Throughout the West, the medical and political establishments have been pushing hard to get the people skeptical of their experimental vaccines to relent and take the mystery juice causing myocarditis and other severe health problems.
Their weapon of choice has increasingly become mandates, regimes that force people to take vaccines in order to be able to work. While religious objections have been a refuge from this insanity until recently, this recent decision from the U.S. Supreme Court has shown that it is foolish to expect any such protection under secular law, however bold its claims to religious freedom may be.
“The Supreme Court on Friday refused to block Maine’s requirement that health care workers be vaccinated against the coronavirus notwithstanding their religious objections…
As is the court’s custom in rulings on emergency applications, its brief order gave no reasons.”
To clarify, the ruling was concerning an application for an interim measure until the case is decided. That being said, this decision not only shows which way the court will likely rule in establishing the legality of such mandates, but it is also causing damage to people standing to lose their jobs by their application. The lower courts seem to be eager to adopt this as precedent, since 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has held a very similar New York mandate to be legally valid. The Associated Press reports:
“A federal appeals panel on Friday upheld New York state’s vaccine mandate for health care workers, rejecting arguments by lawyers for doctors, nurses, and other professionals that it did not adequately protect those with religious objections…
Attorney Cameron Lee Atkinson, who argued before the appeals panel, said late Friday that he’s already drafting an appeal to bring to the U.S. Supreme Court. Earlier on Friday, that court rejected the appeal of a similar mandate in Maine that also does not allow for a religious exemption…
The Christian plaintiffs oppose medical cooperation in abortion as a matter of religious conviction. All of the available vaccines employ aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development or production, according to court papers…”
This should be concerning to all Muslims, as we share with the Christians in finding medicine developed from babies murdered in the womb to be unacceptable, not to mention other Islamic religious concerns with the experimental vaccine. However, as the cases show, the secular legal establishment does not seem to be on our side. It is also noteworthy that so called “conservative justices” appointed by Trump have voted together with the liberal justices in denying religious freedom. The critique levelled against them by the minority opinion of the more hard-line conservatives in the court is cold comfort, as it does not carry the force of law.
In trying to legitimize itself to the religious, secular law has long made claims of absolute protection for religious belief and the right to exercise religion. The United States was the first and foremost among such regimes, as the First Amendment — claiming to guarantee freedom of speech, religion, and association — has been in place since 1791. Its recent failings, however, prove that such protections are a facade, and when push comes to shove, there is no secular legal system that will fully guarantee our right to religion.
