The Supreme Court has just ruled that California’s limits on house churches and other religious gathering in homes is unconstitutional.

So far, California’s Democrat Governor, Gavin Newsom, has seen his COVID-1984 lockdown restrictions defeated five times at the US Supreme Court. The Supreme Court justices noted once again, that the government failed to prove how restrictions on religious gatherings in homes was any different from people gathering for secular activities, that is allowed.

Fox News explains:

The U.S. Supreme Court in a divided decision late Friday ruled in favor of lifting restrictions on in-home religious gatherings, overturning a lower court ruling that upheld Gov. Gavin Newsom’s limits on people from different homes.

The 5-4 unsigned ruling follows other similar decisions recently regarding churches and the coronavirus pandemic. The decision noted it was the fifth time the court has rejected the Ninth Circuit’s analysis of California coronavirus restrictions.[…]

The ruling stated that before it can limit religious gatherings, the government must prove they pose a greater danger than secular activities that remain open, such as shopping or attending movies.

Gov Newsom’s attempt to ban Bible studies and house churches is in good company, China’s Communist Regime has recently instituted a ban on “illegal social organizations” that most believe is specifically targeting China’s massive house church movement.

The Chinese Communist Party is cracking down on any meetings in homes that have not been registered with the government. The vast majority of China’s house churches have refused to register with the communist regime’s Three Patriot Movement, that regulates and controls churches in China.
