To Whom It May Concern:
This email is in regards to the religious exemption letter I obtained from the website, jdfarag.org. J.D. Farag is the Founding and Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe in Hawaii, and I am what is affectionately referred to as an “online member” of this church, which is a global ministry as well as a local congregation. While they do not have a formal church membership, anyone who watches the online services of the church and or is subscribed to YouTube or the website is considered a member whether locally or globally.
In regards to the website (jdfarag.org) exemption request letter on the webpage, kindly allow me to explain. Calvary Chapel Kaneohe currently has approximately 300,000 “followers” and “subscribers” on YouTube and their website. When they first announced that they would make these religious exemption letters available, their small staff was quickly inundated with thousands of requests, which they were not ready for.
As such, they utilized the services of “The Masters Touch Print and Mail” who agreed to create a web page to facilitate what at last count was approximately 100,000 requests. This after Pastor Farag had personally signed hundreds of requests initially. Simply put, they underestimated the size of their global ministry in this respect.
Further, they have provided everyone with supporting documents and even set up a separate link on the site for members needing additional support. Also, they are keenly aware that there are those who are “gaming the system” as it were, by virtue of the above- mentioned webpage and volume of requests. However, I can assure you that I am in no way doing this.
Sadly, there will always be those who take advantage of a genuine effort to help and support people. Be that as it may, I am one of hundreds of thousands if not millions of people all over the world who are refusing this injection for the religious reasons stated in said exemption letter.
I will assume that this email has sufficed in verifying the authenticity of my church membership and the validity of the exemption letter, as well as the Biblical basis upon which the request was submitted.
