    This is an interesting article. I had no idea. Did you?



    I'm sure this is not the only company to do this sort of thing.In fact, I know that In-N-Out Burger prints similar references/messages on all of their cups.

    Does anyone know of any other examples? What are your thoughts on Trijicon's practice of stamping it's sights with Biblical references?

    Me, I'm not overly concerned or bothered by it, I just found it interesting.

    As far as the average afghan recruit knows or cares, it is just random gibberish.

    I find it weird and disturbing, not because they ad the message, it just seems the company isn't reading its own material.

    It is not part of the specification, and they shouldn't do that.

    And in that region, there have been problems with coerced westernization. Think the Sepoy Mutiny. And it is one of the reasons the Afghans faught the Xsovs for so long, is the Xsovs pulled the same kind of stuff.

    As long as it doesn't bother the recruits, it is just a weird and silly thing.

    No, really! This story is to absurd not to be real.

    U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes

    Probably nothing about loving your enemies, though.

    "Take your son, your only son – yes, Isaac, whom you love so much – and go to the land of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will point out to you."
    Genesis 22:1-18

    Let me tell you, that God had a "sense of humor". At the last moment as Abraham was going to stab his son, God said, "Wait, I was just kidding. It was a prank. Don't do it".

    "Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.
    Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT

    Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood. Jeremiah 48:10 NAB

    The Bible is so violent and the blood? You're soaking in it.

    "There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends."

    That is the part many choose not to understand

    And how about allowing evil to reign and sitting back and doing nothing? :evil:

    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

    I may not a agree, but I believe in the freedom to do so as a private company.

    Jesus rifles and Blackwater/Xe

    This, people, is why 9/11 happened : neocolonialism, aggressive foreign policies and choosing sides in a holy war.

    Thank you for all the American you're getting killed.
