Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) has launched a full-scale legal attack against employers who discriminated against employees who sought religious exemptions from state mandates requiring they get COVID shots.
In Oregon, for example, PJI is suing a number of employers who either denied employees religious exemptions or subjected them to discrimination under the guise of "accommodating" their sincerely held religious beliefs. A number of hospitals throughout the state and Springfield Public Schools in the Eugene area are among them, and Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and equivalent state laws are cited.
PJI President Brad Dacus says many employees who were denied accommodations were ultimately fired for adhering to their religious convictions on the matter.
"We're trying to send a loud signal across America that we're not going to tolerate this kind of continued purging of people of faith from the workplace without holding them accountable," Dacus tells AFN.
Politicians, bureaucrats, and some health officials maintain the shots are safe, effective, and help combat the spread of COVID. Dacus, however, is among the many who do not buy that.
"We know factually that those who have a natural immunity have a stronger protection and are less likely to spread it than those who are vaccinated," he points out. "The death rates, the mortality rates of those who are dying from COVID and were vaccinated is increasing substantially. Legislation signed by President Biden said people do not have to be vaccinated."
So PJI asserts that there is "no logical reason to permit this kind of clear anti-religious purging" that is taking place across America.
"We're not going to stop until the purging comes to an end," Dacus pledges.
