School lunch scanner gives children mark of The Beast
Says parent Mamie Sonnier, sounding not a little like Annie Wilkes.
“I was very, very mad. Disappointed.”
She, like all parents at the school, had received a letter explaining the introduction of a palm vein scanner, to speedily identify students qualifying for a free school meal . Says Sonnier:
“As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff. I know where it’s going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast. I’m not going to let my kids have that.”
School principal Charles Caldarera is sympathetic:
“I think some people feel it’s something with the Bible, mark of the beast. It’s technology that is used throughout our lives. Everywhere.”
