2) Thats a really ominous statement. Would your position make using coercion to inhibit religion justifiable?

It entirely depends on what the parent had in mind. If he means outlawing religious freedom, then I would be against it. If by limits he meant that a religious group should not have the power to enforce its beliefs upon society in general, then I am completely for it.

If they can push this tech to the point where we see it in Total Recall (the original, haven't seen the remake so don't know if it is in there). I would absolutely love it, I would be thrilled to be able to go through airport security that quickly, YIPPEEE!!!!

Besides, I can't really see how anybody would be either offended by or excited by these images... I mean seriously I know there are strange psychopathic individuals out there, but then are they really any different the the strange psychopathic individuals excited by shoes, socks, mud, etc...
