Reverend Franklin Graham pointed out that President Trump’s successful appointment of three Supreme Court judges has been a huge win for freedom-loving Americans.
In a Facebook post, Reverend Graham said, “This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for President Donald J. Trump’s appointment of three conservative Supreme Court justices who ruled late last night in favor of churches and against government overreach in the state of New York.”
Even though the odds are against President Trump winning reelection, Americans will continue to reap the bounties of the President’s hard work for decades to come.
The case Graham referred to was one in which the Supreme Court ruled that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions on places of worship were unconstitutional and inconsistent. Cuomo’s restrictions limited religious gatherings to 10 to 25 people.
Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first appointment, said, “It is time—past time—to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques.”
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel of America jointly brought the lawsuit against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. With their victory, they have paved the way for religious institutions around the nation to fight back against restrictions. The Supreme Court will fight back against government overreach, and that is something all Americans can be thankful for.
