EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Students say Cuomo is wrong to restrict churches due to COVID-19
With state and local governments enforcing yet another round of lockdowns, places of worship are once again forced to fight restrictions, arguing that such orders are unconstitutional when applied to them but not to others.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is one of the politicians facing mounting criticism for his state's lockdown restrictions. In late November, the Supreme Court ruled against the Democratic politician's attendance caps on churches and other places of worship.
“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,” Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in his opinion.
Given the recent controversy, Campus Reform asked students for their thoughts on the hot-button issue. Watch the full video above to hear how they responded.
