There’s good news for religious freedom in the United States. The fact that it was ever questioned is a considerable concern for liberties and constitutional rights that we all should hold tightly to. The constitution is very clear when it says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
The military COVID-19 vaccine mandate isn’t going well for the federal government. At first, it may have been, but they were sure to run into a snag when the military started denying all religious exemptions.
So, military leaders denied a religious exemption, took the military to court, and won. US District Court Judge Steven Merryday granted a temporary restraining order that Liberty Counsel brought. Liberty Counsel brought the case to the US District Court on behalf of a Marine Lt. Colonel and a Navy Surface Warfare Officer.
A hearing is scheduled for February 11 to determine the furtherance of the case. The judge ruled that the military leaders remain “as is” through injunctive relief.
Only three of the over 23,000 religious exemptions were accepted, and all three had already given their retirement notice. How gracious of the military.
There’s not a light at the end of the tunnel, though.
Federal agencies, around 55 of them, are compiling religious information on American citizens. Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s desire to keep lists of American citizens is coming to fruition.
Head of Liberty Counsel Action, Mat Staver, said, “IBM developed a database of Jewish persons in Europe. The Nazis were able to identify Jews using this database and bar them from public and subsequently private jobs. The Nazis used this database to track down persons who were destined for ghettos and concentration camps.”
Lists are never good. Lists in the hands of the federal government will be the end of civilization as we know it. These combined give a clear picture that targeted religious ousting from society will come to the United States. It’s a matter of time unless you vote very carefully.
Staver continued, “The federal government has begun compiling a database of religious Americans. We cannot let this happen. We cannot tolerate a federal database that categorizes people based on their faith or medical status. What possible good can these government lists possibly do? I can’t think of any.”
Buckle up. It’s going to get rough if the government goes through with this.
