Company to Remove Bible References From Combat Rifles

Company to Remove Bible References From Combat Rifles - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

WASHINGTON A Michigan defense contractor will voluntarily stop stamping references to Bible verses on combat rifle sights sold to the U.S. military, a major buyer of the company's gear.

In a statement released Thursday, Trijicon of Wixom, Mich., says it also providing to the armed forces free of charge modification kits to remove the Scripture citations from the telescoping sights already in use. The Marine Corps has purchased more than 200,000 Trijicon sights and the Army has bought about 100,000.

The references raised concerns the citations break a government rule that bars proselytizing by American troops

So, what if the contractor has now "violated" Federal Regs?

We are going to spend a ton of taxpayer money to retool with another manufacturer??

Over some wording on a piece of aluminum??

You can shoot at me, just don't shoot at me with a religious reference on your boomstick.

Seriously?!?!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot over?!?!

Next I suppose that all the soldiers will have to turn in all religious icons, cross over all tattoo's with religious implications, etc., etc.,etc.....

Way to effing go ABC. You are a giant bunch of douches!

This is just more typical CAIR B.S. Why do we even listen to these people anymore?

Let me get this straight...

It is okay for the Muslim extremists to be conducting a holy war against the U. S. of A, but not okay for a scope to have a cryptic scripture reference? I mean, some of you (I believe J.D?) mentioned that you own some of these products and never even noticed the inscriptions until this story was brought up!

Give me a fu*king break.....

As a bit of humor to deflect my anger, it isn't likely that those sheep fu*kers will ever get their hands on one of these scopes to begin with. And even if they did, they're so stupid from being a bi-product of their fathers knocking up his own daughters and sisters and their blind observance to some radical jihad that is is unlikely they will ever understand the writings anyway.


edit...You know something? They're right. Any way you slice it, we are in a holy war. We're fighting a holy war that was brought upon us. But this isn't an ordinary Christian crusade. This is a big can of "Holy $hit" being poured right down the throats of those mother effers for having the balls (or lack of brains) to think that they can push us around and live to tell about it. Whats the phrase? Oh yea. War is Hell.......

I think this PC bull$hit stems from the enemy with-in our own country.

The sad truth is that I do not believe that any of the framers of the Constitution were of the Muslim persuasion, although, I think Jefferson was a democrat.
