Quote# 70189

[in response to news that the army "will investigate whether a Michigan defense contractor violated federal procurement rules by stamping references to Bible verses on the gun sights used by American forces"]

Trijicon is a company who we should support with our prayers. This is a brave and honorable action taken by some courageous belierer within that company! Praise God for Godly men and women in the business world.

When fundies say that they get terrified when they think of armed muslims, that's exactly how I feel about armed fundies.

What's a "belierer(sic)"?

How is it brave or honourable? If it had Pagan sayings and beliefs or Muslim sayings and beliefs or atheistic you'd whine and bitch

Wasn't Jesus about peace?

How about the idea of putting something distracting on a gun sight? Wouldn't it suck if you were aiming at someone shooting at you, caught a glimpse of "John 3:16," thought WTF and died?

You sure you want your supposedly peace-loving Bible to be quoted on things that were designed specifically to kill? I like how they're gonna pray for the company instead of doing anything useful to try to save it. That should have the same results as simply praying for a sick relative instead of taking them to the hospital.

Any irrational nut with a weapon is pretty terrifying.

Bible quotes on army weapons is a great idea.
Start with "Thou shalt not kill."
Another good one might be, "He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword."

"Trijicon is a company who we should support with our prayers."

You do that. The government, however, should not support them with our money.

Funny these "protective" quotes went on weapons rather than armor.

Jesus loves assault rifles!

Talk about Orwellian Double-Speak! What's next, Heavenly Napalm? Jesus' Chlorine Gas, or Atomic Compassion!

'This is a brave and honorable action taken by some courageous belierer within that company!'

That make parts for weapons FFS! Weapons that kill people!

Remind me where it says in the Bible 'thou shalt not kill white, middle class, American Christians, but everyone else is fair game'.

Kid, there is a reason those rules exist. Stamping a bible reference onto an ACOG is good propaganda material for Taleban.

Seconded.

So you don't see a problem with exacerbating a holy war by antagonizing the muslims these American soldiers are murdering with these christian guns?

Wow. Talk about thick headed.

What, it's brave and honorable that they secretly stamped bible verse references on rifle scopes and didn't tell anyone? If they were brave and honorable, they'd have told the Army that the references were there instead of trying to keep it secret.

So, you don't see a problem with putting Scriptural references on something designed to aid in the ending of human life?

Is it more or does stamping Bible verses on guns seem like the antithesis of Jesus' message?

Those were references to verses (LK 14:26), tiny circles stamped into the sights at the end of a serial number. Nine out of ten soldiers probably never saw them, and most of those who did see them probably didn't know what the symbol meant. Pious stupidity, but that's to be expected.

I'm all for this. Let 'em kneel and wail all they want – it'll be just as effective as ever, and it'll keep the nutjobs out of our hair for a while.

""Trijicon is a company who we should support with our prayers."

Go ahead, or just jerk off. It's much the same for all the good it will do.

PS: A company is a "that", not a "who", in spite of all the legal fiction to the contrary.

There totally should have been Bible verses printed on the side of cannisters of Zyklon B.

I think the main problem is that none of the verses were from the Book of Armaments. =3

You RR dolts really don't get it. Imagine for just a moment how you would feel with tools of your job provided with Muslim prayers stamped into them. Still don't get it, do you?
