    I did a search, sorry if this is a DB. This strikes me as really odd with resect to seperation of church and state. Does someone really want a bible verse on a weapon?


    U.S. military officials have launched an investigation after it was revealed coded Bible passages have been inscribed on high-powered rifle sights being used in Afghanistan and Iraq.
    The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers.

    Lawyer and former air force officer Michael Weinstein said the inscriptions play into the hands of those who say the U.S. is on a 'crusade' against Islam.

    Is that a five or a six?

    2 Corinthians 4:6
    For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,"[a]made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

    We are so fucking stupid, sometimes. Inexplicably.

    I own one of that company's scopes. Never noticed the Bible quotation until I read that story yesterday.

    That's some high-powered gospel spreading.

    So I should shoot Jesus in the face?

    I thought this thread was going to be about some Bible verse that advocated the possession of guns by the citizenry ... seriously.

    I think it was Paul who said we should put on the armor of God and carry some heavy duty firepower.

    Nope, the opposite. It was about some guns that advocate the bible for its citizenry.

    "Jesus loves me, this I know.
    For the rifle tells me so.
    Little ones to him belong.
    Pull the trigger, then they're gone."

    Turn the other cheek. And if that doesn't work, blast the shit out of him.
