I do not believe that it is legal for them to ask what religion or church you belong to.

 

There are court cases in which this has been covered, and an old member here used to post the case law all of the time.

This is the form:

 

http://www.doh.wa.gov/Portals/1/Documents/Pubs/348-106_CertificateofExemption.pdf

 

It's the official Washington State dept. of health form. When I filled it out for my son, there was just a box to check for philosophical exemption and then I signed it. I hate the implication with this new form that I need a medical professional to educate me before I can make this decision. I don't know anyone who doesn't vaccinate that made the decision lightly... I'd be interested in the court case though. I'll see what I can find.

29 C.F.R. PART 1605—GUIDELINES ON DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE OF RELIGION

§ 1605.1 “Religious” nature of a practice or belief.
In most cases whether or not a practice or belief is religious is not at issue. However, in those cases in which the issue does exist, the Commission will define religious practices to include moral or ethical beliefs as to what is right and wrong which are sincerely held with the strength of traditional religious views. This standard was developed in United States v. Seeger, 380 U.S. 163 (1965) and Welsh v. United States, 398 U.S. 333 (1970). The Commission has consistently applied this standard in its decisions.1 The fact that no religious group espouses such beliefs or the fact that the religious group to which the individual professes to belong may not accept such belief will not determine whether the belief is a religious belief of the employee or prospective employee. The phrase “religious practice” as used in these Guidelines includes both religious observances and practices, as stated in section 701(j), 42 U.S.C. 2000e(j).
