Government sues mining company over ‘mark of the beast’ hand-scanning biometrics technology

24 sec read

Objections to the use of biometric hand-scanning technology forced a 35-year veteran miner into early retirement. Now, the US government is suing the company for breaking the man’s freedom of religion.

A Pennsylvania mining company sued by the federal government on behalf of a worker who refused a biometric handscan because he believes in the Bible’s mark of the beast prophecy, said on Thursday that it supports religious freedom.

The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission filed a lawsuit against Consul Energy Inc, stating that Beverly Butcher Jr. had worked at the company’s coal mine in Mannington, West Virginia, for more than 35 years, until he was required to use a biometric hand scanner to track his hours.
