We The Patriots USA, Inc.: Major Federal Lawsuit Filed by Employees Against Bristol Myers Squibb

Thursday, December 2, 2021 - 1:43am

WTP USA released the following statement late Wednesday:  "The  compulsory injection of an experimental foreign substance with known and widespread adverse side effects--including death--and procured with the assistance of aborted fetal cell lines, cannot be compared to drinking a beer.  That such a question was posed to employees demonstrates an utter lack of understanding of the interactive process required by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and we are confident that the plaintiffs will be successful in this litigation.  It didn't have to come to this, but we are proud to stand up for the plaintiffs in their pursuit of religious liberty."

Key Points: 
  • "BMS has abandoned logic in the name of hysteria and is systematically purging people of faith from its workforce.
  • Carrie Kefalas, John Lott, Jeremy Beer, and Kamila Dubisz filed the lawsuit after BMS refused to provide them with an exemption as an accommodation for their sincerely-held religious beliefs.
  • The lawsuit seeks both preliminary and permanent injunctions enjoining BMS from terminating the employment of the plaintiffs and all other similarly-situated BMS employees.
  • The law doesn't permit Bristol Myers Squibb to act as a modern Spanish Inquisition and destroy people's lives simply because it doesn't like their religious beliefs."
