The Denver Post endorses the infamous Graham/Schumer biometric ID card:
A bipartisan proposal, pitched by Sens. Charles Schumer and Lindsey Graham, to require biometric Social Security cards has the potential to remedy those problems. Such a credential would include an identifier, such as a fingerprint, to positively connect the card to the person presenting it.
I am still hoping the Senator Graham, once one of my beau ideals, will renounce this anti-liberty idea right away. This recent article in Cleveland.com seems to say no or not yet.
Is this the Mark of the Beast? It certainly is the essential step in that direction. Don’t take my word for it: John W. Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute says much the same in this article in the Huffington Post.
Whitehead says that in 1981 Ronald Reagan rejected a similar idea as smacking of the Mark of the Beast. He concludes with these chilling words:
The time to resist is now. If we don’t, eventually, we will all have to possess one of these cards in order to be a functioning citizen in American society. Failing to have a biometric card will render you a non-person for all intents and purposes. Your whole life will depend on this card–your ability to work, travel, buy, sell, access health care, and so on.
What we used to call science fiction is now reality. And whether a national ID card is the mark of the Beast or the long arm of Big Brother, the outcome remains the same.
So I now say let’s try this: Let’s call it the Mark of the Beast. We know it is not the actual mark but it is a precursor of this fearful idea from the future. I suggest that every Bible-believing Christian in South Carolina send an email to and if in person confront (respectfully! Always with respect for the office!) Senator Graham and ask him to renounce this idea.
Why take away the liberties of Americans to stop illegal immigration? There is a better way: Enforce the law and secure the border. We must not demonize Hispanics in any way. But we can do what’s right without hurting people because of their ethnic background. Let’s start with this ID card. Deep six it. Kill it. Make it so politically odious that no one will support it. Call the Biometric ID Card was it is: the Mark of the Beast. If you live in SC, tell Senator Graham how you feel.
