Antimatter: HindiDiscoMonster: hinten: Student makes all the right decision for all the wrong reasons." It is a direct violation of their Christian religious beliefs, as it bears a striking resemblance to Revelations 13: 16-18 warning of the Mark of the Beast."What is wrong about the reasons? Those are her beliefs. Doesn't matter if she is right or wrong. We are supposed to have religious freedom right? So if she should not base her decision on her beliefs, what should she do... base them on someone else' beliefs?It entirely misses the point of the mark of the beast though. It was a way of telling those who supported rome from those who didn't.
wingnut396: dittybopper: serial_crusher: dittybopper: You are required to attend school by law, and if the school you must attend requires that you to enter a metal detector as a condition for attending, then that is a violationHow do you feel about metal detectors in courthouses? People aren't going there voluntarily, whether they're there in police custody or just attending jury duty; but I think there's enough history of witnesses, judges, jurors being gunned down on courthouse steps (well, it happens all the time on TV anyhow) to say that maybe your 2nd and 4th amendments should be bent a little in that particular location.With the exception of those who are under criminal indictment, which does temporarily suspend some of their rights, entrance into a court is strictly voluntary.I know, because as a foster parent I attend court on a semi-regular basis. I've no problem going through the metal detector there, because it's voluntary for me and for all the employees and other witnesses, and it's a very narrow exception that is tailored to address a very specific governmental function.Or jury duty, or subpoena, or court order, or i'm sure some internet lawyers could produce other examples when you are not under criminal indictment when you are order to appear in court.
dittybopper: JinxofSpades: She should also be concerned about walking around on campus, anyway. Those cards are probably using 13.56MHz RFID, and will require the students to be constantly bombarded with high frequency wavesThey are already bombarded with 14.000 to 14.350 MHz waves, pretty much continuously. In fact, I'm bombarding people near me with 14.027 MHz waves right now, with an EIRP of about 250 watts.CQ CQ CQ DE N2-SOMETHING-SOMETHING-SOMETHING
dittybopper: wingnut396: Whatever. Know what happens if I refuse to wear my RFID badge at work?You aren't required by law to attend work. If you have a problem with wearing an RFID, you can either work somewhere else, or just not work. School isn't like that. Schooling is *MANDATORY*, and very few people have the time and resources to home school their kids.
