As John Adams stated . . . “nothing is more dreaded than the national government meddling with religion.”
On January 3, 2022, just 4 days before the case was argued in front of the Supreme Court, the Family Institute of Connecticut along with family policy councils from 29 other states submitted an amici curiae brief supporting religious liberty against a sweeping federal agency mandate requiring vaccines for millions of workers across America against their perogative.
The incredible brief sums up the importance of religious freedom for all Americans and the prominence given to religious freedom by the Supreme Court and other federal institutions throughout the ages. I encourage you to read it here.
Over 89% of Connecticut’s population has received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine and that is a whopper. At what price should we be pursuing the last of the fully-employed people who, for many reasons including religious liberty, resist a vaccine shot. I have friends whose spouses have faced unemployment over this issue and many of you have too. How outrageous. Heads of families who are responsible for supporting their children have been put at greater stress and at-risk of losing their job because their sincere religious beliefs prevent them from getting vaccinated. This should not be happening in our country.
The Family Institute of Connecticut has supported religious exemptions to vaccine mandates and is proud to do it again through this amici curiae brief. Please pray for our success, for the Justices on the Supreme Court and all attorneys and parties involved. We could not have participated without your support, so we thank God for His Providence and for the continued support of our members.
