There are lots of things to dislike about driver’s license photos, but one Oklahoma woman has taken the disdain to a new level, claiming having to take one or give a fingerprint violates her religious freedom.
There are lots of things to dislike about driver’s license photos, but one Oklahoma woman has taken the disdain to a new level, claiming being forced to provide a high resolution photo and fingerprints violates her religious freedom.
She asserts that the biometric requirements are the dawn of the mark of the beast, and she says she can prove it.
On her latest trip to the DMV she refused to provide any of her identifying images, so they refused to give her a license.
Small price to pay, she says, to defend her religious rights. She further explained her position as, “The bottom line for me as a Christian was that I believe that the Bible clearly warns us against being enrolled in a global system of identification and financial control that ties to our bodies.”
That doesn’t mean she’s given up on the issue. She’s hired an attorney and according to expert outsiders she may have a legit case.
The suit filed points out that the DMV’s failure to “accommodate” her position is denying her the ability to use a debit card, get a prescription, or rent a post office box.
