Are you wondering how to file for a religious exemption from employer-required medical treatments (such as injections) that violate your sincerely held religious beliefs?
If so, let me pass on some helpful resources I was blessed to find.
Peggy Hall is an advisor helping people fight the illegal “injection mandate.”
Although she’s not an attorney, she knows the law that protects you against religious persecution from your employer, namely Title VIl of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
If you are a student, other sections of the same law apply to you.
Peggy’s advice is consistent with the advice that I received from a lawyer that I hired.
To get help, go to Peggy’s website at https://www.thehealthyamerican.org/
Click the Religious Exemptions tab and follow the instructions.
You can learn everything you need from watching her free videos, but she also offers concierge (consulting) services for a fee.
She has many helpful videos on her YouTube channel “The Healthy American Peggy Hall” at https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCwC7VpIHS2uJzJ0q5I11oQA
I would suggest watching the excellent videos in the “Religious Exemptions” playlist on her YouTube channel.

I filed my exemption form with my employer and it was approved 3 days later. You must use specific language that you have a “sincerely held religious belief” in order to trigger the protection of Title VII, so make sure to follow Peggy’s advice. See sample below.
SAMPLE TEMPLATE LETTER:
I am notifying you of my religious exemption to any and all employer-required medical treatments, including injections, nasal swab tests, and masks. I have a sincerely held religious belief that forcing a person to undergo any unwanted medical treatment is gravely immoral. To comply would violate my conscience. Your audacious campaign to force C*O*V*I*D injections on me against my will violates the 5th commandment and thus is part of the war against God. The 5th commandment of God is: You shall not kill (Exodus 20:13).
The 5th commandment not only forbids killing or harming another person unjustly, but also forbids suicide and harming oneself. The 5th commandment requires me to use prudence to preserve my health and avoid treatment that is not necessary, not effective, and not safe.
I believe that C*O*V*I*D injections are not necessary, not effective, and are definitely not safe. More than 16,000 deaths and 778,000 adverse reactions from these injections—including heart attacks, strokes, myocarditis, paralysis, and miscarriages—have been reported in the VAERS database through October 1, 2021.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee’s religion. Employers must make reasonable accommodations for an employee’s sincerely held religious beliefs if doing so does not impose undue hardship on the employer.
Continuing my present accommodation of working at home (insert whatever you have been doing during the last 18 months to satisfy your employer) does not impose undue hardship on you. Failure to grant an exemption would run afoul of Title VII and established First Amendment free-exercise principles of Church-state law.
My attorney has informed me that you may not require documentation from a pastor or religious official regarding the nature of my religious belief. All that is required is that I have the sincerely held religious belief. It does not matter whether anyone else agrees with my belief.
However, I will state for the record that the requirement to obey the 5th commandment has been a Christian teaching for nearly 2000 years.
What happened in my case?
After receiving my form, my employer sent me a list of unlawful harassing questions regarding my religious beliefs.
Because of watching Peggy’s videos, I knew I didn’t need to defend my religious beliefs to them.
I simply answered that it was unlawful for them to grill me about my religious beliefs and I would not be responding to any further interrogation.
I also stated that I was starting to feel like they were harassing and discriminating against me.
Six minutes later, they accepted my religious exemption.
They are still delaying granting my “reasonable accommodation,” but my lawyer said that since I requested to continue what I’ve been doing since 2016, if they do deny my reasonable accommodation and fire me, I can sue them and they will lose in court.
His exact words were: “Legally, they’re dead in the water.”
I’m sure the battle is not over and they have other tricks up their sleeve.
Most employers know their egregious behavior is illegal, but they hope that you don’t know your rights.
Whatever your employer does, don’t quit! Keep all documentation, forms, and emails. If they fire you, sue them.
