The SCOTUS Doesn’t Care About Religious Liberty

BY Herschel Smith
8 months ago

Pathetic news.

The Supreme Court on Monday permitted a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in New York that doesn’t include a religious exemption, the latest instance in which the nation’s highest court has declined to wade into the issue of vaccination requirements imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

New York state imposed the vaccine mandate for health care workers in August. The policy allows for medical exemptions but not those based on religious objections. An earlier religious exemption to the requirement expired last month.

The Supreme Court was considering two emergency challenges to that mandate and decided to allow the law to stand in both of them. In each case, three conservatives – Associate Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch – said they would have supported temporarily halting enforcement of the mandate.

“Sometimes dissenting religious beliefs can seem strange and bewildering. In times of crisis, this puzzlement can evolve into fear and anger,” Gorsuch wrote in dissenting from the decision to not block the mandate’s enforcement.

“One can only hope today’s ruling will not be the final chapter in this grim story,” he continued. “Cases like this one may serve as cautionary tales for those who follow. But how many more reminders do we need that ‘the Constitution is not to be obeyed or disobeyed as the circumstances of a particular crisis . . . may suggest’?”

Nurses, doctors and other health care workers asserted in a lawsuit that the lack of a religious exemption violated their First Amendment right to practice religion. The objections centered on the use fetal cells from abortions in the vaccines’ development.

That means Roberts, Barrett and Kavanaugh were opposed to stepping in front of the mandate and stopping it.

Pathetic.

Eternity calls them.  We will all answer for our sins.

    Ohh…sound of crickets.

    SCOTUS is an arm of the Deep State, and has been for at least 70 years. It has become nothing more than another tentacle of dictatorship. We now live in a nation where 350,000,000 people’s fates depend upon the whims of five judges. One can argue—and I have—that SCOTUS has been running amok since Marbury.

    Liberty is not derived from the robes of political stooges. Liberty is a gift from God, and it’s exercise is likewise. We are not a debtor of the court, and they cannot make law.
    2 Peter 2:19 – While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    Both extremely disappointing and perplexing – why did Sotomayor refer the petition if she was not in support of a hearing ? Only Thomas would have granted an injunction; Gorsuch and Alito would have heard the application. And, Gorsuch wrote explaining his criticism of the dissenters.

    Are they looking for a clearer question with which to overturn “Jacobson” ?

    And, in other news hochul has order the National Guard to fill nursing and other roles in hospitals, hospital in metro NYC where sadly to many are “compliant” are sending staff to other parts of the state, and certain hospitals are ignoring mandates in order to maintain minimal staffing levels.

    All while it is increasingly clear the pendulum is swinging in reverse given the overwhelming evidence that the plan/scamdemic was such, and mRNA is a far greater threat to individual and community health than SARS-CoVid-2 and its scariants.

    Separately, the “science” has not explained what eradicated the “seasonal flu” now apparently for the third year.

    The bible makes it fairly easy to agree with this decision If you were given by the Father to His only begotten Son.

    “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37

    Jesus Christ having paid for you, making you His purchased possession:

    “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14

    You, body and spirit now belong to our new King which is the Christ of God:

    “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

    You now have no right whatsoever to serve another master. You surrendered all religious liberty at conversion. Having been made free in Christ Jesus why do you now seek another, a wicked and reprobate minister of darkness such as Roberts, and his SCOTUS.

    You’re free to work God’s good pleasure. You are not your own.

    “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13

    SCOTUS serves to the kingdom of death and of hell, all of which is cast into eternal torment which is the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)

    American Christians are failing this test of God on a massive scale. Pray for the weak of heart and mind that that they don’t fall from their steadfastness. 2 Peter 3:17

    This can’t possibly come as a surprise. This is the same court that put its hands over its eyes and refused to look at last year’s brazen and preposterous sham election. The System is not going to save us from the System.

    The present U.S. government is Satanic.

    As Obama plainly stated, the U.S. is not a Christian nation — indeed, it is a pagan cesspool of sodomites, freaks, and swindlers, governed by criminals and perverts.

    The Founders established freedom of religion as a constitutional right because they were godly men.

    One cannot reasonably expect that the ungodly clique of whores and cheats running this country to uphold and enforce the rights of godly people.
