A huge court victory was just unanimously handed down to 16 University of Western Michigan student-athletes.


The students were battling their university’s vaccine mandate, which forced the athletes to get the vaccine or give up sports entirely.

Each one of the athletes had filed for a “religious exemption,” but that wasn’t good enough for the University – they were still forcing them to take the vaccine.

But the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio, stepped in and has now sided with the students in a UNANIMOUS decision.

Epoch Times reported that sixteen unvaccinated athletes won another round in their legal battle to play sports, despite Western Michigan University’s mandate that all of its inter-collegiate athletes get the COVID-19 vaccination shot.

In a unanimous published decision issued Oct. 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio, held that the university violated the athletes’ First Amendment rights.

All 16 athletes had filed for religious exemptions, which, according to the court, the university “ignored or denied.”

The court stated: “The university put plaintiffs to the choice: Get vaccinated, or stop fully participating in intercollegiate sports. By conditioning the privilege of playing sports on plaintiffs’ willingness to abandon their sincere religious beliefs, the university burdened their free exercise rights.”


The three-judge panel denied a request by the university to stay a lower court’s preliminary injunction that stopped it from enforcing the vaccination mandate.

The mandate would have barred the athletes from playing in games, or even practicing with their teams, unless they were immunized against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes the disease COVID-19.

Attorney David Kallman, senior counsel with the Great Lakes Justice Center, who represents the athletes, told the Epoch Times: “It’s a great win for our clients and for religious liberty.”

And speaking of the vaccine…

I know these are not “kids” by any stretch, but I saw this story here, which is terrifying in its own right.

Two small kids were “accidentally” given the COVID vax at a Walgreens, and now they’re suffering from heart issues.


Why are we pushing this on young, healthy people?

This is a huge victory for the college kids, but it’s also a victory for all freedom-loving Americans and concerned parents.


God Bless these athletes for taking this issue to the courts. This win here will set precedence…and that’s what we need to keep fighting these tyrannical mandates.
