Joe Biden was dealt a major blow by federal workers who just won in court.
Biden’s coronavirus vaccine mandate put the jobs and livelihoods of many Americans at risk.
In a new ruling, judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued a temporary restraining order against the mandate.
This decision protects military and civilian employees from being fired while their requests for religious exemptions to Biden’s vaccine mandate are being heard.
“None of the civilian employee plaintiffs will be subject to discipline while his or her request for a religious exception is pending,” Kollar-Kotelly ordered.
This ruling came in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.
When religious exemptions are denied and thousands of Americans lose jobs because of their faith in God…
Let me be clear:
— I will sue you RELENTLESSLY
God is more important than money.
— learn that lesson or I’ll teach it to you

More from Western Journal:
The judge also ruled that “active duty military plaintiffs, whose religious exception requests have been denied, will not be disciplined or separated during the pendency of their appeals,” according to Fox News.
The court further ordered that Biden and the top administration officials named in the lawsuit file a notice Friday to indicate whether they will agree that no plaintiff will be disciplined or terminated until there is a final ruling on the question of religious exemptions.
Twenty people had sued Biden and his top officials over the executive order that mandated vaccinations for all federal workers, civilian and military alike.
“The Biden administration has shown an unprecedented, cavalier attitude toward the rule of law and an utter ineptitude at basic constitutional contours,” attorney Michael Yoder, who represented those suing the administration, said in a statement.
“This combination is dangerous to American liberty,” Yoder said “Thankfully, our Constitution protects and secures the right to remain free from religious persecution and coercion.”
“With this order, we are one step closer to putting the Biden administration back in its place by limiting government to its enumerated powers. It’s time citizens and courts said no to tyranny. The Constitution does not need to be rewritten, it needs to be reread,” he said.
