    No More Jesus Rifles - ABC News


    After ABC News Report, Trijicon Announces Plan to Remove Bible Codes from Gun Sights Provided to U.S. Military
    By LUIS MARTINEZ, JOSEPH RHEE and MARK SCHONE

    Trijicon, the gunsight maker that has imprinted Bible verse numbers on its scopes, has announced that it will no longer imprint the verses on the sides of scopes intended for the U.S. military, and will also provide clients with the kits to remove the Bible verse numbers from existing scopes.

    An ABC News report earlier this week revealed that the Michigan-based company, which has a contract to provide up to 800,000 scopes to the U.S. military, prints references to New Testament chapters and verses in code next to the model numbers of its scopes. The scopes are used by the U.S. Marine Corps and Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, and by U.S. allies in those countries, and for the training of Afghan and Iraqi troops.

    "Trijicon has proudly served the U.S. military for more than two decades, and our decision to offer to voluntarily remove these references is both prudent and appropriate," said Stephen Bindon, Trijicon president and CEO in a statement. "We want to thank the Department of Defense for the opportunity to work with them and will move as quickly as possible to provide the modification kits for deployment overseas."

    Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell said the Department of Defense "applauds the voluntary actions announced today by Trijicon." <more>

    What a complete tempest in a tea pot.

    You know the troops will just start greasing their bullets with pig fat now.

    While you're at it...I understand there are some lovely pictures of Mecca being nuked you could have placed in soldiers' MRE bags.

    ...do you think now maybe they'll stop yelling "ALLAH" as they set off their suicide vests in the market places of the world?

    How silly to appease religious zealots. Whether realized or not, the war with terrorism (radical Muslims) is a religious war.

    I say we engrave In God We Trust on each bullet.

    Well, the picture of one tactical nuke going off looks like pretty much any other. How could you tell?

    The Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews do.
