"We Cannot Believe This Is Happening"

Oct 8, 2021

One Marine had an active role commemorating the 11 Marines killed in the explosion during the Afghanistan withdrawal. Between regular work and his extra funeral-related duties, he was forced repeatedly to reschedule his meeting with a chaplain about his COVID jab exemption.

When they finally met, the chaplain told Justin* there was a certain form he must fill out to ask for a religious exemption. However, no one would provide the “necessary” form.

Before the deadline to apply, the chaplain discouraged Justin from even trying. He told this Marine there was a high chance it would not be approved, and it would be like trying to climb a “very steep hill.”

Justin wanted a career in the Marine Corps, but this mandate is forcing this godly young man out and he will lose his dream.

Justin’s mom asked my team, “Help us! We don't know what we can do. We don't know what our recourse is. We cannot believe this is happening.”

Give to LCA today to help stop this injustice.

Our team is being inundated with requests from military members:

“Please help. I’m in the Marine Corps. I’m supposed to be done in March, but I’m being told I have until tomorrow to get the vaccine.”

Another Marine has proof of natural COVID antibodies. He has given more than 18 years of his life to active duty. But he said:

I was given a direct order to take a vaccine that is not available on base at this time. I was then informed that the Pfizer vaccine ... is interchangeable and I am ordered to take whichever one is available or face disciplinary action. … I have been denied leave for not being vaccinated. … No marine is authorized leave (even local leave) unless they have at least 1 shot towards being vaccinated.

Can you even imagine? They serve in one of the most stressful occupations in the world. Now these heroes face dishonorable discharge if they do not get the COVID shots.

Our military is being attacked from the inside and the outside, since federal civilian contractors who provide everything to the military are under the same decree. Private defense contractors affect the production of everything they need—from helmets to nuclear ships and from shoes to cybersecurity.

In addition to helping tens of thousands of people who face these mandates, Liberty Counsel Action is assisting in a federal class action lawsuit providing critical information and resources to complete this massive undertaking that will be filed early next week.

By supporting LCA, you help us fight for the Defenders of Freedom. We need YOUR HELP to STOP THESE SHOT MANDATES!

Many have religious objections to the aborted fetal cell lines used to create, test or develop these shots. Moreover, the shots are neither safe nor effective.

“M.H.” was perfectly healthy before the jab and often would go biking for 15 miles at a time.

However, M.H. said, “My immediate reactions included tingling/numbing lips, itchy/hives on jab arm, tightening throat and racing heart. The next day, I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach, and I had a headache. The severe stomach pain lasted about a week.”

“About 10 days after, I started having feelings of electricity running through my body from head to toe (also like a brain zapping), vertigo and tinnitus. My BP/HR [blood pressure and heart rate] were spiking and dropping. I then started having twitching/tingling in legs, arms/hands, face, head, lips and throat. My glands swelled in my armpit on jab side, as well as neck and collarbone.”

Four months after receiving the shot, M.H. continues to have reactions that include "tinnitus and some tingling and twitching” muscles. After the shot, M.H. could barely bike a single mile.

These shots MUST not be mandatory. According to federal law, each person has the “option to accept or refuse” the shots.

We are overwhelmed with the volume and the intense emotions of the tens of thousands of people who reach out to us. HELP US HELP THEM. DOUBLE your gift with our Challenge Grant. Help stop this injustice.
