Off The Record: On Religion, Politics & Equality
If it had been lunchtime when I heard this story, I would have lost it.
Trijicon is a Michigan weapons company that currently is manufacturing rifle scopes with Bible verse references on them. Sweet isn’t it? Maybe crafting them for an upcoming church social/gun show or some such thing.
If that’s what you think you are oh so totally wrong.
They are manufacturing these scopes for ye olde US Government folks. That’s right, the same brave men and women that are fighting to protect us from (among many other things) an official religion, well, you get my drift.
Along with the sight’s stock nunber, there are coded Bible passages engraved on the sights. For example, how’s about a little JN8:12? Referring, of course to John 8:12which reads “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Thank God we aren’t involved in a war against Muslim militants where we are seeking to win the hearts and minds of the common folk, the regular Muslim people of Afghanistan or Iraq. That would be a huge mista…..what? We are in a war with such nations?
You can bet your sweet bippy I am going to be stopping by Congressman Thaddeus McCotter’s while I am in DC this week. Mr. McCotter represents the community where Trijicon is located.
I suggest you do the same. Or if you can’t be in DC why not contact your local congressperson? I am sure they would love to help. Find them here.
