Louisiana Parents Fear Elementary School Cafeteria Scanner Will Implant the Antichrist’s ‘Mark of the Beast’ on Kids’ Hands

KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Some parents of students at a Louisiana elementary school fear that new palm scanning technology that will make the cafeteria serving process more efficient will imprint their children with the Antichrist’s Mark of the Beast, signifying the Biblical End Times as prophesied in the Book of Revelation.

KPLC reports that the scanners, which are scheduled to be installed at Moss Bluff Elementary School in Moss Bluff, have caused alarm among Christian parents who believe that the spread of the Mark of the Beast, or 666, is a sign of the End Times.

The Mark and its consequences are described in the Book of Revelations:

“If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath.” -Revelation 14:9,10

According to the Bible, the Antichrist, a great deceiver controlled by Satan who seems like Jesus Christ but really seeks to deny salvation, will force everyone to be implanted with the Mark of the Beast:

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” -Revelation 13:16-17

“As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff,” Moss Bluff parent Mamie Sonnier told KPLC. “I know where it’s going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast. I’m not going to let my kids have that.”

Moss Bluff Principal Charles Caldarera defended the scanners, saying they will reduce cafeteria errors.

“We are so large,” Caldarera told KPLC. “With an elementary school, they all come through line, and most of them eat here. It would make us more efficient and more accurate. We’ve had parents complain in the past, because they felt like their children weren’t eating, that we assigned them a charge for the day, and they might have been right.”

Caldarera says parents can opt their kids out of the scanners if they object to them in any way.

“We sent this letter home for parents to be aware of it, and to let them know that they can opt out,” he said. “They can opt out and say, hey, I don’t want my child involved in it. That’s quite alright. It won’t make any difference. The children will still be able to eat in the cafeteria.”

The scanners are causing controversy, and they haven’t even been installed yet. Sonnier said she would probably withdraw her children from Moss Bluff Elementary if they are.

“I’d probably pull them out of the school, and transfer them to another school,” she told KPLC.

Caldarera said school officials are trying to install the scanners as soon as possible.

    Afraid this just makes these parents look silly. Its a scanner not a tattooing machine. On this basis none of these parents or their children will ever have a medical scan for any reason… going to be dying of undiagnosed cancers then?

    Their children are hopefully up to date with technology and will be able to tell their parents the difference.

    Of course if these parents have so little trust in the school that they chose, support and pay for, then maybe they should go quietly away and lock themselves in the cellar for fear of imagined nonsense creeping up behind them!

      “…dying of undiagnosed cancers…” It happens. See: “faith healing.”

    Dumb, just use the left hand then. Besides, Reading the text, the relevant part is “If anyone worships the beast and his image…” ‘IF’, not, “Anyone with the mark…etc” Fancy even thinking of taking the kids from the school over this. I’m OK with people’s beliefs, having been both sides of the fence, but sometimes I think they look for problems.

    These people are criminally stupid. Someone should take their kids away–they are NOT fit to bring up children.
