Suit Seeks Religious Exemption From Drivers License Biometric Photo

In Cleveland County, Oklahoma, a woman has filed suit is state court seeking a religious accommodation that would allow her to obtain a driver’s license with a low resolution photograph instead of the state-required high-resolution photo that captures biometric data.  The complaint (full text = PDF) in Beach v. Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, (OK Dist. Ct., Sept. 21, 2011), says that plaintiff has learned that the required photographs are in a format required by the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization, and will be placed in a database shared by various jurisdictions.  Plaintiff alleges that she has a sincerely held religious belief that the Bible, in Revelation 13:16-18 and 14:9-11 (passages dealing with the mark of the beast): “explicitly commands believers to not participate  in a global numbering identification system using the number of man, and eternally condemns participation in that system.”
