Support Our Troops … with Magic!
Deep in the shit and need a little extra protection? Recite a magical verse. No, this isn’t D&D, it’s the army. Trijicon, a company in Michigan with a muli-million dollar contract with the Marine Corp, has provide rifle sights inscribed with Bible verses to give soldiers the little extra edge:
“Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the United States military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found. “
No words on whether they were issued 10 sided dice to help them make tough decisions.
There’s a bit of a discrepancy on whether or not the army was aware that Trijicon was putting the verses on the sights. Spokespeople say no:
“Spokespeople for the U.S. Army and the Marine Corps both said their services were unaware of the biblical markings. ”
But, members of the military seem to be well aware of them:
“Weinstein, an attorney and former Air Force officer, said many members of his group who currently serve in the military have complained about the markings on the sights. He also claims they’ve told him that commanders have referred to weapons with the sights as “spiritually transformed firearm[s] of Jesus Christ.” “
I’m guessing someone’s lying.
Christians are like animals that always have to mark their territory. Only I’d prefer pee to Bible verses.
