The class-action lawsuit against Biden’s military vaccine mandate filed on behalf of 35 Christian Navy SEALs has proven successful. On January 3rd, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor barred the Navy and Defense Department from punishing Christian SEALs who refused the jab.

The legal organization First Liberty Institute represented the 35 Christian Navy SEALs in court to preserve their religious freedoms. Despite all 35 members filing for religious exemptions from the vaccine, they were threatened by the Department of Defense with demotions, pay cuts, a ban on travel, and a variety of other punishments if they refused to comply.

None of the 35 religious exemptions filed were acknowledged by the Navy or Department of State. 

Mike Berry, the general counsel for First Liberty Institute, took up the case and contended that the military’s vaccine policy, as it applies to SEALs, “violates their religious freedoms under the First Amendment and Religious Restoration Act”. When he began representing the 35 Christian SEALs, Berry released the following statement:

“Forcing a service member to choose between their faith and serving their country is abhorrent to the Constitution and America’s values.”

Fortunately, Berry is a fantastic attorney capable of persuading federal judge O’Connor. This judicial decision is a huge victory for Navy SEALs and the right to religious freedom under the first amendment. Nothing is more important than ensuring the freedoms for all Americans, especially those that serve our country.

District Judge Reed O’Connor, who President George W. Bush appointed, understands this. In a section of his 26-page decision, Reed stated: 

“The Navy servicemembers 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.”

O’Connor’s statement is completely correct. Our founding fathers did not enumerate man’s inalienable rights with a sub-clause stating these rights can be violated in the instance of a virus spreading from China. All Americans must wake up and realize that the government cannot use the pandemic to warrant infringing on our essential liberties, such as the freedom of religion.

 Following this judicial victory, Berry released an additional celebratory statement to the public:

“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.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced the original military vaccine mandate in August. Austin believed that such a mandate was “necessary to protect the Force and defend the American people”.

This statement is a complete lie as the vaccine offers little protection and comes with a great amount of risk. Just recently, the USS Milwaukee was held at port due to over 100+ COVID cases among their fully vaccinated crew. 

The level of disrespect that the Biden administration and the Department of State have shown to our brave military members is disgusting. The best among us that preserve our liberty by putting their lives on the line continue to have their religious freedoms and right to bodily autonomy threatened by the Biden administration in the form of the COVID jab. 

Judge O’Connor’s decision to block punishment for the 35 Navy SEALs is certainly a great victory, but the fight must continue against vaccine mandates in all forms.
