Liz Wheeler broke the news via her verified Twitter account that the United States Navy plans to deny all Navy Sailors their request for exemption of the Covid vaccine for religious purposes. In a series of tweets, Wheeler shared copies of memos and other directives from the Department of the Navy highlighting the unconstitutional plan.
According to US Navy policy, each case requesting a religious exemption will be judged on its own. Not only that, but the Navy must use the “least restrictive means” available to preserve the individual’s religious freedom over the government’s interest.
Wheeler claims she has “two sworn affidavits from Sailors who heard CDR Schley claim she didn’t want to issue blanket denial of all religious exemption requests but was forced by Captain Ratkus.”
