U.M attempted to put me on leave without pay because I did not consent to their illegal policies that violate my sincerely held religious beliefs, even after a charge i have against them for religious discrimination. The five days I was on leave without pay were reversed in favor of leave with pay which is legal.
They have recently reversed their Policies because of the legal issues that entails and are now asking people as myself to submit another exemption letter. Below is a letter I wrote and am still working on. Let me know what you guys think so far?😊
Hope this help's people who are going through similar issues as I with their Employers.

Dear Human Resources Department
I have a Legal and Federal Exemption protected by Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and I am hereby notifying you as required by law once again, that there is a conflict between your measures, policies and protocols, and my sincerely held religious beliefs.
Your policies, measures and protocols include but aren't limited to, forceful mass vaccinations of employees and (testing for those who aren't vaccinated), via threats of discriminating in respect to employees compensation and/or termination even if an Employee belongs to a protected class for having sincerely held religious beliefs that do not permit him, or her to participate in these things.
The Eternal our Creator has given humanity an immune system, and my sincerely held religious belief is that altering the immune system he has given us to fight disease is sinful. Doing otherwise would put me in a situation where I would need to compromise my relationship with my God and Saviour in favor of honoring the wishes of men which is something I cannot do, and it is also something federal law protects me from. Federal Law protects those with sincerely held religious beliefs from having to choose between their religion and their job.
Here are examples from the Torah:
Exodus 23:25 You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.
I serve him and trust that he is the one that will bless my bread and water, and that he is the one that takes sickness away from amongst us, not men.
Exodus 15:26. Saying, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”
Read the above carefully please Human Resources Department. If you diligently listen to the Eternal's voice, and do what is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all of his statutes. None of the diseases that clobbered the Egyptians will he put on you. Sars-Cov 2, and all of its variants exist because of disobedience towards our creator. Vaccines are not a fix to your sin problems, on the contrary, getting vaccinated actually shows that you don't trust the Eternal God to keep you from disease as he promised, nor do you trust him to be your healer.
As for weekly testing, my sincerely held religious beliefs do not permit me to participate in deception, such as agreeing to be sick and needing to test, when I am not sick. The Torah clearly condemns deception! Coercion is also against my sincerely held religious beliefs. Those as I, with sincerely held religious beliefs, are being coerced into forceful testing even if it compromises our religious principles in the name of Policies, Protocols, Measures and Requirements which none have any legal or binding power. No business can create rules, laws or mandates that violate federal laws. A business whether it is private, or public cannot require for example all male workers to get a vasectomy, or everyone to walk in naked in the premises because they need to be 100% certain that people aren't hiding or carrying drugs. No business private or public can have Policies that Requires them not to hire Muslims because they feel all Muslims are Terrorist. No business can require an Orthodox Jewish Man to remove his Kippah before entering the premise, nor a Muslim to remove his Turban. No business can require a Torah Observant man into getting tested when that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs.
Daniel Chapter 3 shows that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego preferred death rather than honoring the King's requirement of Worshiping the Image of Gold. Shadrach Meshach and Abednego had to choose between their God and the King's Mandates which were law.
They chose their God and that was their sincerely held religious beliefs! In a similar matter, we who know that vaccines and coerced weekly testing violate our sincerely held religious beliefs, will always choose our Creator over those Rules.
It is also against my sincerely held religious beliefs to test weekly because of the foreign matters the testing devices have that enter the body. Knowing this fact, I am not allowed to tempt the Eternal and do something I know displeases him and it is toxic to the body and soul he has given me. Deuteronomy 6:16 You shall not tempt the Lord your God, as you tempted him in Massah
