West Virginia Offers Licenses For Those Who Fear the "Beast"

Click to Read

West Virginia Offers Licenses For Those Who Fear the "Beast" West Virginia started Friday keeping driver's license photos out of a computer database for members of a small religious group who believe digital storage is a "mark of the beast" that evokes biblical prophecy. State DMV Commissioner Joseph Cicchirillo said the group of about 50 or 60 Christians, who are not affiliated with a particular church, contacted the agency two or three years ago to object to their pictures "being on a database that can be exchanged throughout the world or hacked into."

BIG BROTHER wants your finger print, facial recognition, eye-print, hand print. Pretty soon, there'll be a computer chip embedded inside your intestines from the food you buy and eat which will track your every move . . . and movement . . . upon the face of the earth. And . . . then . . . the . . . end . . . will . . . be . . . near!

The "mark of the beast" huh? That's what I call my cat scratch marks. I had no idea it was of such religious significance. Are my cats the anti-christ? It's possible.

How does West Virginia hold these people to any standard of legitimacy if they don't belong to any particular denomination? Can anyone go there, claim to hold a religious belief, and have it honored? I could see this being helpful to terrorists, criminals and underage drinkers.
