Posted on 01/21/2010 10:30:35 PM PST by myknowledge
UPDATE: THE Federal Government has ordered the defence department to look at ways of removing biblical references on gunsights used by special forces troops in Afghanistan.
The American maker of the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, a Michigan based company called Trijicon, stamps Biblical references next to the serial number of all of its military gunsights.
The references include "2COR4:6,'' a reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament.
The passage in part reads: "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.''

What's all the fuss about biblical gunsights?
M4A1 carbine with ACOG.
I would buy one for my son or daughter to use as a private citizen. I bought gun oil and had it shipped to me in SEA many years ago.....
some how they just dont get it.. dumb...
And is there a poet left on earth? (outside of scandanavian-metal songwriters lol).
forget the scopes , stamp Templar Crosses on the bullets
Personally I would love to get one of the scopes with the scripture references stamped on it.
Markings included "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.
The Trijicon Reflex sight is stamped with 2COR4:6, a reference to part of the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians: "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ," the King James version reads.
I’ve heard the snipers in Iraq call the scopes on the 50 BMGs “God scopes”.
...And muslim facists around the world using the tools liberal democrats have taught them are using this and many other like issues to FAKE being insulted so as to be constant victims. Works like a charm. They cut off innocent peoples heads, blow up buildings, murder in the name of their god and target innocents for simply not believing as they do and THEY ARE OFFENDED. Um, find me the Christians who do this, the Kews, the Buddhists or any other religion that does this.
Heard on a local radio show talking about this that the manufacturer (Trijicon) had used Bibilical messages as part of the serial numbers for EVERYTHING. Not just gun sights...EVERYTHING. Given that it’s just a tiny sequence of alphanumeric characters...why the fuss?
I have a TA31F ACOG with the red chevron.
ABC(?) “news” is also complicite, but what do you expect from an organization that would rather MUCKRAKE than disseminate information. A real coup with lots of American blood on their hands. And they’ll never acknowledge or accept responsibility for it. Well, soon they will be extinct like all the other dinosaurs.
The Scope Co should have said, ‘No they’re not Bible Code, they’re part of the Lot Number’.
(shush) You are not supposed to notice little things like that.
It's funny (not) that all (97%) of these 'atheists' who are suing the Government(s) over God are ... Jewish. 'Atheist' Michael Newdow is example número uno.
It doesn't fit the mystical light theme, but it's still a good verse to reference on a scope . . . .
. . . and they can put anything they want on there so long as their customers are happy. The newsies and the atheists are just trying to stir up trouble.
I hereby cast my vote for the use of SS22:43.
For Libtards, that is a reference to Second Samuel 22:43.
The scope company has acquiesced and will be removing the cites, can't blame them, they have a payroll to meet.
But maybe the controversy caused some folks to read the Bible who haven't read it before.
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, isnt it?
I do not understand what drives this incredibly deluded, zeppelin-like REMFing insect.
Michael Weinstein: Bad for Jews, Bad for the USA, Bad for risk-taking American soldiers
I doubt any muzzies would have known at all about this until the JEWISH atheist lawyer made such a big stink about it.
And you're right he is a despicable puke & piece of garbage. May God reward him richly according to his EVIL deeds. The Bible also clearly states that "At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow & every tongue confess that He is Lord". Michael Weinstein will be cast into the Lake of Fire, reserved for the Devil & his angels.
