By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

Legitimacy of ‘customer’ in Supreme Court gay rights case raises ethical and legal flags

A Christian graphic artist who the Supreme Court said can refuse to make wedding websites for gay couples pointed during her lawsuit to a request from a man named “Stewart” and his husband-to-be. The twist? Stewart says it never happened.

⚖️ AP investigation supercharges SCOTUS ethics push

A months-long investigation by the AP revealed a pattern of conduct by Supreme Court justices that likely would violate ethics rules that cover other government officials, including lower federal court judges:

  • Staff for Justice Sonia Sotomayor repeatedly prodded venues that hosted her for speaking engagements to buy her books, which have earned her at least $3.7 million since she was confirmed in 2009.
  • The Supreme Court's restrictions on what qualifies as a "fundraiser" excludes events at public colleges in which organizers have used a justice's attendance to woo VIP donors.
  • Visits to universities have also facilitated multiple encounters between justices and elected officials, despite being branded as academic in nature.

Why it matters: The Senate Judiciary Committee is planning to vote July 20 on legislation establishing a Supreme Court code of conduct — an effort Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said today is bolstered by the AP report.

The Supreme Court ruled that discrimination is protected speech. As the children of Holocaust survivors, we understand where this leads.

(JTA) — When the U.S. Supreme Court sided last month with a Colorado web designer who refuses to do work for same-sex couples because of her religious objection to same-sex marriage, it risked opening the floodgates to a host of discriminatory acts under the guise of First Amendment freedom of expression.

📊 Dems pan Supreme Court

 
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdatawrapper.dwcdn
Data: Gallup. Chart: Axios Visuals

Americans' approval of the U.S. Supreme Court is tied for a record low — 40%, Axios' Stef Kight writes from Gallup polling out this morning.

  • Why it matters: Republicans used to hate the Supreme Court. Now Democrats do.

🔬 Zoom in: Look at that 45-point gap between GOP and Democratic approval.

  • It's a flip from eight years ago, after the court legalized same-sex marriage.
  • Back then, three-quarters of Democrats approved of the court — but just 18% of Republicans did.

Roberts and Barrett join liberals as Supreme Court revives federal ghost gun restrictions

The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to freeze a lower court order that bars the government from regulating so-called ghost guns – untraceable homemade weapons – as firearms under federal law.

https://www.cnn.com/2023/08/08/politics/supreme-court-ghost-guns/index.html?

The Big Question Behind Amy Coney Barrett’s Surprise Vote on Ghost Guns

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court sided against criminals who wish to purchase untraceable guns online for the purpose of committing crimes. The vote was 5–4. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the three liberals to preserve a new federal rule that restricts the sale of “ghost guns” to licensed firearm dealers. These guns can be purchased on the internet anonymously, without a background check, and assembled in less than an hour. They are heavily favored by violent offenders because they are virtually impossible to trace, and their use in the United States has spiked by more than 1,000 percent since 2017. Despite all this, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh voted to block the new ghost gun regulations nationwide on the shadow docket. And it remains unclear whether Roberts and Barrett will ultimately uphold these regulations on the merits when the court takes up the case on its regular docket.

Supreme Court says Apple can keep its App Store payment rules for now

The Supreme Court has rejected Fortnite publisher Epic’s request to make Apple loosen its App Store rules as a legal battle progresses. As first reported by Bloomberg and Reuters, Justice Elena Kagan declined to vacate a stay on a lower court order about Apple’s anti-steering rules, which limit how iOS app developers can direct users to alternate payment methods. Kagan did not issue an explanation for the decision, but Epic’s petition was noted as denied on the Supreme Court’s website.
