Trijicon sights all have Bible Verses on them

Suffice it to say some people do not adhere to my understanding of the phrase separation of church and state, nor do they understand that that phrase is nowhere in the constitution.

I would not consider this the government supporting a religion, but that is just me. What is next, not buying products made by Christians?

Soooo, separation of Church and State in the military... where does that leave chaplains?

Are we demanding that the insurgents stop yelling "Allah akbar!" before and after they blow up our troops and thousands of their innocent brethren?

Gimme a fuckin break!

I was looking at the new XD-m 3.8", and I wanted to know if I should step it up to the Trijicon sites, or just get a laser mounted?

My post over there (#214), question stands for anyone here also.

The First Amendment to the Constitution says this:
Quote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Someone please show me where the government purchasing these items violates the actual text of the Constitution or any of the "federal laws" someone mentioned above. Quote them.

I would love to get a genuine, intelligent reply to this. I may even be down right wrong, but to argue via a misnomer phrase that has been twisted is useless, lets see some laws/facts.

Good for Trijicon and I hope this doesn't cause problems with their contract, HOOCBB you nailed it sad but true. The libs seem to pull this more and more these days while forgetting about the church foundation this country was built on.

I like to picture baby Jesus with a brand new M4 with an ACOG ontop.

On a more serious note. I am glad that the company is making a statement. The .gov will not care and not enough people will be willing to cry about it enough to make them change anything. ACOG works so what if it has scripture on the side of the Lord's Prayer in the upper right hand corner of the glass.

I may have to point that stuff out to a troop today who is dragging his M4/ACOG around by the barrel.

If they made a gun that said "amen" after every discharge, I don't think you would find much dissent.

You think surplus Trijicons will make it to all the firearms distributors in the near future? I can't see Trijicon wanting to lose the government contract with the U.S. Marine Corp. The U.S. Military brass are really not happy with having the verses being on the sites because they think it will put our soldiers in more danger. In other words, these verses on the sites are considered to be "bulletin board material" for all the Ji-haders... WTF Its called WAR! Military Top Brass are getting to be like politicians!

Military speaks on the sights!

Quote:
“This situation is not unlike the situation with U.S. currency,” said the spokesman, Air Force Maj. John Redfield. “Are we going to stop using money because the bills have ‘In God We Trust’ on them? As long as the sights meet the combat needs of troops, they’ll continue to be used.”

Friend of mine who is a Christian, did a 12 month tour in Iraq in a combat unit had this to say:
Quote:
""Ya they don't see anything wrong with it..."Trijicon." Even though we want Islam to believe we are not at war with them and we are training their soldiers with these weapons with the Bible verse on them. So they are using a weapon against people of their own religion, (and us possibly) that says, When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Sorry Trijicon...the text will have to come off...! It was ironic and even comical up till now that no one caught it. But to suggest that it gives us power is ridiculous and condescending to other religions in other country's. You can't get their support and cooperation if you are stabbing them in the back."

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?

New Zealand just showed their PC card and is ordering all new Trijicon devices sans scripter refernces. All of their presently owned devices are being pulled off their weapons until Trijicon can remove the letters and numbers and return them.

Well that isn't exactly what I meant.

If we are giving them free stuff and they don't like what is written on it they can give it back or try to take off the part they don't like. I understand it is contrary to their religion and I have no problem with that. If they gave me a weapon with Allah Akbar (sp?) on it I would sell it, trade it, refuse it, fix it, I may even strike up a conversation on religion (since I am a Christian) but I surely wouldn't complain about it. I would allow them to practice their religion as they wish as long as it does not interfere with my ability to draw in air.

In a statement released Thursday, Trijicon of Wixom, Mich., says it is also providing to the armed forces free of charge modification kits to remove the Scripture citations from the telescoping sights already in use. Through multimillion dollar contracts, the Marine Corps and Army have more than 300,000 Trijicon sights.

I don't think we are too far from the bottom of the spiral at this point.

I wonder how many Marine CO's are just going to shelf the modification kits. "we have enough to do here as it is. No sense in dealing with this senseless bull shit"

I can see "there will be time to make modifications once Stateside". If I were a CO, I'd tell the troops that they could do it at their option. If they didn't want to do it, and if that little inscription gave them security, then they can damn well keep it.

Well I couldn't afford a Trijicon in the first place, but I deff. won't try now.
I dunno though, I might e-mail them and ask why they caved, there are always 2 sides to the story.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."
