Biden just learned the hard way why you should never mess with Navy SEALS.
A federal judge dealt a serious blow to Joe Biden’s mandate and has temporarily halted its implementation among Navy SEALS.
A lawsuit filed by a large group of US Navy SEALS and other members of Naval special warfare personnel stated that Biden’s denial of their religious exemptions violates their religious freedom.
US District Judge Reed O’Conner agreed and signed a temporary injunction after hearing testimony from several Navy SEALS.
“The Navy service members in this case seek to vindicate the very freedoms they have sacrificed so much to protect,” O’Connor wrote in the order. “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.”
The order revealed that the Navy has not (as of the writing of this post) granted any religious accommodation requests. Those objecting to the mandate are part of the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant branches of Christianity.
“Forcing a service member to choose between their faith and serving their country is abhorrent to the Constitution and America’s values,” said Mike Berry, General Counsel for First Liberty Institute, in a press release about the injunction. “Punishing SEALs for simply asking for a religious accommodation is purely vindictive and punitive. We’re pleased that the court has acted to protect our brave warriors before more damage is done to our national security.”
Most that are requesting exemption are doing so because they are pro-life. Christians are passing on the vaccine due to the fact that they were developed using tissue from an aborted child. What we are witnessing is the Biden administration taking out revenge on the pro-life. However, Joe just tangled with the Navy SEALs who don’t know how to lose.
