Young Jewish Woman’s Religious Liberty Violated by State’s Biometric Demands - Is this the Mark of the Beast?
Victoria is a thirty year-old New Yorker fighting for a Religious Exemption so she is not forced to be photographed on her driver’s license. She believes any photograph, especially biometric, is diametrically opposed to her Biblical religious convictions and breaks the second commandment.
Months ago, Victoria was given a NY Religious Affirmation form (DMV 1520). She was told this form would allow a driver’s license without a picture. Victoria completed the paperwork, but it was rejected without explanation and told to contact the Albany, NY DMV legal staff. She did. No response.
She asked NY State Senator, James Seward for assistance. He was told the Religious Affirmation document, the form had been voided and New York’s religious exemption program was ended.
Victoria’s Rabbi spoke to a DMV high legal authority who explicitly stated that Victoria’s hopes for a religious exemption were fruitless because the biometric photograph on the driver’s license “ties into the banking system and you won’t be able to buy and sell without it.”
Is this the Mark of the Beast? Victoria says: “People don’t really understand how serious this Real ID 2020 is. There is no privacy with biometric photographs and facial recognition.Her Rabbi stated, “This is a slow electronic holocaust. Keep the Torah. Don’t get on the train.”
Senator Seward recently wrote Senate Bill S 4094 to reinstate New York’s Religious Affirmation Form. Please contact Transportation Committee Chair Timothy M. Kennedy (D) 518 455 2426 and voice your support of this bill.
