WASHINGTON, D.C. – Human Events Daily senior editor Jack Posobiec recently obtained leaked audio from a phone call between a Biden Department of Justice official and White House staff regarding what they perceived as the lack of legitimacy of many individuals who apply for a religious exemption to taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
In a phone conversation between DOJ lawyer Marty Letterman and unnamed members of the Biden Administration, Letterman commented on the use of cells obtained from aborted human fetuses that were used in the research and development of the current COVID-19 vaccines.
With that being the case, Letterman said, he opined that individuals who are using the potential presence of fetal cells in vaccines as a reason to claim a religious exemption from a vaccination mandate are not doing so from a legitimate place of sincerity.
“For instance in the New York case that’s currently going on against the State of New York, the Thomas More Society is representing a bunch of doctors and nurses who claim that they would sin gravely in cooperation with the evil of abortion,” Letterman says in the phone recording. “How would they be doing so? The claim is that all three of the current vaccines, either have fetal cells that were obtained by abortions in the vaccine itself, or in the case of Pfizer and Moderna that those vaccines were tested using fetal cells that had been aborted, and even the connection to the previous testing, makes them cooperative with evil in a way that their religion prohibits.”

“I don’t want to say anything too categorical but I believe that this claim will be very difficult for agencies to successfully claim that’s either insincere or not religious, even if it is,” Letterman continued. “Even if we know that many of those claims are not sincere, or are sincere but not religious, this is the most common behavior you’re going to confront probably, and it’s likely that you will have to take as a given the employee’s claim.”
Letterman then seemed to mock those seeking to avoid being vaccinated for religious reasons, saying that they would possibly go to any lengths to prove their point.
“Not always, right, but one response that some hospitals have started to give is, ‘well do you know that Tylenol, and Tums, and Preparation H, those were all tested using aborted fetal cell lines, too.’ And I expect that employees will then say ‘well I didn’t know that, but now that you tell me that I’ll stop using those products as well,’” Letterman said.
