Microchips of the Beast

Only in America could a bill be passed that prohibits the involuntary implantation of microchips in people on the basis that such devices might someday be used as the “mark of the beast” described in the Book of Revelation.

“My understanding — I’m not a theologian — but there’s a prophecy in the Bible that says you’ll have to receive a mark, or you can neither buy nor sell things in end times,” Virginia Republican Mark Cole said. “Some people think these computer chips might be that mark.”

The funniest part of that is the apparently deep concern of “some people” about possibly being unable to conduct commercial enterprises in the after-life.

    Glad to read that they’ve finally addressed this pressing issue. Hopefully they’ll take up my proposal to restrict flying monkeys to semi-automatic weapons. I realize that there are currently no flying monkeys, I’m not a zoologist, but if and when we do get flying monkeys they should not own fulll auto weapons.
