1. Religion has become a wall of protection for grift, persecution, and special privileges.

Any rules that the religious folk want to break, they just claim religious exemption.

2. Some preachers take money to provide support biological terrorism.

"Muh gawd tells me to support the virus by allowing muh body to be used as a breeding ground for variants, and to engage in behavior to aggressively seek out and spread the virus"

"Amen"

3. When a man or woman doesn't want to obey a law,

they say that an invisible being has spoken to them so they don't have to.

For some reason, that is often accepted by people who know it is utter nonsense.

4. Maybe a rel exemption from quarantine for someone with a contagious disease attending their services

Maybe a rel exemption from quarantine for someone with a contagious disease attending their services?

You can't deny my right to worship!

Some kids still get mumps, measles, chicken pox.

Bring 'em to church.

5. Religions don't need logic to back their claims, and contradict each other

so therefore are ideal vehicles for pushing any idea you can't back up with proper argument, since the 1st Amendment protects "religion".

6. Supposedly it's because fetal stem cells were used during development.

For R&D purposes.
It's their "pro-life" religious right to ensure others die for their sins.

8. It's mostly bullshit these days, but there is some serious background...

Informative article about vaccine mandates in general:

https://scholarship.law.slu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi ?


Such mandatory vaccination laws might create friction with a large segment
of the American population, as a Gallup survey revealed that around thirty-five percent of Americans would not take the vaccine, even if it were free.14
In addition to concerns over the safety and efficacy of vaccines, many
people cite religious reasons for their reluctance to receive the shot.15 The
Church of Christ, Scientist, is the most well-known religious opponent of
mandatory vaccination laws, and through its lobbying efforts, has helped
to pass religious vaccine exemption laws in most states.16 While not
doctrinally mandated, prayer-based healing is central to the Christian
Science faith and has motivated the churchís efforts in lobbying for vaccine
exemptions in the past.17 In fact, the religionís main text, titled Science and
Health, focuses specifically on the connection between the miraculous
healing acts of Jesus and a mind-over-matter approach to healing, and
discourages reliance on pharmaceuticals and mainstream western
medicine.18 Outside of Christian Science, vaccine refusal is not a core tenant
of any major religion, although some religious devotees may still invoke
their faith as a reason to forgo vaccination.19 For example, many Catholics
have refused vaccinations that were created from cell lines from a
voluntarily aborted fetus.20 Some Orthodox Protestants, on the other hand,
simply claim that vaccination interferes with divine providence.21
Additionally, certain Muslims might deny a vaccine if it contains gelatin
derived from a non-halal22 animal, whereas a Buddhist might similarly reject a vaccine if its development has in any way resulted in the destruction
of any life form.

9. There should be no re for vaccines

Since you are endangering other peopleís lives. Would there be re if your r said it is ok for you to kill/ murder people? If you are not going to be vaxed for anything other than a valid medical reason you need to stay out of public society completely such as schools/ work etc. until the pandemic is under control, if it even can be at this point- who knows.

10. So in Oregon working for Nova health, we have patients asking for exempt. Our providers have said

they are not gonna play the game and hand them out. A patient has to go to a specialist of whatever ailment they have to get the exemption. I am rather proud of their stance.
