It looks like the military has no interest in approving religious exemptions for their covid vaccine mandate.
To date, they have granted ZERO religious exemptions to the vaccine mandate.
COVID-19 vaccine mandate deadlines have come and gone, but the U.S. military has still not approved a single religious exemption.
Lawyers representing troops seeking exemptions say the military is violating the U.S. Constitution and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and are urging courts to intervene.
â€œItâ€™s now the point where I think we can call it what it is. It appears to be blatant religious discrimination when the military has now conceded, both publicly and in court filings I should say, that they have approved multiple numerous medical and administrative exemptions but yet they have refused to approve any religious accommodations,â€ Mike Berry, an attorney with First Liberty Institute, told The Epoch Times.
â€œThatâ€™s textbook definition of religious discrimination,â€ he added.
Taken together, military branches have granted 12,109 medical or administrative exemptions, according to an Epoch Times review. Spokespersons for each branch confirmed this week that zero religious exemptions have been granted, even as hundreds have been denied.
