“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1
Without a doubt, the Covid-19 vaccine debate has brought about serious, fierce, and sometimes heated discussions between families, friends, co-workers, and others over the past months. Americans can and should use their freedom of speech to thoroughly examine and thoughtfully converse with each other, family members, and their physicians about issues like this.
At the end of the day, after intensely evaluating the issue, whether individual Americans land on the same page in regard to the issue of Covid-19 vaccinations or not we must honor our fellow Americans’ freedom to decide whether or not to take the vaccine. After all, the very essence of what it means to be an American is defined in one word, “freedom.”
Unfortunately, the Biden Administration could care less about our God-given First Amendment rights. Recently, in a clear disregard for religious liberty President Biden used the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to issue a national vaccine mandate for employees. This severe overreach is being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court where oral arguments will be heard today.
The Family Foundation stands ready to combat any threat to our uttermost important right to religious liberty. That’s why The Family Foundation joined 30 other family policy organizations in filing a legal brief at the U.S. Supreme Court emphasizing what is at stake.
The legal brief explains that protecting religious liberty has been of paramount importance since the Founding; Congress and the states are highly protective of religious liberty when making laws; but agencies tend to under protect religious liberty, a problem exacerbated when agencies exceed their statutory authority like OSHA has done.
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, thank You, for giving us as Americans the very precious right of religious liberty. Lord, we lift up those who will argue against vaccine mandates at the U.S. Supreme Court today, may they be filled with Your wisdom and understanding. Father, help the Justices on the highest Court in our land to rule righteously and uphold our First Amendment rights. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
