Members of Tennessee Stands will support a statewide bill to secure religious exemptions for vaccines.
Tennessee Stands spokesman Gary Humble announced this in a YouTube video.
“Guess what I bet a lot of you don’t know? Right now, under Tennessee law, in the case of an epidemic or the immediate threat of an epidemic you lose your religious exemptions to vaccines. Your employer in the state of Tennessee has the legal right to force you to get a vaccine or you lose your job,” Humble said in the video.
“When it’s a risk to the safety or the public health or whatever it is termed. And in schools, as a parent, where you have a religious exemption for your children to not have vaccines you lose those in the case of an epidemic or the threat of an epidemic. It’s crazy. So we aim to fix that.”
Humble told The Tennessee Star that State. Sen. Mark Pody (R-Lebanon) will carry the bill in the Senate, Humble sent what he said was a link to the bill, available on the Tennessee General Assembly’s website.
As The Star reported last week, Tennessee Stands, based out of Williamson County, announced other new initiatives, including new partnerships and a new initiative to recruit right-leaning candidates for county commission and school board seats across the state.
“We are so excited to partner with groups in Knoxville and Johnson City to now form the Tennessee Stands – Knoxville Coalition and the Tennessee Stands – Tri-Cities Coalition,” Humble said in a press release.
“This is going to be awesome and there is so much great work that we can do together.”
“[The year] 2022 is staring us in the face. It’s coming fast. We are looking to support God-fearing, Constitution-loving, liberty-loving conservative candidates across the state in our county commission boards and our school board races. These local elections are critical to securing the liberties that you and I enjoy every day, so we want to work with those candidates, and we want to help them financially. We should help them with their campaigns. We want to help them be effective in their local communities and in winning those races. We need to do this work.”
