Understanding Religious Vaccine Exemptions With Lawyer Jenna Ellis

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

There folks, I'm talking to my friend, Jenna, Ellis, she has a podcast with Salem radio. I can't believe it. We get all the good people. You were talking about Southwest Airlines. I want to talk a little bit about religious exemptions. I didn't mention earlier, you're a constitutional legal scholar. You understand these things far better than most of us. Why for example, and this I find bizarre. According to my friend John murak and some others, all of the vaccines were made with fetal cells or tested with fetal with fetal tissue. So you would think the whole Catholic Church would stand against this, but the Pope and many American bishops have said, no, we're fine with this. That doesn't make any sense to me.

The U.S. Supreme Court has done that with the U.S. Constitution. It will take one or two words call it a clause of the constitution, and they'll build a whole doctrine around it, and it becomes something so different than what the text actually says. So in context, our First Amendment which has the free exercise clause in it and the two religion clauses basically in context when it says that the establishment clause is the other one that the government can't establish a religion, but also that we are protected and freely exercising our religion. It's not just about saying I have a right in this country to not have the government not allow me to go to church, but also that the government can not compel me to participate in any sort of event including a vaccine, by the way that goes against my sincerely held religious
