Skip to comments.TRIJICON: "ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIER!"
Posted on 01/21/2010 2:22:42 PM PST by Edisto Joe
According to an article by the AP, Muslim groups are pissed off about defense contractor Trijicon using Biblical reference codes in their serial numbers for their tactical gun sights they sell to the military.
Muslim groups reacted angrily Wednesday after it emerged that the U.S. military is using combat rifle sights inscribed with coded Biblical references.....
Markings on the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, which is standard issue to U.S. special operations forces, include "JN8:12," a reference to John 8:12: "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life,'" according to the King James version of the Bible.
There is no clever conspiracy or marketing ploy here and I choose to believe the company is sincere in their answer but you can be sure this will be making it's way to the ACLU before it's all over. How dare you invoke the word of the Lord on your weapons! My answer is simple..."Onward Christian Soldier."

Okay, how about replacing it with Deus Vult!
Muslims supposedly believe Jesus was a great prophet. So no way should they mind.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
I have been close with this company for years and although I did not hear it direct from the owner, I can almost guarantee the messages, all having to due with “Light” has one direction... Because of their Tritium powered lighted Reticles for low light engagements...
Because of this I will definitely be putting Trijicon Tritium Night Sights on my brand new Glock 21 SF .45 Tactical Combat pistol.
Have any of these upset Muslims seen a U.S. Dollar Bill?
Pardon me! Maybe our troops should use these guns to salute enemy fighters! /sarc
Im buying Trijicon products for my Ruger SP101 and Kahr CW9 tomorrow morning.
I’ll be looking at a couple of their scopes for my AR’s this week.
If the muzzys hate it they it must be great!!!!!
I seriously believe that the muslims want to destroy us and our religion, and we are blindly denying it in the name of political correctness.
Billions of dollars worth of advertising. Brilliant!!
Thanks to Muzzies and other haters.
It wasnt some idiot muzzie who kicked up this fuss, it was MICHAEL WEINSTEIN, from the very dishonestly named, Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
Many parts of his dishonest page distract from his actual aim (war on Christians); seeing all these aged Constitution scrolls and other Americana you half expect that Ben Franklin will stroll out with buckle shoes, powdered wig, and half-moon glasses, but I asssssuuuure you he is all about stamping on the bibles of US military people:
He was a USAF J.A.G. puke who worked of all people for Ronald Reagan, then made some bucks in the private sector suing folks for Ross Perot. Then he retired at from 2006 and has for the past 4 years been waging Secular Jihad against men who treacherously fight muslim folks who throw acid on girls and say Jews are monkeys (dont ask me).
Sounds crazy huh? Hes overweight, ugly, angry, and other bad stuff things you can see from the news broadcast clips he has at his website:
Yes, while we are out trying to head off Armageddon or widespread terror, this guy chooses to focus on stuff thats written on rifles —amazing, isn’t it?
I do not understand what drives this incredibly deluded, zeppelin-like REMF’ing insect.
