Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York welcomed Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling blocking restrictions on religious gatherings introduced by New York to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
“Our churches are indispensable,” Dolan wrote in a tweet congratulating the groups that put the challenges ahead of the constraints in New York.
“I would like to congratulate @BpDiMarzio and @BrooklynDiocese on their victory for religious freedom in the U.S. Supreme Court. Our churches are essential ” Dolan wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
Dolan also wrote in a second tweet that although Catholic churches adhered to security measures because of the coronavirus, it was important to preserve “religious freedom.”
While we have observed and will continue to adhere to all security protocols to protect our community, it is also important to protect a fundamental constitutional right, freedom of religion.

He said the decision showed that the Supreme Court had deceived him.
“I think the Supreme Court’s decision on religious gatherings is a better illustration of the Supreme Court than anything else,” Cuomo said. “It doesn’t matter in terms of practical impact because the zone they were talking about has already been relocated.
