@VGM Religion is not a strawman, but the cause of the crime discussed in that meme.

It takes religion to convince people to commit a suicide attack to please an (imaginary) god. It takes the (imaginary) rewards and punishments in the afterlife that religion offers to convince people to commit atrocities that would otherwise be unthinkable.

It is almost comical how the supposedly "pro-liberty" people who oppose vaccines try and perform mental gymnastics to dodge the conclusions in the above paragraph.

Tyson is also within its rights to mandate vaccines because a private property owner should be and is able to decide who enters their property. That goes to the core of what it means to own property - the right to exclude others. Here, Tyson is deciding they will exclude people who, by virtue of their poor medical decisions, pose a danger to others. Similar logic applies to decisions about who a private company chooses to employ.
