Ed Stetzer has written a passionate plea to resist the full-body scans and the invasive pat-downs that the TSA is now demanding for those who fly.
Read it. He makes a lot of sense.
He gives four reasons why the searches are wrong.
He also makes three suggestions for action.
- We should, if possible, not fly and then tell the airlines that the TSA searches are the reason.
- We should opt out of the full-body scans if you must fly. You will then be “patted down” in the most personal way, but he suggests this is better than the virtual naked pictures of what he calls “virtual strip search machines.”
- We should call our Senators to get them acting. The house passed a ban on these as primary screening tools, but the Senate did not act.
His response is measured and reasonable. Worth reading anyway.
