CWN Editor's Note: In a ruling in favor of 35 service members from “the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant branches of Christianity” who lodged religious objections to the Covid vaccine, a federal district court noted that “the Navy is willing to grant exemptions for non-religious reasons. Its mandate includes carveouts for those participating in clinical trials and those with medical contraindications and allergies to vaccines.”
