US Supreme Court Steps in after Months of California Discrimination against Churches

Benjamin Gill : Dec 4, 2020  CBN News

"Today's ruling by the Supreme Court provides great relief for churches and places of worship. The handwriting is now on the wall. The final days of Governor Gavin Newsom's 'color-coded executive edicts' banning worship are numbered and coming to an end..." -Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel

The high court tossed a lower federal court ruling that had denied California churches a chance to make their case.

It comes after the Supreme Court recently ruled that New York state violated the First Amendment rights of churches and synagogues. This latest move now forces the lower court to follow the New York ruling as it reexamines California's harsh coronavirus restrictions against religious services.

Liberty Counsel, which is representing churches in California, says, "The restrictions against places of worship in California are more severe than those in New York. Governor Gavin Newsom's orders ban ALL in-person worship for 99.1 percent of Californians."

The Supreme Court's California order comes in the case of Pasadena-based Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry, which has more than 160 churches across the state.

"Irreparable harm is being suffered every day as the churches remain subject to the unconstitutional restrictions, coupled with daily criminal threats, fines, and closure," Liberty Counsel contends.

California's Gov. Newsom has banned indoor worship, including singing and chanting. He's being accused of religious discrimination because he hasn't applied the same standards and capacity limits to warehouses, big-box centers, shopping malls, liquor stores, fitness centers, and museums.

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, "Today's ruling by the Supreme Court provides great relief for churches and places of worship. The handwriting is now on the wall. The final days of Governor Gavin Newsom's 'color-coded executive edicts' banning worship are numbered and coming to an end. It is past time to end these unconstitutional restrictions on places of worship." Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
