Losing My Religion

This one’s coming out of Britain. Not only do I have to take off my shoes, leave behind my bottled water and chapstick, now they want to know my religious affiliation as well? The Times wrote on August 15:

The passenger-profiling technique involves selecting people who are behaving suspiciously, have an unusual travel pattern or, most controversially, have a certain ethnic or religious background.

Seriously, this must be the wet dream of every upright security screener: sorting the herd by ethnicity and religion, not just this dull random nonsense. Why not throw in the credit score as well, to make it more interesting?

“We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Ha!
