The Associated Press reports:
As significant numbers of Americans seek religious exemptions from COVID-19 vaccine mandates, many faith leaders are saying: Not with our endorsement.
The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas, a Southern Baptist megachurch, said he and his staff “are neither offering nor encouraging members to seek religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates.”
“There is no credible religious argument against the vaccines,” he said via email. “Christians who are troubled by the use of a fetal cell line for the testing of the vaccines would also have to abstain from the use of Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Ibuprofen, and other products that used the same cell line if they are sincere in their objection.”

RELATED: Jeffress last appeared on JMG when blamed Jerry Falwell Jr.’s downfall on Satan. Before that, he declared that all Christians will have jobs in heaven because “God created us to be workers.”
And before that, we heard from him when he revealed that the police are “ministers of God” and that to resist them is to resist God himself.
Jeffress has also said that all Jews and Mormons go to hell, that Obama was the precursor to the antichrist, that LGBTs need rescuing from Satan’s deception, that God designed the borders of the United States, that there will be civil war if Trump is removed from office, and that God gave Trump the moral authority to have foreign leaders assassinated.
Last April, Trump promoted his online Easter service. In July, it was revealed that Jeffress’ megachurch got up to $5 million in bailout funds. Last September, Jeffress said that any Christian who votes for Biden has “soul his soul to Satan.”
