And all the world marveled and followed The Beast
I’m not one for quoting scripture. I’m way more likely to quote Maynard James Keenan than any of the apostles.
Now, having disclaimed, I’m going to quote some scripture. Heaven forgive me…
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark […] and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
He, in this verse is of course The Beast or, “the great Satan, his’self.” Now, if I were the religious type, I’d be pretty pissed about being handed this number at birth without my approval.
