Via email from hate group leader Mat Staver:
Liberty Counsel has sent a demand letter to United Airlines on behalf of scores of airline employees with religious exemptions who have been told they must get the COVID shots in order to keep their jobs.
These employees are facing illegal resistance from both the airlines and lack of support from the unions. Many of these employees have engaged Liberty Counsel to bring legal action if United Airlines denies their religious exemption requests.
United Airlines became the first major U.S. carrier to mandate the shots for its approximately 67,000 employees, who must be fully vaccinated by September 27 or face termination.
However, instead of legally accommodating their religious exemptions, the airline company is using administrative obstacles such as asking personal and theological questions that are unlawful.
For example, United Airlines is illegally telling its employees that to obtain a religious exemption they must be an adherent of a recognized religion with a history of opposition to vaccines.
Employees are also being told they need to include a letter from a clergy to support their sincere religious beliefs. This is false and unlawful. The only issue is whether the employee has a sincere religious belief, not whether a clergy or a “recognized religion” agrees.
Since all three of the currently available COVID-19 “vaccines” are developed and produced from, tested with, researched on, or otherwise connected with the aborted fetal cell lines, many United employees have sincerely held religious beliefs that compel them to abstain from accepting or injecting any of these shots, or taking those sold by companies that profit from the sale of injections and other products derived from abortion.
Not only do these administrative obstacles violate state and federal law but are also causing stress for United’s employees who are being forced to choose between keeping their jobs, which they love, and honoring their most deeply held religious beliefs about life, health, and existence.
In fact, Liberty Counsel is not aware of any approval of religious exemptions so far. Therefore, the company seems to be running down the clock to the deadline which is escalating the stress of United’s employees each day.
This undue stress is a serious distraction, and distractions cause mistakes, and mistakes increase the risk of safety incidents affecting both employees and passengers.
Staver has previously claimed that the vaccine has caused tens of thousands of deaths. He also claims that it causes miscarriages, sterility, brain damage, and is intended to “stop procreation.” On a podcast earlier this month, Staver’s guest declared that that vaccine contains graphene oxide with the intent of “linking people to the internet.”
