Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr.

(The Center Square) – Associate U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said there’s a “growing hostility to religion” in a keynote address he gave highlighting the unique protection of religion in the U.S. Constitution.

“The problem that looms is not just indifference to religion, it’s not just ignorance about religion,” he said at a 2022 Notre Dame Religious Liberty Summit in Rome last week.

Is congregating in a building a necessity to worship? Can’t people worship/practice their religion outside of church? Weren’t there online church services? It seems that churches are demanding more & more; even if it puts the safety of others at risk (pandemic). I’m also curious where the proof is that God came up with the idea of liberty? God did not even come up with the idea of religion…people did & people invented it.
