Friend of mine who is a Christian, did a 12 month tour in Iraq in a combat unit had this to say:
First of all I respect his opinion and appreciate his service.
Second, I disagree that Trijicon should not be required to take it off. They obviously have that option, but the option also lies with he government to not purchase any more or replace them. They (most likely) saw completed versions of the sights before they bought them and didn't have a problem.
His point of view is unique and much more "first hand informed" than mine, but if we are helping them (and GIVING them equipment for free!) why should we pander to their sensibilities? From my perspective we are supporting them, they are not supporting us. They need us, not the other way around.
Why would us expressing our religion (as he seems to imply we are) be stabbing them in the back?
If he needed a Muslim's help would he be offended if they prayed in front of him?
I know this wasn't you talking, just general questions.
