WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – A Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the request of a father and his disabled 4-year-old son to end the mask mandate required for air travel.
Last Thursday Chief Justice John Roberts rejected an emergency request seeking to block the federal mask mandate for air travel. Michael Seklecki, a Florida resident, had filed the lawsuit against the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on behalf of himself and his disabled 4-year-old son. Seklecki cited medical reasons as the need for an immediate injunction. Also joining as a plaintiff on the case was Washington resident Lucas Wall, who says he has been stranded in Florida since the beginning of the pandemic due to his inability to wear a mask.
According to an analysis by the New York Times, “The chief justice did not ask for a response to the application for emergency relief or refer the application to the full Supreme Court, and he gave no reasons for his ruling. Those were all signs that he viewed the legal question in the case as insubstantial.”
While Roberts axed the request for an emergency injunction, the broader challenge seeking to overturn the measure through litigation has progressed through the lower courts, and is awaiting an appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, according to the Axios news website.
PETITION UPDATE (9/27/21) -
United has agreed to put off its threatened COVID vaccine mandate for another 2 weeks, as proceedings came to a screeching halt in federal court last Friday.
Mark Paoletta, a partner at Schaerr Jaffe representing the plaintiffs, was quoted by Breitbart as saying:
"Now everyone can follow the court’s decision to take the time and care needed to carefully consider the legitimate claims our clients have as we seek a solution that allows United to take necessary steps to combat COVID-19 while respecting the civil rights of valuable employees who have sincere religious objections or medical conditions that make them unable to take the vaccine."
While this appears to be a lessening of tensions and possibly a step in the right direction, we must wait till the case resumes on October 15 to see if United will scrap their draconian mandate.
In the meantime, we must continue to apply pressure on United.
So, please continue to SIGN and SHARE this pledge to boycott the airline giant for threatening to impose harsh measures - including forced unpaid leave - in order to coerce employees with religious or medical objections to the vaccine to take the jab.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE!
United Airlines is accused of not respecting the religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions which the company offered to employees who cannot, in good conscience or health, take the vaccine.
2,000 employees of the industry giant are represented in two court cases which have been initiated to stop United from laying-off or indefinitely furloughing workers who have sought COVID vaccine exemptions.
Please SIGN this BOYCOTT of United and send the airline a stong message that you will not support the implementation of these draconian measures.
Many United Airlines employees have sincerely held religious objections to taking the COVID vaccines, while other employees have been told by their doctors not to take the vaccine due to health concerns.
The religious and medical rights of these employees must be respected, and, will hopefully be vindicated by the courts.
But, airlines are for-profit businesses, and apart from the legal incentives, there must also be financial incentives for them to respect their employees' religious and medical rights, and, indeed, the same rights of all Americans.
And, that's why we are calling for a boycott.
The CEO of United Airlines, Scott Kirby, and HR Manager, Kate Gebo, need to understand that the American public will not support businesses who force their employees or customers to violate their religious beliefs or their doctors' recommendations.
Of course, this is totally unnecessary.
United could simply make reasonable accommodations for their employees who are claiming either a religious or medical exemption.
But, until United adopts that policy, we are asking you to consider boycotting the "unfriendly skies" and find another airline for your travel needs. By doing so, you will meaningfully stand shoulder-to-shoulder with these aggrieved United employees.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to boycott United Airlines over the company's failure to respect religious and medical COVID vaccine exemptions for its employees.

Despite the widespread implementation of masks mandates as a measure to fight the so-called COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a growing body of data coming out of the scientific community calling the practice into question.
Currently, there are at least 47 studies showing the ineffectiveness of masks, with an additional 32 studies finding that not only is their use unnecessary and futile, but harmful to people’s health.
Notably, masks have been linked to lower oxygen levels in the blood, an increase in the growth of bacteria and fungi, the harmful proliferation of microplastics, increased psychological distress, and developmental and emotional dysfunction in children.
While the TSA’s mask mandate is due to expire on March 18, the agency has a history of extending their unscientific mandates to keep in line with the mainstream media’s narrative that “social distancing,” experimental vaccinations, and inhibited breathing are necessary measures to combating a virus the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reports as having an infection survival rate of greater than 99.95% for those under age 50.
