Advisory: Be careful of what you read on social media. The algorithms used by these platforms have no regard for Biblical truth. They target your emotions to keep you engaged on their site so their advertisers can drop more ads. These platforms exist to enrich their stockholders. Consider God’s promise to Believers in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
The City of Los Angeles has started enforcement of its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for indoor businesses.
The mandate, also named SafePassLA, requires all people eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, including kids 12 and above, to show photo ID and proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when entering indoor restaurants, gyms, entertainment facilities, personal care establishments, and some city buildings.
From Monday, inspectors from the Department of Building and Safety, and authorized agents, started enforcing the ordinance.
Business owners who violate the mandate will receive a warning for the first violation, a $1,000 fine for a second violation, and a $2,000 fine for a third violation. Fines are capped at $5,000 for four or more violations.
The mandate allows for medical or religious exemptions.
“A patron must provide the covered location with a verbal self-attestation to qualify for the exemption,” the city said on its website. The patrons should be directed to use an outdoor area. “If an outdoor area is not available, the patron may be permitted to use an indoor area by providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before entry and photo identification.”
The mandate doesn’t apply to business employees.
Patrons are required to wear masks when they’re not actively eating or drinking, even they’re fully vaccinated. The city said that’s because the mandate does not modify any health orders issued by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
Some business owners have expressed concerned that the mandate will affect their businesses.
Restaurateurs in New York City told The Epoch Times last month that business went down 40 to 60 percent due to the city’s vaccine mandate. New York City enacted a similar requirement in August and started enforcing the rule on Sept. 13.
Milbet Del Cid, owner of Amalia’s, a Guatemalan restaurant in Los Angeles, told Los Angeles Times that criticism poured in on social media earlier this month when she alerted her clients that she would soon be asking them to show proof of vaccination.
“If you’re obligated to ask,” one customer wrote in response, “then we won’t eat there anymore, so there.”
Beginning Nov. 4, Los Angeles County, where the City of Los Angeles is located, also issued a similar but less expansive mandate, mainly focused on adult-oriented businesses providing alcohol.
The city is also requiring proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours to participate in outdoor events with 5,000 more people. This is stricter than the county mandate, which applies to outdoor events with 10,000 or more people.
it’s clear that at this stage, Los Angeles is a city filled with people who don’t question what they’re told under any circumstances. People have laid their lives down to ensure that our basic human rights are not violated. It seems that these people cant survive without a tyrannical government dictating their personal choices. All it takes is some perspective to understand that the unvaccinated have a lack of trust in the integrity of our current administration, and the integrity of those who have benefitted the most from the COVID-19 pandemic. Those who are outspoken about mandated vaccinations are among the most deluded. Proud citizens of this country are willing and able to defend their God given rights at a moments notice and the elite should take heed to our warnings.

Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects people from discrimination who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. But not only them. It also protects people who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs but do not belong to a traditional, organized religion. Religion is broadly defined under Title VII. A religious belief does not require a belief in God or any deity. A sincerely held religious belief can be one held by only a single person. It also requires an employer to accommodate an employee’s sincerely held religious beliefs, practices and observances unless an accommodation would cause undue hardship.
The question of whether an individual’s belief is acceptable and sincerely held is an issue of an individual’s credibility. If the employee requesting exemption isn’t credible they’ll be subject to provide additional information pertaining to their religious beliefs. Such as a statement discussing the nature and tenets of his or her asserted beliefs and information about when, where, and how they follow the practice or belief. In some instances, you may need to site evidence in religious text that validates your claim to religious exemption. As terrible as this is, you’re going to have to fight for your rights in this situation.
“My explanation was that ‘Human life is sacred. The Bible tells you that your body is a temple. The vaccine is made from aborted fetuses. The mandate is directly affecting my religious beliefs.’ And that’s it,” said Brittany Watson, a nurse who received a religious exemption from the health system she works for in Virginia.
Company leaders can turn down requests that would pose an “undue hardship” on the business or other staff members, wrote legal scholar Doug Laycock for The Conversation last month. Undue hardship includes anything more than a minimal expense to accommodate for the individual requesting religious exemption.
Military service members are having a much tougher time attaining approvals to their religious exemptions. Some have left their homes at eighteen as Christians, but felt uncomfortable putting it on their paperwork upon enlistment. So according to paperwork, their religious beliefs aren’t on file. This would require additional details to basically prove to uncle sam that you worship anything other than him.
The University of Pennsylvania religious exemption form is as invasive as it gets however. It begins by asking the employee to describe the sincerely held religious belief their receipt of COVID-19 vaccination. It then goes on to ask whether this religious belief has changed over time and, if so, to explain how it changed, when it changed and why it changed. The third question asks whether this religious belief prevents the employee from receiving all vaccines or only some vaccines. If the answer is that it prevents the employee from receiving only some vaccines, the form asks the employee to specify which vaccines they cannot receive and what is different about them.
Upon approval of religious exemption, i’d like to say congratulations on behalf of everyone who sees the tyranny for what it is. Also if you’re denied religious exemption, you may be subject to future compensation. It would be of great benefit to consider reaching out to an employment lawyer. Make sure to document as much as you can pertaining to the request/denial of religious exemption in the workplace.
I’d like to add that America became completely unrecognizable in the blink of an eye after Biden got hold of it. 71% of the population agree that we’re not headed on the right path right now. So go through the proper channels, and get fired the correct way. Don’t just quit your job, that would be like shooting yourself in the foot considering you didn’t give them the chance to approve or deny your request for religious exemption.
The action taken by Biden is a clear attack on conservative America. It simply won’t be ignored, the government will most likely be forking over copious amounts of compensation to the public alongside his trillion dollar infrastructure bill. We’re supposed to be persecuted as Christians, this should thicken our skin a bit and prepare us for what is to come in the future. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
