Judge blocks US Navy’s vaccine mandate for challengers citing religious objections

Source: CNN

“A federal judge in Texas on Monday ruled against the Biden administration’s vaccine requirement for members of the military in a decision that took aim at how the Navy’s policies handled those who sought religious exemptions from receiving the Covid-19 vaccine. US District Judge Reed O’Connor issued a preliminary order blocking the Navy from taking adverse action against 35 Navy Seals who sued in court because they are seeking exemption from the vaccine requirement for religious reasons. The order blocked the Navy from implementing policies that would allow those religious objectors to be deemed non-deployable or disqualified from Special Operations.” [editor’s note: Those exemption requests must be interesting — “God’s cool with me murdering eight-year-old girls and stuff like that, but the vaccine? That’s just a bridge too far!” – TLK] (01/03/22)
