    THAT is a LOT of obesity, but I must say it very believable.

    Too many people like this and the government would lose control and the medical community would go broke.
    If you believe that guy is Amish I have some land in Holmes county Ohio to sell you!

    Huge Amish/Mennonite community in Sarasota, FL where we used to live. Old friends say their community was devastated by the virus. Take that as you like. Those who survived were apparently fine with the outcome.

    Go walk down the beach one day. It’s shocking, and NOT in a good way. I won’t get into the clothing police aspect of this…….

    Yes and anyone who has ever dealt with Amish know the last thing they want is attention or interviews on TV. That guy was not Amish, sorry. Maybe ex-Amish however.

    Many many Amish died from covid, most were not reported which is fine by them. The life expectancy is generally 5-10 years less in that community and the infant mortality rate is pretty high. They deal with death a lot better than most of the population for better or worse.

    Did anyone else happen to catch Scott Sloaneís show on WLW yesterday? He somehow got a copy of a document that a local company, but with a global recognition (wonder who that could be ), is requesting those claiming a religious exemption for not getting vaccinated need to complete. Based on the questions, Iím wondering if itís fake. I donít remember all of them, but Iíll mention the ones I do.

    They want to know the name of the religion under which youíre claiming the exemption, the name, address, phone number, and a contact name for the church you attend, the attendance policy of said church, and your actual attendance at services at the church. Theyíre also asking if you have taken any other vaccinations at any point in your life or if any of your family members have ever taken any vaccinations. If you, or they, have, what makes this vaccination different under your religion.

    There were a lot of other incredibly intrusive questions that Iím not remembering. At the bottom of the document, the employee must sign, acknowledging that everything is true, and that if the company determines anything is false, you understand that you can be terminated from your employment.

    I find it hard to believe that the attorneys and HR pros at a global company would allow this. I understand that theyíre trying to counter those employees who simply donít want to get vaccinated and want to use religion as an excuse.

    If the document is real, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    What questions do you think a company should ask when determining whether or not to allow a religious example?

    Iím not sure, but I think some of these are a bit too far. Asking for a contact at your church so they can check to see how frequently you attend? Asking about vaccinations taken by other family members? I donít see the relevance.
