BREAKING: SCOTUS Rules 5-4 to Grant Catholic Diocese, Orthodox Jews' Request to Block Cuomo Attendance Limits

The court on a 5-4 vote granted requests made by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and two Orthodox Jewish congregations

The court’s action won’t have any immediate impact since the two groups that sued as a result of the restrictions, the Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox Jewish synagogues in Brooklyn and Queens:

US Supreme Court ruled restrictions on NY places of worship during the pandemic violated the First Amendment - in the first significant action by Trump-appointed Amy Barrett, who cast the deciding vote for the Catholic Church & Orthodox Jewish synagogues.

The high court granted requests made by a Brooklyn Catholic diocese and two Orthodox Jewish congregations to bar the state from enforcing attendance limits inside churches and synagogues.

NY Gov. Cuomo: "If You Take Away The Money From Orthodox Jewish Community... They Will Comply"

This is one of the reasons Cuomo is targeting the Orthodox Jewish community.  Because they support Trump.  The other is he’s proven to be an anti-Semite.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo: "I have to say to the Orthodox community tomorrow, 'If you're not willing to live with these rules, then I'm going to close the synagogues.'"

Are Democrats prepared to say a devout Catholic is by definition unfit to serve on the Supreme Court? If no pro-life Justice is acceptable then no faithful Catholic, Evangelical or Orthodox Jew can be considered. Are Democrats really prepared to alienate that many Americans?

“The Exclusive@Ami_Magazine  Poll, What Orthodox Jews really think about President Trump” @JakeTurx 

1. A “peaceful protestor” just now interviewed on Fox warned if he doesn’t get what he wants from DeBlasio and Cuomo he will burn the stores in the Diamond district of New York. Many if not most of those stores are owned by Orthodox Jews.

Tomorrow I will go to Romania as a pilgrim, to walk together with our brothers of the Romanian Orthodox Church and with the Catholic faithful. I ask you, please, to pray for me.

PSA: A synagogue being “conservative” is not a statement about the political beliefs of its members. Conservatism is a denomination within Judaism akin to Reform, Orthodox, Reconstructionist. It has Zero to do with how one feels about the GOP or Trump or whatever.

Let us remember our Christian brothers and sisters of the East, Catholics and Orthodox, who are celebrating Christmas today.
