A local elementary school is trying to implement a new program in their cafeteria. But the palm vein scanner is being met with much opposition from Moss Bluff Elementary parents.
“I was very, very mad,” said parent Mamie Sonnier. “Disappointed.”
Many parents felt that way on Monday after reading a letter sent home with their children from Moss Bluff Elementary School. The letter introduced a new program, the palm vein scanner, to move students through the lunch line at a faster rate. With almost 1,000 students, Principal Charles Caldarera says the system will reduce errors.
Sonnier says she’s against the palm vein scanner because of her beliefs.
“As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff,” said Sonnier. “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.”
Seriously. This does not appear to be a spoof. This is deep south Louisiana. I hate to resort to a stereotype here, but just HOW do people who have these kinds of belief get through the day when the devil is in everything. I really do wonder how many parents feel this way.
My jaw is dropped. I just don’t know… I’m all for respecting people’s beliefs but at a certain point you just have to say when stuff is WACKADOODLE lunacy.
