Microchip Implants Chart New Territory, But Some Experts Say They Are Ethical Nightmare

(Yahoo News/Good Morning America) A vending machine software firm recently implanted about four dozen of its employees with Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) microchips that it says will allow the employees to navigate the office more conveniently. But the move has raised concerns about potential ethical and security issues.

Three Square Market, based in Riverdale, Wisconsin, said it surgically implanted the chips in about 50 volunteers on Tuesday, giving the workers the ability to make purchases, unlock doors, log into computers and perform other office functions with just the wave of a hand. The firm employs 95 workers at its Wisconsin location and has more than 200 other employees stationed around the globe.

Three Square Market’s Chief Operating Officer, Patrick McMullan, estimates that the technology will become standardized within the next decade or so, eventually allowing people use their chips for passports, public transit and various purchasing opportunities. He, too, was microchipped, and said the program was “going well” since its implementation.

    We need to campaign against the false “ease of use”, security aspect to dissuade more to not get this chip. It’s rather ironically amusing that so many people buy into this as if like an “As Seen on TV” commercial where everyone is a daft moron (could not slice a tomato, cook without burning ) before these great invention came into existence.

      I agree with the campaign; we have to stop this before it becomes standardized. If we don’t stop it now, it will be put into motion and our only way is to avoid it ourselves. We need to stand up for this in a way that draws the Lord closer to them so they will believe and be saved, and will stand with us to stop this. It’s a much larger problem than others that are in the world. If this doesn’t indicate the end is on it’s way, I can’t imagine anything that can be more obvious than this. Stand up for Christ whenever you can stand against this process!!

    This could be used or may have been used to identify Christians to s to discriminate against them. The bible does not promise us a rose garden in the last days . just look at what they did to Jesus desciples tells us that.

    It’s leading to the mark of the beast. Don’t even play with this stuff. Even if it didn’t, it is treating people like cattle, branding them like products, slaves, that sort of thing. Once they have it, they can change it from the other end. Just don’t get it.
