This is actually an example of mental illness that needs to be treated: Employer: “Vaccination is safe, extremely well understood in this instance and adverse reactions are extremely rare. If you have an adverse reaction, you’ll be taken care of.” Religious prole: “My religion says I can’t!” Employer: “Where specifically is your evidence of that?” Religious prole: “How dare you question my religious beliefs!” Employer: “You’re making statements that contradict reality – will you at least wear a mask to protect yourself and others?” Religious prole: “No! My imaginary friend says I can’t!” Employer: “You’re fired.” Religious prole: “How dare you!” How someone cannot see that there’s a mental health issue here is perplexing.
