Skip to comments.Va. House OKs ban on implanted tracking devices (Out of "privacy concerns and religious prophecy")

The Virginia House of Delegates has passed a bill that would ban the forced implantation of tracking devices in people, with supporters citing both privacy concerns and religious prophecy.
Del. Mark Cole says the bill means no one could be required to wear a tracking implant as a condition of employment or by insurers.
Most people objected chiefly on privacy reasons -- the fear of their whereabouts being electronically pinpointed at all times -- and long-term health concerns.
But Cole said some had religious objections, including those rooted in Christian teachings of an Antichrist who would compel followers to wear "the mark of the beast."
Del. David Englin, who's Jewish, also noted that some Or

Either way, you can’t subvert prophecy.
Very good, I like that. Not God's prophets, that's for sure.
Read in history where some religious sect (I think it was the Seventh Day Adventists) said that social security numbers were the mark of the beast ... when SS was first implemented ....
While there could be considerable advantages to implementing RFID or GPS trackers inside people, the privacy and security loss is just too staggering to contemplate if the technology is misused.

Human microchips seen by some in Virginia House as device of antichrist
I think I remember reading something like that as well. I've also heard credit and credit cards are the mark of the beast.
I’m thinking that those far out religious sects see any number attached to anything you need or use is the MOTB .....
That sounds about right.
Now let them pass a law that negates the feds from tracking your location on a cell phone whenever they want to .

And don’t forget the Bar Code system which to me seems the most likely. A barcode tatooed on your head or hand. However it is my belief that it will be something that you absolutely accept with full knowledge of what you are allowing. If you refuse...off with your head. Gee I wonder who will be in charge of that kind of operation?
I’d like to put this thing in a long list of sex offenders.
What does 0 know about bar codes?
I, for one, am more than happy to deal with the Antichrist knowing the end result is reunion with my Heavenly Father.
Should be allowed for convicted criminals whose crime is of the type that warrants physical tracking. Child molesters, rapists, muggers, murderers, home invaders, car jackers, etc — yep, I want the government to know where you are. Don’t want to have a tracking device implanted in you? No problem, just don’t commit any of those crimes.
I remember many years ago I was watching Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s show out of morbid fascination — sometimes those giant fake eyelashes and tear-soaked mascara streaks just grabbed me as I was flipping channels :-) Anyway, they had some kooky guest on who was peddling his conclusion (these people always seem to have firm conclusions, never theories) about the bar codes which were beginning to proliferate on retail packages. He could PROVE that they were the mark of the Beast because if you looked closely, you could see the same pair of lines repeated at the beginning, middle, and end of every bar code, and if you looked even closer, you’d notice that these were mysteriously the only pairs of lines that didn’t have a number printed under them, AND that these pairs of lines looked just like the ones that had a “6” printed under them. So Christians should fight the use of these bar codes, refuse to buy things that have bar codes on them, yadda yadda. Uh huh. To this day, the “secret”, unmarked pairs of lines are still there — because they’re the start/stop codes that enable the scanner to know when to start/stop recording the actual number associated with the item, and confirm that what it’s registering is an actual bar code and not some random marks.
I carry my SS card with the number blacked out ... if they want it I can tell them otherwise if my purse is stolen they won’t have that number ...
