A New York attorney, James Filenbaum, has won almost every religious exemption case he has fought in his state. Thanks to Filenbaum, the opportunity to secure the protection of First Amendment Rights in the avoidance of immunization for ourselves or our children is now clearly available to those of us who have genuine religious beliefs against immunization.
Remember the first 16 words of the First Amendment: This is a much broader base than was possible before Filenbaum won his landmark cases. One of the aspects of this exemption which is hindering a great number of people from utilizing it is the fact that many people view religion in traditional terms and do not feel the exemption can apply to them because they are not members of a specific church such as the Christian Scientists.
Religion goes far beyond simple membership in a church, attendance of services, adherence to prescribed dogma, or participation in various rituals. In a telephone interview for this report Filenbaum explained: Constitution prohibits states from discriminating between people based on their religious beliefs.
If there is any state law which allows for exemption based on religious beliefs, it is available to all those people who hold religious beliefs against immunization even if their beliefs are personal and unique to them alone. Filenbaum explained further, "The important legal precedents which we set in the area of religious freedom and health freedom issues can be applied on a national basis.
Each case must be analyzed on its own merit. However, the basis for achieving success has been established and the fundamental principles of freedom of religious worship as provided by the founding fathers of our country must be respected and enforced to protect all those who am seeking protection from immunization based on religious beliefs.
We are all indebted to the health freedom patriots who fought very hard many years ago to win these religious exemptions. Admittedly the language of these excessively narrow state religious exemption laws state or imply that, to qualify for a religious exemption, a person must be a member of a "recognized religious organization" whose tenants are against immunization.
What we have been successful at is informing people that their views of life, nature, the universe, spiritualism, the scriptures, and various other things can be interpreted as religious beliefs and that those beliefs can be used as a basis for securing exemption from immunization.
The distinction between philosophical beliefs and religious beliefs raise questions which scholars in those two disciplines could debate for generations. However, the standards set by the U. Public education is available to all children who are residents of a particular locality.
If the school or the state can establish a rational basis for actions which would exclude certain children from attending then they can do so provided they are not violating any federally protected rights or other rights of the children.
For example, unvaccinated children could be excluded from school during a measles, or other epidemic.
Therefore, the religious belief exemption is now available to all those persons who sincerely hold, and can adequately express their claim for an exemption so that it qualifies as being based upon their religious beliefs.
