Episode 56

Justin Butterfield from First Liberty Institute talks about a major case involving Navy SEALS and the COVID vaccine mandate.

Justin Butterfield is Deputy General Counsel with First Liberty Institute, a legal defense organization that protects the First Amendment rights of religious liberty. One of their biggest cases to date is currently making its way through the US federal court system as a group of Navy SEALS is suing after years of their religious objections to certain medical procedures have been denied, apparently as a matter of policy. Now, many of them are facing an ultimatum: submit, or lose your rank, your benefits, and even the money you’ve already been paid. Justing discusses the latest on the case and what the next steps could be.
