Trijicon decides that their religious views matters more than US Military Code or the strategic mission of the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Trijicon, a sighting manufacturer based in Wixom, Mich., has several multimillion-dollar contracts with the Pentagon to make sights.Along with the sights stock number, there are coded Bible passages from the New Testament engraved on the sights.
One reads JN8:12, an apparent reference to John 8:12, which says, “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
“Trijicon did not return calls for comment yesterday but confirmed the engravings to ABCNews.com. And the companys mission statement is steeped in religion, saying it strives to follow morals “based on Biblical standards.”
Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said the sights endanger troops. “This plays right into the hands of maniacs who say, ‘Look, it’s a jihad,'” he said, adding that he’s received several complaints from soldiers and Marines.
Apparently they think they have answered the question: What Would Jesus Shoot?
