I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, please speak to Your people about the Covid vaccine! Direct us and guide us and protect us. Give courage to those who are fighting to preserve religious and medical freedom.

To mask or not? To vax or not? There is help–read on.

The good news is state governments and nonprofits are responding to protect your rights with helpful resources and new laws as outlined below.  These are the questions parents and concerned citizens are asking and they have a right to decide what is right for their bodies and their children.

The Children’s Health Defense has a website with well written resources to use in a variety of settings such as work or schools to protect your rights. Their site also features a “preventing vaccine mandate tool kit” with sample letters you can personalize to send to school districts or universities that are mandating vaccines.

This website provides resources to push back against mask mandates. One letter they provide starts out as follows, “This serves as notice that the mandate for any individual to wear a mask against COVID-19 for employment or attendance at a university or other institution violates federal law.”  This website also includes a link to a 50-state update on state legislation with respect to masks, testing, and vaccine requirements.

Employers must make reasonable accommodations to employees that refuse an experimental vaccine if they have “sincerely held religious beliefs.”

The U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Section 12 addresses Title VII’s prohibition against religious discrimination in employment, including topics such as religious harassment, and workplace accommodation of religious beliefs and practices.

EEOC says it protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical, or moral beliefs.

Covid-19 has moved Title VII protections to the forefront based on new Covid variants and rising infection rates again in the U.S. and companies mandating masks and vaccinations.

Unvaccinated Americans have the right not to be. Do you remember the slogan “My Body, My Choice”? The abortion lobby is famous for this statement, but this certainly applies to an experimental vaccine “for emergency use.”

We are facing a double standard when the vaccinated can keep their jobs, go to restaurants and other venues but others are marked as “the unvaccinated” and must relinquish the right to assemble freely or keep their jobs. A recent article by Bloomberg Law reported employers can legally separate vaccinated from unvaccinated workers by shifts and floor,  but lawyers are cautioning against it, following recent CDC guidance that says those fully inoculated against COVID-19 can mostly shed their masks. “Segregating workers also raises potential legal risks, as some workers can’t get vaccinated due to health conditions or religious objections,” said A. Klair Fitzpatrick, a partner with management-side law firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP in Philadelphia.

Various states have proposed or passed legislation to build legal protections for the unvaccinated.

Ohio House Bill 248, Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act, sponsored by Rep. Jennifer Gross, prohibits mandatory vaccinations, vaccination status disclosures, and certain other actions regarding vaccinations. Rep. Gross recently stated that while she is “pro-vaccine,” it’s a matter of freedom. “There are eleven and a half million people in Ohio,” said Gross. “Many people across the state may be likely to decline vaccines like the COVID-19 vaccine for conscientious, religious, or medical reasons. Without the exemption provisions this bill provides, the notion of a vaccine passport could easily lead to a class system in Ohio where segregation and discrimination will proliferate.”

Florida signed into law Executive Order 21-18 which prohibits businesses from requiring patrons or customers to present vaccine passports or other forms of documentation certifying vaccination.

Georgia Executive Order 05.25.21.01 prohibits state agencies from imposing different rules or requirements on employees without proof of vaccination.

Idaho, Executive Order No. 2021-04 prevents entities and state officials from producing or issuing Covid-19 vaccine passports or requiring proof of receipt of a vaccine to access state services or facilities.

Indiana House Bill 1405 was signed into law. It prohibits the state or a local unit from issuing or requiring a Covid-19 “immunization passport.”

Kentucky Senate Bill 8 was signed into law. It provides exceptions from mandatory immunization for any child, emancipated minor, or adult who, personally or by a parent or guardian, submits a written sworn statement objecting to immunizations based on conscientiously held beliefs.

Montana House Bill 334 and House Bill 702 were signed into law. HB 334 provides a religious exception for student immunization requirements. HB 702 prohibits discrimination based on a person’s vaccination status.

Lord God, You are the God who sees. We rest in knowing You are in control. You have a purpose for this time. We honor You. We give You the glory! We ask that You open the eyes of the blind. Give our leaders all godly wisdom, knowledge and understanding to make decisions out of sound scientific data and to close their ears to the political pressure. I pray that You will preserve our right to make health decisions without limitations. Throughout all of this guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. In the name above all names, Jesus, Amen.

Father in the name of Jesus i bless and thank you for political leaders like Rep. Jennifer Gross, who is stepping up to the Vaccine giants with courage to protect constitutional rights sponsoring bills such as Ohio House Bill 248, Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act. Father i ask you to bless her richly and prosper her politically to stand against all types of evil in government and to fearlessly stand against corruption and expose it, Father raise up more like her, may her courage inspire others to be more concerned about our constitutional rights than their political careers and commit their careers into Your just hands then promote and protect them and their families! Father raise up enough such as her in each and every state in America to use their political influence in this manner, and to back down, Father equip them with the courageous spirit Your servant David had against Goliath, give these leaders confidence and five smooth stones, and the skill to shoot a mortal blow into the head of the vaccine giant and bring it down and cut off it’s head in the name of Jesus, we thank you that you are the same yesterday today and always and we trust you to protect our constitutional and spiritual rights to trust our bodily health to you alone according to your word, expecting you to honor it : Exodous 15:26
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
