US District Judge Reed O’Connor issued a temporary injunction on Monday against the Biden Vaccine Mandate in the case of 35 Navy SEAls. The stay is temporary, but prevents the Navy from discharging the SEALs for noncompliance, and takes aim at the mass denials that are being utilized rather than case by case review as required by law.

The Navy has not granted a religious exemption to any vaccine in recent memory. It merely rubber stamps each denial. 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. There is no military exclusion from our Constitution.”District Judge Reed O’Connor (American Military News)
None of the military branches have approved a religious exemption for any service member. Of the 35 Navy SEALS, 29 exemptions have already been denied and a form letter sent out. That same form letter was sent to all service members requesting a religious exemption.
In his decision in favor of the injunction sought by the 35 Navy sailors, O’Connor wrote that they objected to being vaccinated on four grounds: “opposition to abortion and the use of aborted fetal cell lines in development of the vaccine; belief that modifying one’s body is an affront to the Creator; divine instruction not to receive the vaccine, and opposition to injecting trace amounts of animal cells into one’s body.”
“Plaintiffs’ beliefs about the vaccine are undisputedly sincere, and it is not the role of this court to determine their truthfulness or accuracy,” the judge wrote.AP
The 35 Navy SEALs plaintiffs in the case believe that the US Navy is out-of-hand rejecting their requests, and ignoring their sincerely held religious beliefs in violation of the Constitution. The lawsuit was brought by the First Liberty Institute on behalf of of “35 Navy Special Warfare service members, including 26 Navy SEALs, multiple Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewmen (SWCC) and Navy Divers, and an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Technician.” The service members all belong to various Christian denominations. 47 Republican Senators sent an amicus brief in support of their lawsuit.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the injunction was being “reviewed.” He previously claimed that each and every request for exemption was “reviewed by a chaplain” and given “quite a lot of thought.” It has been clear from the current situation that either he doesn’t realize that the process is not being utilized properly or he’s lying. If a “chaplain” happens to believe differently than the service member, it is impossible for a fair determination to be made. Who reviewed them, of what denomination are they, and how would they know whether a service member is sincere or not? The rule is inherently flawed.
Yes, US Military members must be vaccinated against many diseases based on their international travel. The difference with this vaccine rests in its roots in the abortion industry.
