From reading other news, I realize a lot of people may have been upset by a recent talk by Supreme Court Justice Alito. But I will say this:  I think he was absolutely correct in saying that we have seen “sweeping” and “previously unimaginable restrictions on individual liberty” as a result of the pandemic.  The question is:  are they constitutional? And should Alito have been commenting on any of this or is that inappropriate at this time? I don’t know, but if the question actually gets to the Supreme Court whether a state can restrict attending a house of worship or if that’s a violation of the First Amendment, I’m betting the court will side with the First Amendment over the public health concern.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
