How Jesse would answer employers who mandate the vaccine

October 26, 2021


What is the religion for which you are seeking an accommodation?


My conscience as a Catholic Christian does not allow me to use morally tainted vaccines that were made from cell lines from aborted babies. These were real babies who never consented to be part of an experiment in order to be injected into a billion people. In Catholicism, we are taught that our moral conscience has a certain primacy, it cannot be violated. No one, not even a bishop, can order a Catholic to go against your well-informed Catholic conscience. The Catholic Church treasures her teaching on the sanctity of conscience. “Conscience is the most secret core and sanctuary of a man. There he is alone with God, Whose voice echoes in his depths” (Saint Pope Paul VI, Gaudium et Spes, no. 16). St. Pope Paul VI wrote: “In all his activity a man is bound to follow his conscience in order that he may come to God, the end and purpose of life. It follows that he is not to be forced to act in a manner contrary to his conscience. Nor, on the other hand, is he to be restrained from acting in accordance with his conscience, especially in matters religious (Saint Paul VI, Dignitatis Humanae, no. 3).

The National Catholic Bioethics Center further reaffirms, "There is a general moral duty to refuse the use of medical products, including certain vaccines, that are produced using human cell lines derived from direct abortions" and that "there is no authoritative Church teaching universally obliging Catholics to receive any vaccine." See:


What is the sincerely held religious expression, observance or requirement for which you are seeking accommodation?


The problem in my conscience is that many modern vaccines involve the use of cells derived from aborted babies (known as “fetal cell lines”). It is argued that the babies themselves were not killed for these tissue samples; but this ignores the close cooperation that must exist between the harvester and the abortion Doctor for living samples to be extracted. I am a conscientious objector, I cannot allow my body to be injected with these morally tainted vaccines. Another point of concern for me is that none of us have recourse to a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical companies, they are exempt from litigation if I get sick or worse.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church 2295 – “Research or experimentation on the human being cannot legitimate acts that are in themselves contrary to the dignity of persons and to the moral law. The subjects' potential consent does not justify such acts. Experimentation on human beings is not morally legitimate if it exposes the subject's life or physical and psychological integrity to disproportionate or avoidable risks. Experimentation on human beings does not conform to the dignity of the person if it takes place without the informed consent of the subject or those who legitimately speak for him.”


Describe the conflict between the religious exemption, observance, or requirement and a work requirement or policy. Provide as much specificity as possible, and identify all areas of conflict?


Here is the conflict, NEVER in the history of the world, has a government sought to forcibly impose mass vaccination on an entire class of people under threat of immediate personal and professional destruction of our employment. This is an example of how the COVID culture is exceeding its authority. When I was hired, I never agreed to allow my employer to dictate what vaccines or medication I had to insert into my body as a condition of my employment. Its my body, it should be my choice. Government intrusion as to what to do with my body is not acceptable to me. The conflict in my mind is also the many conflicting reports from Doctors who vehemently disagree with each other about the merits of the vaccine. There is too much controversy amongst Doctors over this issue. The fact that it is pushed by government coercion, makes me suspicious that it is beyond a medicine, it seems to be a political experimental project.  No medicine for health ever needs coercion.  Can you imagine in a real pandemic the government needing to use threats and treats to get a dying population to take a truly-healthy and life-giving medicine? Of course not.


Describe the accommodation that you propose to eliminate the conflict. Include any alternative accommodations that you believe will also eliminate the conflict?


Since I have already had covid 19 I now have natural immunity. There is an ISRAELI STUDY that says: ‘Fully Vaxxed Are 27 Times More Likely to Get COVID Compared To People With Natural Immunity. Fully vaccinated are 27 times more likely to get the virus, and 8 times more likely to require hospitalization, compared to those with natural immunity’ - former assistant secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS) Dr & Admiral Brett Groir, acknowledged the power of natural immunity in fighting covid 19. He said: “So, natural immunity, it’s very important. There are still no data to suggest vaccine immunity is better than natural immunity. I think both are highly protective” - U.S. official finally acknowledges Covid-19 natural immunity: ‘As good as vaccine’ | Sharyl Attkisson

There is a growing body of literature that shows natural immunity not only confers robust, durable and high-level protection against COVID, but also provides better protection than vaccine-induced immunity.


What is the time period or frequency for the requested accommodation, e.g. daily, monthly, seasonally, annually?


 would like to be exempt from the mandatory vaccine as long as our Senators, Congressmen, 600.000 Postal Employees and illegal immigrants are NOT forced to take the vaccine - Biden Administration Details Who Is Covered By the Federal Employee Vaccine Mandate, Exemptions and Discipline - Government Executive ( also cf. Members of Congress and Their Staff Are Exempt From Biden's Vaccine Mandate ( I would like the accommodation to last as long as I am a conscientious objector.


 If requested, can you provide verification to support that this support request for an accommodation is due to a sincerely held religious belief or practice?


Again, the religion I was raised in, Catholicism has authority to teach me about faith and morals. The Church admits herself that she is not an expert on medicine or science or politics. Therefore, the Catholic Church allows every single member to follow their own conscience on these matters (medicine, science, politics). The Church recognizes that each Catholic has primacy of conscience to decide whether they should get the vaccine or not. This is an individual choice, not a matter that the Church dictates to individuals. The denial of religious accomodations, or punitive or adverse personnel actions taken against those who raise earnest conscientious based objections, would be contrary to federal law and morally reprehensible.


Is there any other information that you believe will assist in our consideration?


“Even the NY Times quoting a Scientist states: ‘The coronavirus is here to stay, but once most adults are immune — following natural infection— the virus will be no more of a threat than the common cold’, according to a study published in the journal Science on Tuesday” - Coronavirus Will Resemble the Common Cold, Scientists Predict - The New York Times (

In an email to Catholic Bishops Dr Carrozza wrote about the government vaccine mandate:

1. Violates all aspects of the Nuremberg Code of 1947

2. Violates the Civil Rights Law of 1964

3. Violates Article Seven of the Helsinki Accord

4. The Free Exercise clause of the U.S. Constitution’s first amendment requires accommodation of individuals who object to vaccination on religious grounds.

Unfortunately, it will cause many Church going & faithful Catholics to lose their jobs. There must a more suitable solution to this issue. We are better than this.

Your older brother in Christ,

Almost 15,000 deaths and more than 700,000 injuries reported to the CDC run VAERS system since the Covid injections were launched in December [09-20-21] -

This is why I don’t want to take these experimental vaccines that were rushed through the pharmaceutical process through ‘operation warp speed’, no thank you, I’ll pass. My body, my choice!
