As a secularist, I understand that I fail to feel the emotional pull of the church and of the joy worshiping in the company of fellow faithful. I get that being able to be in the company of fellow Christians and Jews is important in the cause of religious practice. But is a temporary restriction such as this something religious leaders want to oppose knowing they will have to face their members when some lose family, friends and fellow worshipers because they packed churches and synagogues?
“Even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten,” the majority said an unsigned opinion issued just before midnight Wednesday. “The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”
