      Greek protesters decry ‘mark of the beast’ ID Cards
      The Associated Press
      6/2/2011

      ATHENS — More than 2,000 Orthodox Christian
      fundamentalists have gathered at Syntagma Square
      in central Athens to protest at a government plan
      to issue new electronic ID cards that would include biometric data.

      The protesters charge that the state aims at
      tighter control over its citizens and many
      believe that the design of the cards includes the
      number 666, the “Number of the Beast” described in the Book of Revelation.

      Hundreds of Orthodox priests and monks and a few
      dozen members of far right groups have joined the demonstrators.

      The protest has been peaceful except for a brief
      altercation with motorists when the protesters tried to block traffic.

      Religious fundamentalists have held protests over
      new-type ID cards since the 1990s, but the cards have not yet materialized.
