California: US Supreme Court allows indoor church services

California was the only state in America still banning indoor church services during its lockdown. However, in a recent ruling, the US Supreme Court has just forced Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom to lift the ban. It is because of something called the US Constitution.

Christian Post reports:

After months of legal battles over Gov. Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19-related restrictions, churches in California can finally restart their indoor worship services, though only at 25% capacity, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday night.

“We are not scientists, but neither may we abandon the field when government officials with experts in tow seek to infringe a constitutionally protected liberty,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

“Even if a full congregation singing hymns is too risky, California does not explain why even a single masked cantor cannot lead worship behind a mask and a plexiglass shield,” Gorsuch added. “Or why even a lone muezzin may not sing the call to prayer from a remote location inside a mosque as worshippers file in.”

Of course, California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom is also on the verge of being recalled for his dystopian lock down of that state. It seems Californians have had enough, and they have the ability to recall politicians and are using it.

The petition is only 100,000 names short of the 1.5 million names needed to spark a recall vote, but they probably need a couple of hundred thousand more to compensate for any names ruled as fake.

But it is not just that, Newsom’s popularity is also plummeting just in time for the election.

The Blaze explains:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, one of the Democratic Party’s rising stars, has taken a massive hit in constituent approval over the last several months.

California residents have weathered some of the harshest restrictions across the nation during the coronavirus pandemic, even having Newsom once rescind many of the restrictions only to enact a second lockdown during a spike in COVID-19 late last fall.[…]

Even more shocking is that just four months ago, the difference between Californians who approved and disapproved of Newsom’s job performance was heavily in Newsom’s favor, 64% to 36%. Now, more Californians disapprove of Newsom than approve of him, 48% to 46%.
