California Governor Gavin Newsom is going to have a lot to answer for. The governor decided to ignore the United States Supreme Court's decision to lift restrictions on religious gatherings and cracked down even harder.
Newsom claims that there is an increase in virus cases where people sing and chant.
“California is experiencing an unprecedented surge in COVID-19 cases, creating an even greater public health need for restrictions on prolonged communal gatherings in indoor places,” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office, who filed a request for the restrictions to be lifted.
“Scientific evidence demonstrates why those activities pose a particularly grave threat of virus transmission during the current pandemic,” declared the state’s lawyers. However, Newsom has not implemented strict restrictions for other gatherings such as sports events, movie production, or protests.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Newsom is targeting churches:
The court rejected a San Diego County church’s challenge in May to Newsom’s orders limiting indoor worship services to 25% of the building’s capacity, with a maximum attendance of 100. Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, saying the state was treating churches the same as secular businesses and should be allowed to make its own health care decisions.
Anticipating the ruling, California churches had already asked the Supreme Court to step into their cases, now in lower courts, and strike down Newsom’s current restrictions. For counties in high-risk areas, which covers most of the state, the governor is forbidding all indoor worship services because of the rise in COVID cases, while allowing 25 percent indoor attendance in moderate-risk counties.
The request for immediate court intervention was filed by Harvest Rock Church of Pasadena and Harvest International Ministry, which is affiliated with 162 California churches. And Salvatore Cordileone, the Catholic archbishop in San Francisco, said Saturday he may also challenge Newsom’s order in court.
“We cannot afford to let tyranny against religion rise in the guise of well-meaning governmental ‘protections,’” said San Diego attorney Thomas LiMandri.
“In Monday’s filing, Newsom’s lawyers said the governor’s latest restrictions on indoor worship are similar to the limits California is imposing on other ‘indoor congregate events,’ such as movies and lectures, as well as indoor restaurant dining, exercising in gyms or socializing in bars,” the Chronicle wrote. “Noting that the case is awaiting a ruling in the Ninth U.S. Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco, Newsom’s lawyers asked the high court to allow that court to rule, based on the standards the high court set in the New York case.”
