Seals Win Suit against Vaccine Mandate

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit ruled in favor of service members objecting to the Navy’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate due to their religious beliefs. On Monday, a three-judge panel denied the Navy’s request to require about three dozen personnel to get vaccinated despite their objections on religious grounds. The SEALs, represented by First Liberty Institute, filed a lawsuit against the Navy since they were at risk of being fired for not complying with the mandate. ‘Events around the world remind us daily that there are those who seek to harm America. Our military should be welcoming service members, not forcing them out because of their religious beliefs,’ Director of Military Affairs for First Liberty Institute Mike Berry said in a statement. ‘The purge of religious service members is not just devastating to morale, but it harms America’s national security,’ he continued.”
