Evangelicals Furious at Supreme Court Justice John Roberts For Not Allowing Churches to Expose Large Groups of People to Deadly COVID-19 Like Casinos Do

Evangelicals and conservatives are furious at Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts who voted with the majority 5-4 on July 24 to not allow churches in Nevada to have large gatherings — exposing more people to the deadly COVID-19 virus — as casinos and restaurants do.

The New York Times reports that the Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley in Dayton, Nevada, sued the state of Nevada because casinos, restaurants and amusement parks can have up to 50 percent of their fire-code capacities, while houses of worship are limited to 50 people during the contagious coornavirus which has killed over 140,000 Americans in a few months.

Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch dissented by claiming churches had the same rights as other businesses during a deadly pandemic.

Evangelicals and conservatives took to Twitter to voice their protest against the ruling that will keep churches safer than casinos and restaurants.
