BIG VICTORY for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: Illinois health care workers win lawsuit against employer who unlawfully denied RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION from covid vaccine MANDATE

Today, Liberty Counsel settled the nation’s first classwide lawsuit for health care workers over a COVID shot mandate, for more than $10.3 million. The class action settlement against NorthShore University HealthSystem is on behalf of more than 500 current and former health care workers who were unlawfully discriminated against and denied religious exemptions from the COVID shot mandate. The agreed upon settlement was filed today in the federal Northern District Court of Illinois. 

As a result of the settlement, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 to compensate these health care employees who were victims of religious discrimination, and who were punished for their religious beliefs against taking an injection associated with aborted fetal cells. 

This is a historic, first-of-its-kind class action settlement against a private employer who unlawfully denied hundreds of religious exemption requests to COVID-19 shots. 

…As part of the settlement agreement, NorthShore will also change its unlawful “no religious accommodations” policy to make it consistent with the law, and to provide religious accommodations in every position across its numerous facilities. No position in any NorthShore facility will be considered off limits to unvaccinated employees with approved religious exemptions. 

In addition, employees who were terminated because of their religious refusal of the COVID shots will be eligible for rehire if they apply within 90 days of final settlement approval by the court, and they will retain their previous seniority level.

Ultimately, religious freedom means freedom to act on your own conscience. This is not just a freedom for established religions or for people who have a note from their priest. It is an unalienable right of all people and no one shall infringe it. All freedom-loving people should be delighted with this decision. I hope we see many more like it. ABN

CANADA: Alberta appeal court sets aside contempt sanctions against Pastor Artur Pawlowski, his brother and cafe owner

On Friday, the appeals court set aside the speech provisions included in all three orders and set aside the sanctions against Scott and the contempt findings against both Pawlowskis, which resulted in the sanctions also falling.

The appeal court agreed with the argument that the order did not apply to the Pawlowskis and didn’t sufficiently capture what they were doing in May 2021.

Mexican President Intervenes With Biden, Renews Asylum Offer For Julian Assange

On Monday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he delivered a letter to President Biden last week where he pleaded for the US not to prosecute Julian Assange and renewed an offer to grant asylum to the WikiLeaks founder.

Lopez Obrador said he explained in the letter that Assange “did not cause anyone’s death, did not violate any human rights and that he exercised his freedom, and that arresting him would mean a permanent affront to freedom of expression.”

Video exposing gross imbalance of J6 prosecutions and judgements; Dr Simone Gold is a prime example of this

Originally tweeted by Eric Metaxas (@ericmetaxas) on June 22, 2022.

The highly exaggerated and unbalanced J6 statist narrative is an example of mass mind-control. Similar distortions surrounding fictional white supremacy constitute another major example. By frightening the citizenry and tarring any move by them against official stories, totalitarian elements are greatly strengthened while truth, justice, and the American way are greatly weakened.

Court strikes down Maine’s ban on using public funds at religious schools

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that Maine violated the Constitution when it refused to make public funding available for students to attend schools that provide religious instruction. The opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts was a broad ruling, making clear that when state and local governments choose to subsidize private schools, they must allow families to use taxpayer funds to pay for religious schools.

The decision was the latest in a series of cases in recent years in which the court has sided with parents and religious institutions challenging state policies that barred them from receiving education-related funds that were available for secular, but not religious, recipients.

One of our most valuable unalienable rights is freedom of religion, or stated more broadly freedom of conscience. ABN

Supreme Court Rules State and Local Government Cannot Ban Faith-Based Schools from Public Funding

A major win for parents and school choice today in a 6-3 decision from the Supreme Court [pdf Ruling Here].  The high court ruled that Maine violated the Constitution by refusing to make public funds available for students to attend faith-based schools.  The ruling is broad and makes it clear when any state and/or local government choose to subsidize private schools or provide vouchers for school choice, they must allow families pay for religious schools.

Teachers’ unions, left-wing indoctrination institutions and the media are not happy with the Supreme Court decision.  The ruling now makes it possible for state or local school vouchers to be used for private, faith-based schools.  Those schools also have religious exemptions on the types of material and educators they allow in their education programs.

In the bigger picture the court has again affirmed ‘freedom of religion‘ not ‘freedom from religion‘.  Parents who wish their children to receive a moral and virtuous education should not be blocked by state and local politicians who promote sexualization of children, immoral conduct and alternative lifestyles for kids.  SCOTUS BLOG has background details including the dissent:

More of this, please. Much more of this. Diversity of thought and the freedom to speak our minds is our American cultural and legal heritage. There is no better way to run a society. We should all be proud of our heritage and strive to fully understand the value of it. Also, enjoy it! It is wonderful to be open-minded and unabashedly converse with others who are similarly not afraid to speak their minds. ABN

Trojan Horse: Fake Conservatives Show Support For Red Flag Gun Laws

A handful of Republican senators have recently come out in favor of bipartisan gun control legislation that would strengthen or nationalize Red Flag laws.  Proven RINOs Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney lead the group in calls for a “compromise” with anti-gun Democrats after citing a poll during a GOP meeting which suggests over 79% of gun owning households support using Red Flag measures.
