Religious exemptions refused by Godless heathens in Big Media!
The longtime TV reporter from Missouri was fired because she refused to get the vaccine.
Linda Simmons revealed on FB that she had asked for a religious exemption to the vaccine mandate instituted by her station KY3’s parent company, but she was rejected.
“I value the freedom we all have to make our own informed decisions,” Simmons wrote. “I’ve made a big decision and decided not to allow the company that owns KY3, Gray Television, to control my personal health choices. I did not comply with their vaccine mandate after my exemption request was denied.”
“I will miss you all, and I am sad to be leaving this way, but I have confidence that I am doing God’s will for me,” she added. “I trust that He has good plans in store!!”
In her interview, Simmons stated that she had a sinking feeling when she saw she was denied.
“I truly believe God was showing me reasons that I didn’t need to get it,” she explained, according to The Kansas City Star.
Also, Simmons confessed she was stunned when the request was denied.
“I stopped for a little bit and just prayed, “Lord, I need your help,” she said, according to KTTS. “It was kinda shocking. Because, yeah, I was expecting they were going to grant the exemption. Even if I had to keep working remotely, as I was, and wear a mask — fine. I’ll do that. But, no, they didn’t have any accommodation.”
Gray TV staffers shared that the company’s executives discussed C-19 vaccination mandates.
“These individuals UNANIMOUSLY concluded that the increasingly rapid spread of the coronavirus poses an unfair risk to fellow employees and their family members who are not eligible to get vaccinated,” the memo added.
Simmons continued saying that she knows that the pandemic is real and severe, but she questions some of the health recommendations that surround it. She also stated that no one knows what will come next for her in her career.
“I’ve been blessed to tell so many important stories, and I thank all of you who have done me the favor of giving an interview on short notice,” she said in her Facebook post. “We work on quick deadlines in the news business! For all of you who have watched and supported me over the years, thank you so much. Your loyalty and encouragement have meant the world. I’ve always done my best to get both sides of a story, share unbiased reports, and make sure the public has the information it needs about issues here in the Ozarks.”
Millions of Americans are in the same position losing their jobs due to the vaccination mandates.
