Rademacher's beliefs were considered health-related and not religious
Good evening Virginia fans of General Hospital. If you have been following Ingo Rademacher's situation for the past year and a half and wondered about his lawsuit there is now an update. Rademacher who portrayed Jasper “Jax” Jacks on the soap filed a lawsuit against ABC in December 2021 after he was fired for not complying with the COVID mandate. Rademacher said he should have been exempt from getting the vaccine because of his religious beliefs but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Goorvitch ultimately ruled in favor of ABC.
It was determined by the judge that Rademacher's complaints were health-related and not religious in nature so he didn’t qualify for a religious exemption. The actor did not validate his claims with any known religion but said he read from a book The Revelations of Ramala years ago. ABC’s lawyer emphasized that Rademacher’s testimony was about not getting the vaccine because he did not want to alter his immune system and his objections were not rooted in any "core religious beliefs".
When Ingo Rademacher cited a religious exemption General Hospital fans assumed he meant a well-known set of beliefs like Christianity, Mormonism, Judaism, or Islam. The Revelations of Ramala has been described as "a blending of Eastern enlightenment philosophy with Christian principles, to develop an ideal of "Christ-light". To develop one's Christ-light is to be able to perform miracles such as Jesus was capable".
Many GH fans had said they did not think Rademacher would be successful against the media giant of ABC/Disney and now it appears he has not. Be on the lookout for updates related to this issue as they become available. Rademacher has not commented on social media and his Facebook posts past September 2021 have been deleted. His Twitter account is set to private so he obviously does not desire to address the issue at this time.
