California district judge refuses to lift COVID-19 restrictions on houses of worship
Despite US Supreme Court decisions to strike down COVID-19 worship service restrictions in two recent cases, a federal judge again refused to lift worship restrictions in a case brought by California’s South Bay United Pentecostal Church, the Christian Post reports.

US District Court Judge Cynthia Bashant denied the church’s petition for a second time Monday, even after an appeals court ordered her to rehear the case in light of the two new SCOTUS rulings.

Based in Chula Vista, the South Bay church has engaged in protracted legal action against California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s limitations on in-person worship. According to state regulations, houses of worship may hold indoor services of up to 25% of their building’s capacity, to a maximum of 100 people: the South Bay church views these restrictions as a violation of their First Amendment right to freedom of worship, the Christian Post reports. ...

While many suffer from the lockdowns, job losses with little to no way to provide for their families, that isn't the case for some of the elite - https://nypost.com/2020/12/27/covid-19-pandemic-making-healthcare-leaders-billionaires/?fbclid=IwAR3gLzGsy-t1z_brGNfdU6qCCQdY5UBF01jw20Vrw-KHEGKYwsMUotPdJho

The Christian Post had a pretty interesting article reporting how churches in other nations have complied with the restrictions by holding church daily in their facilities.

Perhaps the churches will eventually recognize they need no permission from courts to exercise their freedom of religion, which supercedes courts which are subject to it. Perhaps they might even bring themselves to recognize that governors do not have authority to make laws, nor to take from legislators that authority for endless “emergency” excuses.

There is no emergency. If there is one, someone please explain why it is so.

“Even if we need more time to consider the pending motion in full,” O’Scannlain wrote, “we should have granted the church at least the temporary relief it needs to ensure that its members can exercise freely the fundamental right to practice their Christian religion on one of the most sacred Christian days of the year.”

The Supreme Court didn't actually rule on this but granted an injunction that should have been applied across the nation.

Meanwhile, California has led the nation in Progressive anti-God agendas -- prospective members of the Biden team were key players.

From the human standpoint, there is a looming battle between the Supreme Court and the State of California.
