  • Replied to our survey – where he answered support for our position on every question but then said, “I voted to remove the philosophical exemption- not an easy vote. So if the conscience part of the conscience /religious question includes philosophy, then my answer needs to be so qualified. Similarly any disclosure should be reasonable and there could be instances of reasonable limited immunity I might be convinced on, but I would never support any blanket immunity. I trust the courts to decide when it comes to liability /immunity. Finally if by “discrimination” you mean barring school attendance, then I need to live with my vote (again not easy). I would not support any form discrimination without knowing more specifics.
