Rev. Robert Jeffress, the pastor at the SBC Megachurch First Baptist Dallas, told the Associated Press in an email that he and his staff “are neither offering nor encouraging members to seek religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates” as demand from church-going folk surges for a religious exemption increases. Voicing his opinion that there is no biblical reason to not get one, he further explained:
There is no credible religious argument against the vaccines…Christians who are troubled by the use of a fetal cell line for the testing of the vaccines would also have to abstain from the use of Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Ibuprofen, and other products that used the same cell line if they are sincere in their objection.
Robert has consistently urged his congregation to get vaccinated so they can safely worship, comparing the vaccination to a prolife position on Fox News a few months ago, where he said:
We talk about life inside the womb being a gift from God. Well, life outside the womb is a gift from God, too.
