U.S. Military Using Jesus Guns with Secret Bible Codes [Photos]
U.S. Military Weapons Have Secret Bible Codes
from the Curmudgeon's desk: GA Anderson
Just when you think people can't get any sillier, you see a headline like this:
"U.S. Military 'Jesus' Weapons Have Secret Bible Codes"
Followed by a story that is so incredulous that you would think the "complainers" would want to remain anonymous, but not in this case.They are standing tall. And Righteous.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is publicly proclaiming that the U.S. military's use of weapons with secret bible code references is not only unconstitutional, but also illegal.
Unconstitutional and illegal! Jesus Guns! Secret Bible Codes! Forcing Jesus upon our enemies at the point of a gun! Those aren't satirical statements being used to make fun of the issue, they are part of the supporting arguments used by the above named Foundation in defense of their outrage.
Secret Bible 'Jesus' Codes on Military Weapons
Just so there is no doubt, there really are Secret Bible 'Jesus' Codes on Military Weapons. And the company that manufactures the optics that contain those bible references freely admits it, saying the company founder was a devout Christian from South Africa that believed...
America's goodness has been based on Biblical standards throughout its history, and we will strive to follow those morals."
The company in question is a sighting and optics manufacturer, Trijicon, based in Wixom, Michigan. The company currently has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps for various weapons, including the standard-issue assault rifles.
The secret bible codes being referred to are; "JN8:12, which refers to John 8:12, "Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life," and 2COR4:6, which is obviously a reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
These are the only two Bible codes referenced, but since these codes have been "secret" since 2003, and only recently revealed, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is demanding an investigation of all sighting optics used on all U.S. military weapons.
The unconstitutional and illegal "secret" Bible codes that essentially turn the weapons into 'Jesus' guns are shown below.
caveat: although this article is written with an obvious bias, it is not satirical fiction - this is a true story that broke on ABC news 1/18/2010
U.S. Military 'Jesus' Gun
Can you spot the secret Bible code that turns this U.S. Military Assault rifle into a 'Jesus' gun that is proselytizing Christianity - at the point of a gun? No? Then look below.
Military Religious Freedom Foundation Says It's Illegal
Citing the U.S. Constitutional requirement of separation of Church and State, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation says that the existence of these Bible references on military weapons violates that prohibition. Noting that the codes are blatant religious symbolisms, and the weapons are property of the U.S. government, the combination can easily be construed as a U.S. Government promotion of Christianity.
Foundation spokesman Micheal Weinstein offers this explanation for his groups opposition to the Bible references:
"It allows the Mujahedeen, the Taliban, al Qaeda and the insurrectionists and jihadists to claim they're being shot by Jesus rifles," he said.
Stating that the Foundation had received numerous complaints from currently serving military personnel that are concerned the existence of the Bible references on their military weapons could be used as a recruiting tool by the enemy as proof that the U.S. military missions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Arab nations really are Christian crusades against Islam.
Further, Mr. Weinstein also states that the inclusion of the Bible references is illegal. The U.S. military created specific rules against proselytizing of any religion in Iraq or Afghanistan, purposely to avoid that perception by Arabs. Using a Defense Dept. website photo of an Afghanistan soldier being trained on one of the weapons, his contention is that the use of these 'Jesus' guns provided to the Afghanistan soldiers by U.S. soldiers is proselytizing.
The photo is shown below.
U.S. Military Proselytizing for Christianity with 'Jesus' guns
U.S. Military response to Secret Bible Codes
U.S. Army and the Marine Corps spokesmen said their services were unaware of the biblical markings, but now that they have been pointed out, officials were discussing what steps, if any, to take in the wake of the ABCNews.com report.
Apparently the Military Religious Freedom Foundation feels this issue is such an egregious violation of all things right, that nothing short of a total recall and removal of approximately 800,000 Trijicon weapons optics systems will do.
Only in America....
