NY JUDGE RULES: NO MANDATES WITHOUT RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS

Father, thank You for the judge's ruling. May it set a precedent for freedom across all other cases like it.

A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that New York state cannot impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on healthcare workers without allowing their employers to consider religious exemption requests.

U.S. District Judge David Hurd in Albany, New York, ruled that the state’s workplace vaccination requirement conflicted with healthcare workers’ federally protected right to seek religious accommodations from their employers…

Vaccines have become highly politicized in the United States, where only 66% of Americans are vaccinated…

Seventeen healthcare workers opposed to the mandate sued, saying the requirement violated their rights under the U.S. Constitution and a federal civil rights law requiring employers to reasonably accommodate employees’ religious beliefs.

Hurd agreed, saying the state’s order “clearly” conflicted with their right to seek religious accommodations…

New York Governor Kathy Hochul…vowed in a statement to fight the decision, saying her “responsibility…is to protect the people of this state, and requiring health care workers to get vaccinated accomplishes that.”…

Praise God in the comments below for this answered prayer!

  1. Thank you Lord for righting this wrong. I thank you that you and you alone save lives. You know the purpose for this vaccine and it is not good. This vaccine does not prevent the virus and can harm the body severely. Thank you for the protection that you give us. I pray in Jesus name that this mandate is blocked at every turn in every state with every worker that does not want it. I pray for the health care providers as they are being told they have to have this shot. I bind you devil in the name of Jesus. You take your hands off our health care providers, truckers and all people. Lord I praise you for helping us and hearing our prayers. Your Word is top priority in our lives. We thank you and praise you. Protect our doctors and nurses and all others. I plead the blood of Jesus over them and all people who are standing up for our right to take this or not. Praise you Lord and I give you all Glory, Honor and Praise.

  2. FATHER GOD thank YOU for this Judge that went by the Constitution for this ruling to protect the people’s religious constitutional rights. Just like YOU moved Cuomo out of office, please move this new evil Governor out quickly! Please inspire YOUR people to rise up against tyranny in JESUS Name! Joe Biden HATES America! He ignores the Constitution and our rights! He has broken many U. S. laws on the books. He allows every country’s crooks, gangs, child molesters and drug smugglers to cross our border into our country! None of which is tested for covid or vaccinated unless they just started doing that. The illegals are then allowed to travel where ever they want into our country. None of the illegals are under a vaccine mandate! I can only pray the prayers for the biden administration that David prayed for his enemies: Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them. For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul. Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall. (Psalm 35) Let them repent after YOU have removed all of them from the stolen, illegitimate power! In JESUS Name! Amen!

  3. Thank the LORD JESUS, HE hears our prayers. Christains are at war with demonic beings. This to include the humans that choose to follow along with Satan’s plane.
    When government decides that they can take the constitutional right’s from American’s they better guess again.
    Especially Religious rights that include JESUS.
    Prayers are answered this day and to all, keep the faith and JESUS in your heart, mind and soul.
    Put the armour of GOD on and JESUS will see you through. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

  4. the general trend ,or ,thread of thougt,that is running through this battle on our side is- and ,when i use the term,’our side’,that includes any conservative voices,even non chrisitian,as half the church in America copped out of the battle against tyranny-so that thread is to use the term vaccine,still,and thats the first problem, and ,more and more,which is as usual;,instead of continuing to completely stand against this evil in its ungodly entirety, we slowly adopt the weaponized language of their thinking, which is ,”as long as you have the (vax) you’re ok”,, which is what this article is saying indirectly. It is yet another ,..and seemingly inevitable, slow slide into the culture’s manipulation of Christian thought ,into what is convenient for them…
    SO- once again, let it be stated, the vaccine, first of all, is not a vaccine. None of them are.
    they are experimental gene formulas. They alter human DNA in irreversible and gruesome ungodly ways. They are deadly. They DO NOT STOP ANY VIRUS.. the victims that are being chemically assaulted get sick with any and all various strains of whatever current trend of “virus’ is now being debuted.. and, the carriers of the experimental gene formula “SHED” onto anyone in their environment- the very unhealthy and ungodly contents of said experimental gene formula onto those unfortunates in their environment, creating sickness in those persons as well,.. just as the oligarchs originally planned.

    apparently the trend of being “nice”,so deeply entrenched into Christian current thought,faces a long slow battle of excavation before we become the warriors that The Lord intended us to be

    1. You are absolutely correct, Herb!
      The vaccine itself is the first problem, at least in this part of the battle. It is an evil, ungodly product whose purpose is not to protect and heal, but to make money, as far as I can see.
      Which just convicted me that, surely, some mutual funds that benefit me very likely contain Big Pharma stock – and I need to remove them!
      Thank you, Herb, for letting the Holy Spirit use you to convict me that I am an integral part of that vaccine problem because, indeed, the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil!
      We cannot serve God and mammon.
      But, thank God, when I confess my divided heart, He forgives me and cleanses me of all unrighteousness, and renews me – again. What a Savior! His steadfast love really does endure forever.

  5. Thank you, Father God, for this courageous judge to allow religious exemptions for these unlawful and consequential mandates. I pray other judges will follow his lead to protect individual rights. Thank you, Lord, for your favor in this matter.

    May this be the case in ALL the states. Thank you for answering this prayer in this positive way. And for protecting the freedom of choice in this way💕

  10. Dear Lord, I thank You tremendously for this answered prayer and for this rule of no vaccine mandates without religious exemptions. I give You glory and praise You. I also thank You for the U.S. Constitution that is still protecting us. Again, thank You for Your mercy and for hearing the cries of Your children and for this answered prayer and victory! In Jesus Name and Authority, Amen.

  11. Any ruling protecting our freedoms in today’s political climate is praiseworthy. Thank You for Justice Hurd, and his willingness to take a stand for religious freedom! Undoubtedly, there is going to be liberal/radical pushback. The governor of N.Y. can fight it all day long, but what is right , is right. Lord Jesus, we thank You for this judicial decision in N.Y. state. We thank you for the vision and integrity that You have given to this Justice to make this decision. Please protect him and his family, and please, by your great mercy, do not let the evil liberals overturn this decision. In Jesus’ name.

  12. Thank you Lord for answering our prayers. Lord thank you for tirning the heart of the Judge. I pray for the Governor of New York that God give her wisdom and that the health care workers are favored by God with the lawsuit. I pray that as the Governor fight the dicision of the Judge that justice will prevail in the favor of the health care workers.
    I declare that they will not lose their jobs and the US constitution will take authority for the people.
    We are protected by the consitution of the U S.
    Miss Governor No Mandates we need healthcare workers to take care of thd sick. Lord I pray for justice and health care workers are favored and essential. I go to the courts of heaven and I plead this case before the Great Judge. God receive my requests and I thank you in advance for all answered prayers.Amen

  13. Praying & believing Jesus has made a way for us! He will keep us encouraged in Him as we continue to seek Him for our country that every wrong will be made right. As He starts in our families & our churches we will be that driving force that keeps Jesus Lord over America 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸His will be done!

  14. One small victory at a time. Thank God for answering prayers. God can overturn every one of their decisions. God can transform the minds of the governors and the politicians. God bless those who stand for the truth and uphold our religious freedoms and our constitutional rights as citizens of the great country.

  15. Father thank You for hearing the cries of Your children and protecting us from tyrannical and misguided leadership. You are faithful and good. Thank You for D.J. David Hurd and moving his heart towards the good of the people, for standing on constitutional rights and not bowing the knee to the dictates of this governmental leadership. Father , we know we do not wrestle with flesh and blood , but spiritual wickedness in the heavenly realms, so to that end Gather, we stand in the gap and announce to these wicked spirits the Jesus has already won, they have been defeated and we bind the spirit of deception and control that is operating in Gov. Kathy Hochel in Jesus name and through the power of His blood🙌🙌🙌 Release her and set her free!! We release angels to minister truth and life to her, Father the gods of this world has blinded her to Truth, but You have called us to be ministers of reconciliation, we speak Wisdom and revelation over Gov. Hochel. Proverbs 11:14 Tells us that people lose their way without wise leader ship but a nation succeeds an stands in victory when it has many good counselors to guide it.
    Father I pray for many good counselors to speak into governor Hochels ears, counselors who speak truth and righteousness, counselors that will direct her path and make her way successful. Father your desire is for good governance, I pray good governance over the state of New York in Jesus name.
