    EEOC Sues Consol Energy and Consolidation Coal Company for Religious Discrimination
    Mining Companies Forced Evangelical Christian to Retire Over Hand Scanning, Federal Agency Charges

    http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/9-25-13d.cfm

    "[Beverly Butcher] wrote the mining superintendent and human resources manager a letter explaining the relationship between hand-scanning technology and the Mark of the Beast and antichrist discussed in the Book of Revelation of the New Testament and requesting an exemption from the hand scanning based on his religious beliefs. The mining companies refused to consider alternate means of tracking Butcher's time and attendance, such as allowing him to submit manual time records as he had done previously or reporting to his supervisor, even though the mining company had made similar exceptions to the hand scanning for two employees with missing fingers."

    This is not the mark of the beast; not even close. It is not a case of religious discrimination. This dude was nothing but a misinformed religious nut case.

    This isn't the mark. It's just part of the conditioning process. Still good to see someone with enough gumption to stand up for what they believe in in Amerika. I imagine most Christians will be upset with this person because he preferred standing up to laying down.

    Ah! You almost got me. Just about took the time to actually read what Poncho said. But he's been exceptionally busy overnight, and I actually read some of it before realizing what a monumental waste of time it is. And I considered the source of this comment and saved myself the regret.
