Liberty Counsel sent out an email alerting Americans to what is happening in Washington State. Gov. Jay Inslee recently released new orders for churches, which state that churches are limited to 25 percent capacity — but if the church segregates worshippers based on COVID vaccination status, he’ll allow them up to 50 percent capacity.

“Such segregation smacks of Gentiles relegated to the outer court of the temple,” wrote Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver. “James, the brother of Jesus, warns us about saying to someone who enters your assembly, ‘You sit here in a good place’ because of the person’s apparent status and to another, ‘You stand over there.’ Have you ‘not then made distinctions among yourselves?’ (James 2:3).

“This is offensive. We must never accept vaccine passports.”

As reported, the CDC VAERS reports are concerning:

(These numbers reveal increases in the last week)
Reported adverse reactions: 192,954 to 227,805
Deaths: 4,057 to 4,201
Hospital visits: 11,572 to 12,625
Office visits: 32,803 to 39,153
Urgent Care: 25,063 to 29,707
Severe allergic reactions: 9,175 to 10,799
Heart attacks: 1,262 to 1,390
Blood clots: 939 to 1,065
Bell’s palsy: 1,112 to 1,273
Miscarriages: 275 to 328

In the last 15 years, all reported deaths show a VAERS average of 108 per year for a total of 1,620. However, in five months the reported deaths after the COVID shot is 4,201.

“Whatever your decision, it must be yours and yours alone,” Staver wrote. “It is unthinkable for a state to segregate based on the COVID shots — which is still in the experimental and investigational phase. We must build a firewall of freedom at the state level.”

Oregon, for what it’s worth, mandates worshippers present a paper or digital vaccine passport if they do not wear a mask.

“If they do not present a vaccine passport, they must wear a mask,” Staver wrote. “And this applies to the pastor preaching from the pulpit.”
