Attorney General William Barr just issued a stunning order and California liberal are in shock. They never expected him to go this far, but he has taken action against their unconstitutional agenda. This is incredible.
According to Breitbart News, the Department of Justice (DOJ) “warned California Gov. Gavin Newsom Tuesday that his reopening plan discriminates against religion and must be modified to allow for religious services to reopen.”
Reportedly, for no reason whatsoever, Newsom’s plan allows certain businesses to begin reopening in “Phase 2” of his plan, but churches aren’t permitted to reopen until “Phase 3.” The DOJ has raised a First Amendment red flag.
“Laws that do not treat religious activities equally with comparable nonreligious activities are subject to heightened scrutiny under the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband.
Dreiband continued in a similar fashion throughout his strongly-worded letter, pointing out that equal treatment must be part of California’s reopening plan and, therefore, it must be altered in order to pass the constitutional test.
It is incredibly sad that far-left governors and other Democrat politicians have used the COVID-19 crisis to unnecessarily infringe upon basic freedoms. The Constitution is still our supreme law and it must be followed.
