San Diego Community Colleges Fire Dozens of Employees over Vaccine Refusal

'At least 30 Christian employees at SDCCD ... have been purposely targeted for termination, even now, for not accepting to take a fetus cell-tainted injection...'

(Dominick Sansone, Headline USA) The San Diego Community College District has recently fired more than two dozen Christian employees over their refusal to get the COVID vaccine, according to a report by Lifesite News.

“I am one of at least 30 Christian employees at SDCCD that have been purposely targeted for termination, even now, for not accepting to take a fetus cell-tainted injection,” mathematics professor Carlos de la Lama told the website.

The move comes after three other employees were fired in January for not receiving the experimental shots.

The SDCCD remains the only system of colleges in California that continues to terminate employees for noncompliance with a vaccine mandate.

In 2021, the SDCCD ensured employees that they would not be fired over the mandates and agreed to grant both medical and religious exemptions.

However, the school system abruptly changed course after receiving pressure from the local chapter of the American Federation of Teachers, the second-largest teachers union in the United States.

The AFT affiliate advocated for more forceful coercion tactics in order to push employees to take the vaccine. Religious exemption applications began to be denied while medical exemptions were allowed to persist, suggesting an illegal act of discrimination.

Subsequent action by a constitutional lawyer representing those employees disenfranchised by the possible discrimination caused the system to suddenly grant the religious exemptions.

However, the system continued to fail in providing adequate accommodation for those with religious exemptions, despite meeting the requirements for those with medical exemptions.

Amy Reichert, cofounder of the group ReOpen San Diego, stated in an interview with a local news program that she believed the actions of the SDCCD to be representative of an “attack on Christians.”

ReOpen San Diego previously issued legislation that helped pressure the city council to end its COVID emergency declaration, as well as its employee vaccine mandate.

The school district’s Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for passing judgment on whether or not employees will be terminated for non-compliance. According to the article, many of these individuals include “woke” buzzwords in their bios.

A March 2 BOT meeting is expected to result in the termination of six more Christian employees.
