Covid-19 Vaccine Catholic Religious Exemptions
In the hysterical media push to promote the mRNA jab, several Catholic bishops and priests have declared that they will not grant religious exemptions for Catholics in their diocese. This requires some immediate correction and clarification.
Neither priests, bishops or popes "give" or grant a religious exemption to anyone. That is not what an exemption is or how it works. It's very annoying to continously hear priests say such ignorant statements as the one referred to. As per the EEOC, invoking an exemption is made by each individual, who invokes their "sincerely held religious beliefs." Two of my relatives who work for CA have done this, the state accepted it easily because unlike these clownish modernist priests, their employer actually knows & follows the law. 🙄🤦🏼♂️
Additionally , Many US bishops have written templates for religious exemptions for covid vax, & I know priests who will sign it. This merely serves as "corroborating evidence."
Below this brief EEOC excerpt, I list & link to numerous very good templates by Catholic bishops for covid vaccine religious exemptions. Excerpt:
NOTE TO EEOC INVESTIGATORS · If the Respondent (R) disputes that the Charging Party’s (“CP’s”) belief is “religious,” consider the following:
⇒ Begin with the CP’s statements. What religious belief, observance, or practice does the CP claim to have that conflicts with an employment requirement? In most cases, the CP’s credible testimony regarding his belief, observance, or practice will be sufficient to demonstrate that it is religious. In other cases, however, the investigator may need to ask follow-up questions about the nature and tenets of the asserted religious beliefs, and/or any associated practices, rituals, clergy, observances, etc., in order to identify a specific religious belief, observance, or practice or determine if one is at issue, which conflicts with an employment requirement.
⇒ Since religious beliefs can be unique to an individual, evidence from others is not always necessary. However, if the CP believes such evidence will support his or her claim, the investigator could seek evidence such as oral statements, affidavits, or other documents from CP’s religious leader(s) if applicable, or others whom CP identifies as knowledgeable regarding the religious belief, observance, or practice in question that conflicts with an employment requirement."
This is from the great bishop, His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider. It's very straightforward & explains how religious exemptions actually work in the USA. Please read it, it's only 2 short pages:

This is Great! Colorado Catholic Bishop's Conference issues 'TEMPLATE FOR RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION FROM COVID-19 VACCINES' 😇🙏🏻
It applies to ALL Catholics:
Excerpts: "A person is morally required to obey his or her conscience.
"A Catholic may judge it wrong to receive certain vaccines for a variety of reasons consistent with these teachings, and there is no authoritative Church teaching universally obliging Catholics to receive any vaccine. An individual Catholic may invoke Church teaching to refuse a vaccine that used abortion-derived cell lines at any stage of the creation of the vaccine. More generally, a Catholic might refuse a vaccine based on the Church’s teachings concerning therapeutic proportionality...
"Vaccination is not a universal obligation and a person must obey his or her own conscience. Therefore, if a Catholic comes to an informed judgment that he or she should not receive a vaccine, then the Catholic Church requires that the person follow this judgment of conscience and refuse the vaccine. The Catechism is clear: “Man has the right to act in conscience and in freedom so as personally to make moral decisions. ‘He must not be forced to act contrary to his conscience. Nor must he be prevented from acting according to his conscience, especially in religious matters.’”

Also: A group of prelates, including Cardinal Janis Pujats of Riga, Latvia, and Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Astana, Kazakhstan, has contested the morality of the vaccines on the grounds that even “remote” cooperation in the evil of abortion “can never be justified.”
All of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in circulation in the United States have connections to fetal cell lines, whether in design, development, or testing, and have also been linked to serious side effects such as myocarditis and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Both the National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) and the Catholic Medical Association (CMA) have publicly opposed mandatory COVID-19 vaccination, as well. The NCBC provided a template https://www.ncbcenter.org/ncbc-news/vaccineletter for those seeking a religious exemption from vaccine requirements.
Here are some good reasons to oppose it by a good Latin Mass priest I know:

This is the same priest, from 2008!:
Unethical Vaccines and The Enemy Is Watching https://www.veritascaritas.com/podcast-download/546/unethical-vaccines-and-the-enemy-is-watching.mp3
He says essentially it is taking part in a satanic human sacrifice. I'd die a trillion times before I'd get a vax that was made on the back of a murdered infant, especially for fear of a virus in which 99.7+% of unvaccinated patients recover with no problem! 🙄

A Few Considerations Fr. Phil Wolfe, FSSP
My relative is an employee of CA & got a religious exemption very easily. No ❌ 💉 jab for them! Many of their coworkers are refusing it also. They know. They had a signed note from our Catholic priest (religious exemption) but the employer didn't even ask for it. just signed their standard vax declination form , clicked religious exemption & it was no problem. I think much of this is based on mere pressure, fear, so in that regard it's a hoax. My relative was willing to be fired but People are calling the state's bluff. 🙏🏻👍🏻👊🏻👏🏻😇 🚫💉🚫 ✅✅
