The lawsuits seem to be easy ways to get rich:

In 2015, the EEOC won an award of nearly $600,000 on behalf of West Virginia coal miner Beverly Butcher Jr., a devout evangelical Christian who had retired under protest several years earlier rather than submit to biometric hand scanning. The newly implemented system required workers to scan their right hands when checking in or out of a shift as a way to track their hours.

According to court documents, Butcher believes the "mark of the beast" brands followers of the Antichrist. Fearing the hand-scanning system would "mark" him if he used either hand, the miner offered to check in with his shift supervisor or to punch in on a time clock.


Not sure how they won. It's a condition of working there. You are not being "marked".

At what point can we just tell people some of this shiat is stupid and you're stupid for actually believing it? I'm so tired of being ruled by a moronic minority.

Also, apparently his name is Beverly.  I wonder if he also believes cameras steal your soul?

I remember when I was a kid -- a foul-mouthed one, as most of us shiat disturbers were in that neighbourhood -- some other kid heard me swear and decided to helpfully inform me that every time I swore, I put a needle in God's heart.

I told him to fark off.

I can't for the life of me understand how that system would work with a bunch of coal miners who would be leaving a complete streak of coal dust on the scanner, that would have to be cleaned off, each and every time they used it.

I don't mind people doing random weird things as a group since that's culture.  I'm not even going to be mad at the Swedes for making Cotton Eyed Joe.  But this is an arbitrary belief that was created for no other purpose than to be a dick.

I get that one more. You could track employees in some other manner if you had to.

Can you do background checks without fingerprints? Probably. But it's more of a headache than clocking in and out, which can be done without biometrics.

The religious angle is dumb, but I'm not entirely against employees protesting being tracked by their biometrics.

They won because if this is the case I'm thinking about, they made exceptions for injured miners. So by refusing to accommodate a religious belief they already accommodated for other employees means it's a case of religious discrimination.

If they did not offer the accomodations, the guy would have been shiat out of luck though.

You can fake clocking in and out - give your number and PIN to a buddy.
You can't fake handprints.

And if there's a mine collapse, knowing exactly who is underground is pretty damned important.

Only in Murica could this crap win in court. The guy should have been sent to a mental hospital.
 
2021-07-22 3:11:56 PM  
A Consol Energy human resources supervisor responded by giving Butcher a letter from the scanner's manufacturer that said the device cannot detect or place a mark on someone's body. The letter also said that because the mark of the beast is associated only with the right hand or the forehead, using the left hand would be sufficient to avoid any religious concerns.


haha...dumbass didn't think someone would follow-up on their bullshait "religious freedoms" excuse.

If it's taking hand prints, wouldn't those have been placed on him by god?  If so, he's calling god a beast. That's either heresy or, if "The Beast" is his name for god, taking the lord's name in vain. Either way, we should probably stone him just to be sure.

So... when do we get serious and stop humoring them? Not just talking about the conservative Christians either, PC goes way too far, to the point that Tommy Chong did more time for selling bongs than someone who stopped the democratic process of the US to kill the second in command of the US to install a fascist dictator.

Humans make no sense to me. Practically none of you are capable of thinking out what at least a large part of the conclusions may be to any given problem, and picking from them what is most likely if you go certain ways.

My conclusion from what is happening: We will not have open and fair elections in 2028 and will be a full on Banana Republic.

Does he have a Minnesota drivers licence?
I ask because being finger printed is a requirement.
Former Military?
Government employee?  I could keep going.

There is no reasonable accommodation for a fingerprint.

If it was OK then, it is OK now.
Sorry Christian scammer, no money for you if I am on the jury.

There are many civilian jobs that most people would not think of that require fingerprinting, and background checks, at the very least.
I've been fingerprinted (full set) more times than I have fingers. Retina/ facial recognition scanned twice.

The last time this happened, I worked for a company that had a overseas shipment seized by customs and I had to have access to a secured area at a U.S. Customs facility.

That's not new or unique to America. The central component to Christianity is that your feelings are more important than anything else. Kill 9 kids but feel sorry about it? That's ok, you're going to heaven because feelings > actions. Spend 80 years feeding orphans but you don't feel the right way towards Jesus? Then off to hell you go. The whole Protestant Reformation was because low end guys wanted their feelings to matter just as much as the Pope's.

I'm not fan of religion but that is a shiatty hot take of the Protestant Reformation. The reformers spread throughout Europe had most completely valid issues with the state of the Catholic Church. That sociopath Henry VIII's actions was not the whole of the Reformation.

It also says it was a newly implemented system so Im guessing he had the job and they decided to add this in well after he started working there.
