Former 'General Hospital' star Ingo Rademacher filed a lawsuit against ABC on Monday, December 13, over the company's vaccine mandate. Rademacher argued that the mandate is unconstitutional. Rademacher was removed from the soap opera last month for refusing to get vaccinated. He played Jasper “Jax” Jacks in the show. Steve Burton, another 'General Hospital' star, was fired last week for refusing to comply with the show's vaccine mandate.

Rademacher claimed in the suit that ABC religiously discriminated against him, and refused to give him a religious exemption for the jab. Rademacher pleaded his case with the company’s human resource department before being fired, but it did not help. “I am entitled to a religious exemption against mandatory vaccination for Covid-19 on the basis of my deeply and sincerely held moral belief that my body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me and that its natural integrity cannot ethically be violated by the administration of artificially created copies of genetic material, foreign to nature and experimental,” Rademacher reportedly wrote in an October 11 email to Disney’s HR department.

In September, Bob Enyart, a conservative radio host and pastor, who openly opposed mask mandates and vaccines, died of Covid. According to a Facebook post by his co-host, Fred Williams, pastor of the Denver Bible Church, Enyart died on Monday, September 13. Enyart was 62 years old. Bob Enyart's 'Real Science Radio Show' website rallied against what it called the "imagined" burden of Covid-19 cases on hospitals. Instead, Enyart emphasized treating the virus by following the Bible and blamed "fake news" outlets for exaggerating the severity of the virus. Enyart and his wife Cheryl both had refused to get the coronavirus vaccine citing that Covid-19 vaccines rely on "cells of aborted babies". Enyart also successfully sued the state to shut down capacity limits and stop mask mandates in churches.
