WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week, in a narrow, 5-4 decision that New York could not prohibit large religious gatherings in an attempt to fight the novel coronavirus.
Pushing the court to its decision was the vote and opinion of its newest member, Justice Amy Covid Barrett, who was confirmed by Senate Republicans on a party-line vote just days before Americans voted to reject President Donald J. Trump’s second term. This morning, the court issued another stunning 5-4 opinion, and it’s another one that it’s hard to imagine would have come down before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, vacating her seat.

“This court holds that, while the First Amendment specifically prohibits the government from cheerleading for any specific religion, or against it,” Covid Barrett wrote in a newly published opinion, “the First Amendment is truly just a suggestion, when applied to Christians. It’s been widely accepted as precedent, at least since I was rammed through the confirmation process, that Christians get their own, special set of rules to America by. And those rules state very clearly that Jesus is the Reason for the Season, and so shall this court order from this day forward.”
Covid Barrett seemed to indicate in her opinion that there will more decisions like this one in the future, unless and until incoming President Joe Biden works with a Democratic-majority in Congress to expand the size of the court.
“This justice wouldn’t be surprised to find herself in the position to codify America’s official Christendom with another case somewhere down the line,” Covid Barrett wrote. “Because it often falls on the righteous to do the bidding of the Lord. So shall it be with me. I shall one day help to establish the religious theocracy our founders so clearly wanted when they broke free of a monarch. No need to thank me, of course, but you’re all also pre-welcome.”
