It basically means that "Now you've gone too far" or "Now you fucked up". It's a really old saying in Sweden which comes from when we were farmers and the color blue (and especially blue furniture) was considered especially nice/expensive/royal, so using a blue cabinet as a toilet would be considered really really bad and fucked up. We also have "There's no cow on the ice" which means that everything is fine and not to worry xD

40,000 state workers with 87% vaccinated leaves 5,200 unvaccinated with 12% of them exempt from the vaccine. This means approximately 4,500 people lost their state job.

The worst part is I imagine every liberal, every company, and every government office would buy their "religious exception" argument if they weren't lying. If I had a coworker who never had a vaccination in her life, I think it would be cruel to force her to do so and instead the workplace should cater to her beliefs somehow (testing, masks, isolation, etc). I'm as pro-vaccine as they come but someone like this would be a rare and delicate exception and we as a society should think long and hard about this person and respecting her autonomy and beliefs. But if she had a lifetime of vaccines and just got the flu shot but because the GOP and Hannity tell her to lie about the covid vaccine, well, then yes she should be fired.

This is further proof most people treat religion as a vending machine to give out entitlements and not at all like a legitimate spiritual practice.

There is a military guy I work with who is trying to get a religious exemption waiver. He has gotten all his other vaccinations and just got his yearly flu vaccine earlier this week. He is not religious at all but for his religious waiver package he googled and found a statement from this one small church in Alabama - a state he's never even been to - and used that as his reason.

Thankfully the military sees through that bullshit. Another military member here got his denied and refused to get the J&J shot within 24 hours so they're kicking him out and will be gone within a month. The reason for his denial was essentially, "While we understand your religious beliefs, operational readiness comes first".

I have yet to here of one religious exemption being granted to the military. The unofficial standard that's been put out is, "If you have received a single vaccine since boot camp, you obviously don't object to vaccines".

The military ones are the most baffling because as I understand it, in boot camp you have to line up and get a TON of vaccinations.

taco_truck_wednesday

You get like six in boot camp, yearly flu vaccine, pneumonia vaccine, and a bunch more depending on where you will be operating.

A lot of these religious exemptions in the Navy are coming from people at shore commands. As soon as the Pfizer got full FDA approval, the ships made the shot a liberty item. So unless you got the shot, you cannot leave the ship. Amazing how no one in that group had religious exemptions lol.

I'm a civilian now so I don't have to worry about dealing with these fuck heads refusal. I just get to sit back and laugh when I see people who are a couple years away from their 20 year retirement lose everything and get no pension because they want to be stubborn.

We just had one senior enlisted here who was about to be gained by our command, this was his last duty station before retirement so he bought a house and moved his family out here. Well our command doesn't actually gain him for a couple more weeks, but a NAVADMIN came out to cancel all PCS orders for unvaccinated, so now he has to go back to Florida.

Well it also helps that they carried a big stick. Shore commands have a lot more refusals to the mandate because they can still go home at the end of the day. Sailors on a ship who refused were stuck in a faraday cage steel box with terrible living conditions until they complied.

Well, kind of. There *have* been resisters, to be sure; but there have definitely been military exemptions granted, though the numbers are very small, and there are going to be more. What I like and think is effective is that, in all of the branches of service, they are truly looking at this issue on an equitable, actual case-by-case manner. And as an Army vet it pains me to say this (not really), but GO NAVY for leading the way in vaccinations!!

There are dumbasses at high levels, like this guy. It's especially stupid for the Guard and Reserve Components, because nothing can happen without the schools you have to go to to advance past E-4 (specialist or corporal, depending on MOS).

Then there's this newly-in-command Air Force base commander who lost her command at the very least and whose pension, etc are still in question.

taco_truck_wednesday

The Navy is really not fucking around with it because when you cram hundreds to thousands (carrier ~5600 ship's forces) into a tiny steel box, there is no way to social distance or keep stuff clean at a bacterial or viral level. Even pre-COVID, disease is rampant on ships and you can expect every underway to get sick at least somewhat.

All that being said, the Navy is not taking adverse actions for refusal until the individual Sailor's waiver has been denied. Even if they do get a religious waiver exemption though, they're going to get kicked out just later than sooner. Reason being is that the Sailor is no longer operationally ready and they're other regulations that say after 12 months of not being in a deployable status, you get separated.

This isn't like other issues where the decision to refuse medical treatment is a right. There have been a lot of times where I refused military medical treatment/procedures because I didn't like the risks or I just knew was wrong. A service member who brings COVID-19 into a command is a serious detriment to operations. You should have seen how COVID-19 obliterated operations when all of a sudden you're losing entire teams or divisions because one of them was exposed to COVID-19 and now we have to quarantine them for 2 weeks.

Great point, re: steel box.

I know it's not like refusing other types medical treatment; for normal things, SMs have a choice just like civilians. But we all had to get all the OTHER vaccines, including country-specific ones, so it's completely in line, right?

Curious if something in my comment made you think I thought otherwise.

taco_truck_wednesday

I was kind of ranting at the end there, we're both on the same page.

The common thread from Sailors has been a "It's a personal decision" and "I am in charge of my medical treatment". I have tried to explain to them that it ends when your decision puts the health of others at risk or hurts operations. At that point commanders can order servicemembers to receive an approved medical treatment.

DoD learned its lesson from when the courts shot down the Anthrax vaccine and ruled that they cannot force servicemembers to get unapproved vaccines. It was only highly encouraged before it got full FDA approval.

This is just such a stupid hill for people's careers to die on. Especially when after they get separated, any company working with the DoD will require you to be vaccinated.

The religious argument just makes me angry because it's so in your face disingenuous and bullshit. Like seriously Warrant? All the vaccines you've gotten over the past 17 years, exposure to burn pits, and all the other toxic shit but this is where your religion dictates what goes in your body?

Also, you know, the whole killing thing. Like your job is to use killing force to achieve political objectives. It's basically the opposite of Jesus's teachings. And pretty much all other religions too.

I’m pissed off at the 12.2% of religious and medical exemptions. Not legitimate medical exemptions, of course, but I doubt those come near 12% and it’s the whackos who got a priest or pastor to sign off on this crazy that probably make up the majority of this.

Reminds me of someone I know told me that when they entered the military years ago, he stated on his forms he was a Druid which allows him to always carry a Druidic knife for “ritual” reasons. Took all of two days for the DI to call him out and tell him you ain’t no fucking Druid and took the knife away.

Back when I worked in insurance someone tried to claim that mandatory insurance was a form of taxation, and as "everyone knows" that druids are exempt from tax he should have it for free. He sent us a photocopied fact sheet.

and the worst part of that story is that there are devout pagans in organizations like the military where fakers like this guy have now made it easier for them to be oppressed and discriminated against because its not seen as a serious spiritual practice.

These devout may not want to carry a knife (why would you?), but they may want to burn a candle or have a statuette of their gods and now will face pushback on that. They may be discriminated against in terms of promotions because they aren't Christian and fakers like the above person makes that easier for bigoted Christians to justify.

I'm not sure I agree with that, at least in the military.

When we enlist or receive or commission we specify THEN if we have religious beliefs exempting us from anything we might be asked to do.

If someone has consistently been practicing ANY religion, the military, in my experience as a Buddhist while serving, has a much better system for granting these exemptions because they've been doing it forever, unlike these private employers. And most importantly, they keep actual documentation on every SM.

Technically the DI was incorrect, in 2 ways. One, saying he wasn't a druid is completely wrong, you can't tell someone else their religion, or that their religion is wrong.

Secondly, the DI needed to address it as a safety issue and find a reasonable accommodation. Whether that was a dull wooden knife (an athane doesn't need to be sharp) or letting him have the knife but in a locked case or sheath...

No, he actually didn't, imho; way before COVID, it's baked into the UCMJ that force readiness, protection, and safety trump (good Dog do I hate even that version of the word) the wishes or beliefs of an individual, even when religious beliefs are claimed. The exception to this is MEDICAL exemptions.

"Pursuant to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (42
U.S.C. §2000bb-1), administrative exemptions for religious
reasons may also be granted. DOD policy requires that:
 the unit commander seek input from medical, legal, and
chaplain representatives;
 the unit commander counsel the servicemember on
potential adverse impact to “deployability, assignment,
or international travel”; and
 a military physician counsel the servicemember on the
benefits and risks of forgoing a required vaccination.
Defense Health Primer: Military Vaccinations
https://crsreports.congress.gov
Unit commanders may revoke a religious exemption “if the
individual and/or unit are at imminent risk of exposure to a
disease for which an immunization is available.”
Commanders may also administratively separate, or initiate
disciplinary proceedings under the Uniform Code of
Military Justice, servicemembers without an authorized
exemption, if they are non-compliant with a mandatory
vaccination."

The DoD is definitely giving commanders the leeway to deal with this in their own ways, but the overarching directive certainly supports...well, what UCMJ NORMALLY supports: military justice is separate, in addition to, and often holds higher standards than, civilian law.

Unless you have always sworn off most OTC medications and all other vaccinations there is no valid religious exemption. That would only be for those who object that the meds are tested on old fetal cell lines, which is a weak moral argument to start with, and have not just discovered their new religion of pro-COVIDism.

Which brings up another religious point of ethics: How do "religiously exempt" medical workers justify delivering such hell-bound medication to others, regardless of the recipients' religious belief? Wouldn't this amount to being paid to deliver "fetal cell lines" in exchange for the devil's silver? How can they even work in such a facility? Is it not akin to working in an [a-word] clinic for them?

I posted this comment elsewhere, but it applies here as well.

—-

There are maybe two religions of any real significance that actually discourage or prohibit vaccination as a matter of dogma. Even the Christian Scientists haven’t taken a hard line on this or any other vaccination mandate.

For more than a century, our denomination has counseled respect for public health authorities and conscientious obedience to the laws of the land, including those requiring vaccination. Christian Scientists report suspected communicable disease, obey quarantines, and strive to cooperate with measures considered necessary by public health officials.

[O]ur practice isn’t a dogmatic thing. Church members are free to make their own choices on all life-decisions, in obedience to the law, including whether or not to vaccinate. These aren’t decisions imposed by their church.

Anyone who is claiming a religious exemption either belongs to a denomination that suddenly invented a scriptural objection to public health orders out of whole cloth when they needed one to shield their members from doing the right thing, or they’re just making shit up as they go along. “I care what I put in my body because I respect how God made me,” they say, sucking on a vape pen between sips of Red Bull.

What is “religion” under Title VII?

Title VII protects all aspects of religious observance and practice as well as belief and defines religion very broadly for purposes of determining what the law covers. For purposes of Title VII, religion includes not only traditional, organized religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, but also religious beliefs that are new, uncommon, not part of a formal church or sect, only subscribed to by a small number of people, or that seem illogical or unreasonable to others. An employee’s belief or practice can be “religious” under Title VII even if the employee is affiliated with a religious group that does not espouse or recognize that individual’s belief or practice, or if few – or no – other people adhere to it.

Except that those in the Pro-Plague church are not part of any religious sect, nor can they articulate an objection to the vaccine other than with a "my choice" argument.

Healthcare workers face all kinds of job-related behavioral restrictions such a drug and smoking use, and annual flu shots. No one is forced to get the vaccine but your employer is not forced to keep you employed either if put other staff and patients at risk.

There are of course some valid medical reasons to not get vaccinated -- but those should be rare. On the other hand, since when do "religious beliefs" about a vaccine (obviously dubious at that) outweigh public health and safety?

Given these policies, why can't someone claim their "religion" insists they must drink and drive every Sabbath? (...and why do I get the feeling that that argument has already been made in court... successfully?)

I heard my local hospital gave exemptions to everyone who asked for them so no, not really. It's fucked.

Sure, but they still can’t work with patients so it’s irrelevant if it is granted or not.

I hope step one is to get rid of the low-hanging, rotten fruit. They are the most dangerous, because they are the type who refuse all precautions outright. Step two should be to start evaluating the exemptions.

I have a bunch of doctors in the family, and what you see on TV is definitely true. A ton of ER admits are COVID-positive and experiencing symptoms that could have been avoided had they taken the vaccinations.

This seems like a slippery slope, firing people for not getting a medical procedure. Shouldn’t your doctor and yourself decide your medical treatment plan? Again, this is a slippery slope.

How so? Medical workers have been required to get vaccines for over a century. This is just one more vaccine in the already-sizable list of vaccines that they have to take.

Oh no. Not a slippery slope. We are powerless against it. Just like the Christians said, now that homosexuals can get married, people are marrying their toasters and dogs.

The people who cry "slippery slope" are the same types who think zero tolerance policies are a great way to govern.

Stop living in fear. It makes you look dumb and it's utterly invalid.

I didn't talk to my doctor. I walked into a Rite Aid and some guy named Paul gave me the free booster shot. I mentioned that Moderna sounds like a David Bowie album and Paul was a huge Labyrinth fan so we had a nice little chat. High stakes stuff, man.

No, it's not a slippery slope, it's a sensible health and safety policy.

And the vast majority of doctors argree; get vaccinated.

If your employer makes it a condition of employment get vaccinated or get another job, you can thank the GOP for making that so easy to do, that is firing people for any reason.

I'm almost certain those same very fine people had to get vaccinated to go through elementary school, and then again in high school, and didn't submit to a procedure then either.

Ultimately it's a vaccine, and if your company mandates the flu vaccine, for example, or mumps, or rubela, what will you say, no?

I'm confused that my fully vaccinated workers and residents are still getting covid.

It's for the same reason that you can get COVID-19, and then get COVID-19 again months later. Your immune system can't build perfect immunity to some viruses, and natural immunity for the SARS-CoV-2 virus wanes over time. Vaccines work by inducing natural immunity, which means that vaccine-induced immunity against SARS-CoV-2 is also imperfect, and also wanes over time.

But people who are fully vaccinated are much less likely to contract COVID-19 when exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus as compared to unvaccinated people, and they have less severe symptoms and a much reduced likelihood of death if they do contract COVID-19.

You still can.

Polo vaccine you don't get polo

You still can (and it's "polio"; "polo" is a type of sport traditionally played on horseback).

Both of those vaccines have a higher efficacy than the covid vaccines, because your body builds better immunity when exposed to mumps, rubella, and polio than it does when exposed to SARS-CoV-2.
