A football coach at the United States Naval Academy says he has been fired for refusing to receive an experimental COVID injection.

Billy Ray Stutzman, a devout Christian, announced his ejection from the coaching staff after being denied a religious exemption from the Naval Academy Athletic Association’s new vaccination mandate.

“Based on my religious convictions, and after much thought and prayer, I am unable to follow the requirements of the Naval Academy’s Covid-19 policy, as it has changed these last few months,” Stutzman wrote in a statement he published on social media. “After applying for a religious exemption and attempting to further negotiate alternative working arrangements, I was ultimately relieved of my duties here at Navy.”

“I continue to stand firm in my conviction of faith, but I understand and respect that each individual and institution has a choice on how they wish to manage these issues.”

Stutzman says he worked under head coach Ken Niumatalolo for two seasons and expressed gratitude for relationships he formed with players at the school during his time there.

Infowars has previously reported on the plights of athletes corralled into accepting COVID jabs, including NFL quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who recently tested positive for the virus after being “forced” into receiving unwanted injections.

“I wouldn’t have gotten the vaccine without the protocols that they’re enforcing on us. I think it’s a personal decision for everyone. Everyone has to make the best decision for them and their families,” Tannehill explained in July. “That’s kind of our mindset in this building. But they’re trying to force your hand, and they ultimately have forced a lot of hands by the protocols.”

“I want to be able to compete and do the things I think are important to build chemistry and win football games. Ultimately, that forced my hand into getting the vaccine.”
