This amusing bit of wingnuttery is almost too silly to even bother wasting your time, Dear Reader, but perhaps you don’t (yet) know how crazy the wingnuts get (and these clinically insane people get to vote!)
Normally I might defend privacy, especially the right not to have big brother tracking our every move. But of course we do have some issues of balancing security, especially now in our schools. In this article a junior wingnutter decided that tracking her movements by an RFID tag in school violated her religious principles since obviously the tracker itself was the “mark of the beast.” Are you kidding me? Seriously?
So I say this, undoubtedly you even get this whole idea of the “beast” from the literal reading of the ravings of the drug-addled Revelations, so show me exactly where in than text the physics of RFID tags is explained and how trackers work and precisely, not some hand-waving horse hockey, this proves this is the sign of the beast.
And the courts actually listened to these crazies. What’s next, Santa Claus is the anti-christ (not so unlikely given that xmas has absolutely nothing to do with xtianity and is an old Roman pagan ritual, so FauxNews is defending a day to celebrate now obsolete gods).
