John Roberts Sides With Liberal Justices, Says Churches Cannot Defy COVID-19 Lockdown

Chief Justice John Roberts has ticked off quite a few conservatives over the years. His latest move on churches and coronavirus isn’t going to help sway those people back in his corner.

From USA Today:

WASHINGTON – A deeply divided Supreme Court refused Friday night to allow churches in California and Illinois to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic with more worshippers than state plans permit.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who cast the deciding vote in the more consequential California case announced just before midnight, said choosing when to lift restrictions during a pandemic is the business of elected officials, not unelected judges. He was joined in the vote by the court’s four liberal justices.

Roberts, the only one of the five to explain his vote, compared in-person church services to other forms of assembly. His conservative colleagues who dissented compared the services to secular businesses.

Back in January, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) asked a question that was so blatantly out of line that it forced Roberts to stare daggers at the failed 2020 Democrat presidential nominee.

Roberts was not thrilled in the slightest and it isn’t hard to see why.
