Court upholds Newsom's coronavirus ban on in-person church services in California

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld California Gov. Gavin Newsom's ban on in-person church services due to the coronavirus crisis.

“We’re dealing here with a highly contagious and often fatal disease for which there presently is no known cure. In the words of Justice Robert Jackson, if a “[c]ourt does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact,’” they wrote.

A photo of the 9th Circuit Constitution doesn’t matter anymore because of a virus. “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.' -Benjamin Franklin Fiesta_ANovel It's about public health not religion. It's about right wing evangelicals controlling everything. What ever the people need or want they are against it even if it is for their benefit as well

Will be Overturned quickly on appeal The Court cannot erase the United States Constitution and it does not matter what the court says. The 9th Circuit Court is not a real court and no court can erase the Constitution. This is an attack on Religious freedom. A Blatant illegal attack on the 1st amendment.

I guess Osteen has a mortgage due... You don’t have to go to church to be a Christian. Pray at home, stay healthy. Why the war on faith? How is that so evil? I’m still waiting for the ninth circuit do you have a good opinion on anything. Sure they did. seeCFC If you need a church to be a Christian you are not much of a Christian, likewise if you need a church to pray you are not much of a Christian. All trumps noise isn't about your local churches it's about the Mega Churches, the almighty dollars.

Time to start taxing the hell out of them. Walmart and Target are likely looking at this decision thinking ‘why don’t we just clear some shelf space and add pop-up churches in our ‘essential’ big box stores to bring in even more potential customers.’ This a great reason we need to vote all Democrats including Democrat judges out of office!

Federal intervention will be needed The emergency is over . End this Communist take over. The Democrats will never volunteerly give up the power they have stolen. Look at the states they control. They are rapidly spinning into civil war as they continue to enact more and more draconian proclamations Oh, the 9th circuit? Shocking.

Jesus is essential once you get past 15 people you are in a meeting no longer a fellowship ; Jesus spent most pf his time with 1 or 2 people traveled with 12 ; when you can walk on water crowds do tend to show up why are churches even around ; you believe in Jesus or you don't ; rich prosperity preachers can't work ; you can only have 12 - 15 people in your life the other 7.7 billion try to be civil

Refuse to comply!!! Churches are not essential, but your relationship with Christ is. PRAY AT HOME FOR FUCKS SAKE. Its only church big fuckin deal right needs chruch for talking snakes. Seems legit. There are a lot of things that are essential and some of them need to be isolated. Walmart. Home Depot. Target. Lowes.

Do you really need a building to pray God? Yeah! church service is Great... but if you can die from a sickness you receive from the person next to you... is that a gift? Funerals are essential morgfair True Christians don't need a church...to feel and be.. close with God They should start being TAXED if they are essential.

He will loose in the supreme court. The 9 the circuit has the most overturned decisions of any federal appeals court. Let's keep them closed. You have to be dumb to believe their fairy tail in 21st century. My best mates older brother is a Pastor here in Australia , the last time i saw him all he talked about was how big his new outdoor home extensions were , and how rich his soon to be son in law is , nothing but $$$$ in his eyes.

ClementsIra Go to church all you damn want. But you have to stay there so you don’t possibly infect the rest of us. Why opening up churches is essential? Is it because they pay their share of taxes or are taxed? “...is likely to further anger pastors who claim that California is trampling on religious freedoms.” That’s what the the court didn’t buy. We’re not it buying either. Newsom is right.

The 9th? Well, duh. Now onto SCOTUS, where it will be 6-3 against GavinNewsom. LBOcean111 Are churches essential? No, God is everywhere - Acts 17:24 Don't we need a place to pray? No, praying in public is hypocrisy - Matthew 6:6 Stay the fuck home! Essential factories for superstition. If these protesters are so devoted, they can watch masses being heard regularly on Sundays on TV. They won’t even have to dole out the usual stipend. With TIVO and DVR, they can pause and watch after finding another lame excuse to support that Duck in the WH.

morgfair God prefers live followers to dead attendees...Well, that's what he told me! Too bad God isn't everywhere and you have to go to a church so he'll hear your prayers.... wait, the ministers just need to pass the plate. The 9th Circuit has an overturned record close to 80% Stay inside your homes sheep 🐑 Your masters require it. Baaahhhhhh

Let 👏 them 👏 kill 👏each other 👏 The negative of reading the Times is there are no counterpoints. It’s Newsom is great, Trump is bad, Pelosi is great, etc.. It’s like SNL. I don’t mind skits picking on Trump but there are plenty of opportunities for Biden sketches too. We just never see any. Trump needs prayer

Well done, judges. We must thwart Trumper logic at every turn. Doubt god is proud The Nazi Republicans go to church to look good or to get your money. Wolves in sheep's clothing, if Trump wins he will turn your children against you and open up the concentration camps for non-supporters. Can’t go to sporting events or Concerts! You don’t need to go to church! Simple!

A bullshit liberal court legislating from the bench instead of interpreting laws based on the constitution. Gee the 9th Circuit. Another reason to move to Texas or Florida. They look exactly like magas Churches are not essential. You can pray and read the bible whereever, and that means that closed churches doesn't suppress your religious freedom.

Even the bible says the Church (as a building) is non-essential. Extremely disturbing decision of Ninth Cir. If right to free exercise of religion can be suspended by gov't, how about other 1st A and Const rights? Court just gave autonomy to Cal to enact any rule without right to challenge based on indiv rights.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof California doesn’t uphold tyrants and BS realDonaldTrump farkingicehole Good! Keep them closed and also keep them tax free. OhButYouWantItBothWays TooBad This will be overturned when bumped to higher court. Had the cluttering Haircut used his powers to close everything, he'd have a case. When he started deciding the individual worthiness of businesses he brought in arbitrariness. Speaking as a man who just bought socks at Target.

Ya didn’t listen to RecallGavinNewsom when you had the chance iquitsmokingcig What about the freedom of not wanting to get sick, die, or hurt our loved ones. PRAYHOME Here we have the same problem but if the church's will open so the theatres should open. 9th circuit? 😂🤦🏽‍♀️ Of course... Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. For we live by faith, not by sight.

Nope, church is not essential No surprise with the 9th Circuit Good... COVIDIOTS Chuds: But the constitution!!! Appeal will come. 'Ban on church services' shpuld never be a headline in America. Awww, I was hoping they’d get to learn their lesson... Honestly, Tenth Amendment . I don't get why this is even a topic. Btw, Christianity is not about tempting people so why tempt them to go to Church and get sick?

Thank God... pun intended. Grabbing the popcorn and waiting for the comments.... Good. Crazy American Taliban. Worship at home then. Online services with those in other states. Thank .... lol

Newsom promises reopening plan for churches as Trump demands immediate actionNewsom promises reopening plan for churches as Trump demands immediate action. Don't get pushed around by Trump or you're a chump. He didn’t demand it! Stop playing your hate politics. It’s getting old Real Christians would wear masks so as not to harm others. Real Christians understand that 'church' to Jesus means people not a building. You can listen to a sermon online. They're a dime a dozen. But, if you call yourself a Christian, act like one.

Trump counting on Supreme Court to block probes, lawsuitsPresident Donald Trump won at least a temporary reprieve from the Supreme Court earlier this week in keeping secret grand jury materials from the Russia investigation away from Democratic lawmakers. The president and his administration are counting on the justices for more help to stymie other investigations The Supreme Court should vote to release Trump’s tax records. His greatest fear is being exposed as being merely rich but not a billionaire and owing loads of money to Russians and Saudis. Immunity doesn't last forever. Unless you live in Russia or Peru.

Supreme Court won’t put transgender inmate’s surgery on holdThe U.S. Supreme Court will not put an Idaho transgender inmate’s gender confirmation surgery on hold while a lawsuit over the procedure moves forward.
