Spanish – The Supreme Court of the United States ended the ban on attending religious services in New York due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This also shows how a possible scenario would play out if Donald Trump were to take the lawsuits for irregularities during the presidential election to the Supreme Court.
The receipt and counting of votes after the election date, for example, is unconstitutional and therefore subject to a ruling in Trump’s favor by the Supreme Court.
The vote of newly nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett could be key to this. It is worth noting that her vote was crucial in the 5-4 ruling in favor of allowing freedom of worship in New York.

It is important to point this out because a little more than a week before the presidential elections, Trump nominated Barrett; after the death of the lifetime judge, progressive and feminist Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
It was Ginsburg’s last wish that Trump not nominate any judges before the election since this would produce a conservative, constitutionalist majority on the Supreme Court.
Given that the Senate has a conservative majority, this would imply that Trump has a majority in all three branches of government (except in the House of Representatives, where the Democrats are in the majority).
Having a constitutionalist majority on the Supreme Court guarantees respect for Republican institutions, which are at risk from irregularities during the electoral process, in addition to threats from the Democratic Party to modify the number of Supreme Court justices.
The same one that until now has had the power to limit the excesses of state intervention in the lives of individuals.
For example, the ban on attending religious services by New York’s leftist governor, Andrew Cuomo, was a triple violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
It guarantees freedom of worship, freedom of association/assembly, and freedom of expression.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and the Jewish Orthodox organization Agudath Israel of America publicly criticized the imposition of restrictions.
The institutions alleged that the measures violated the rights contained in the First Amendment to the Constitution, which states that the free exercise of religion cannot be prohibited.
They appealed to the Supreme Court, which found that other services that the state considered “essential” did not have the same restrictions.
All three judges nominated by Trump have been practicing Catholics. Although the first (Neil Gorsuch) reportedly adopted the Episcopal stream, he has been the most permissive so far on LGBT issues.
Amy Coney Barrett is of Catholic formation, both at home and academically. The mother of 7 children, two of them adopted, and one with Down’s Syndrome has faced unconscionable and unreasonable scrutiny for her faith by Democratic legislators during the questioning.
The Democratic Party’s rejection of Catholic judges precedes the Trump administration. As a senator, Joe Biden led the Democratic initiative in 1991 to prevent the appointment of Justice Clarence Thomas.
While Thomas adopted Protestantism to marry his wife, he has remained a conservative. In fact, his wife Ginni Thomas is a conservative activist, and during the 2020 presidential election, she has shared information against Joe Biden, especially regarding his son Hunter’s questionable business dealings.
“Joe Biden should apologize to Clarence Thomas”
The Supreme Court Chief Justice Clarence Thomas was persecuted for his faith, which the Democrats accuse of interfering with his work as a judge.
This could backfire on Biden, now that Trump is warning of his election-fraud suit in the Supreme Court.
For Biden, in his time as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, did his best to get Clarence Thomas off the Supreme Court but failed.
To hear Clarence Thomas in his own words say Biden has no idea what he’s talking about, is just priceless😂😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/67qO2zTa0R

Like Bret Kavanaugh, the second judge nominated by Trump, Thomas was accused of sexual harassment.
In the absence of evidence, both were acquitted and cleared as judges.
Thomas accused Biden of “high-tech lynching.” For that, Joe Biden owes Clarence Thomas an apology, according to the Detroit News.
In short, if Trump’s voter fraud suit goes to the Supreme Court, he could have a majority in his favor and the leader of the nation’s highest institution against Biden.
