I often get criticized for allegedly caricaturing evangelicals and mainliners. I’ll write something critical, and people will comment that I’m taking cheap shots, creating straw men, etc. But seriously, check out this BBC story on an American company that puts Bible verse references on the rifle scopes used by American and British soldier. This is better than The Onion could make up:
Coded references to biblical passages are inscribed on gunsights widely used by the US and British military in Iraq and Afghanistan, it has emerged.
The markings include “2COR4:6″ and “JN8:12″, relating to verses in the books of II Corinthians and John.
Trijicon, the US-based manufacturer, was founded by a devout Christian, and says it runs to “Biblical standards”.
…The company states on its website: “We believe that America is great when its people are good. This goodness has been based on biblical standards throughout our history and we will strive to follow those morals.”
