A group of Navy SEALs went to court in an effort to avoid a mandatory coronavirus vaccine injection, a requirement for continuing their military service.
According to their attorney, Michael Berry with the First Liberty Institute, the military has allowed "hundreds, possibly thousands of medical exemptions" while refusing to grant a single religious exemption. He calls it "blatant religious hostility," and it seems a federal judge may agree.
U.S. District Judge Reed Charles O'Connor has issued a temporary injunction against the Biden administration. In his ruling, the judge said, "The Navy service members, in this case, seek to vindicate the very freedoms they have sacrificed so much to protect. The COVID-19 pandemic provides the government no license to abrogate those freedoms. There is no COVID-19 exception to the First Amendment." The judge added: "There is no military exclusion from our Constitution."
As Dr. James Dobson has written, all our constitutionally-protected freedoms flow from the fundamental freedom of religion:
Our founders knew that our newly formed Republic would survive only as long as a religious and moral people upheld it.
We can't compromise one jot or tittle within that fundamental right. We must fight for it with every ounce of our strength and determination. We cannot remain silent when vicious and raucous mobs or political agents seek to cancel what we hold most dear.
Those who oppose religious freedom have a devious agenda, and it is paving a perilous path for our nation.
Midterm elections will be upon us this November. Are you ready to elect representatives who will defend your freedom?
