Trijicon Manufacturing – backs off from its religious values

Filed under: news — seniorgeek @ 7:58 pm

Why does anything related to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Bible have to be removed and not items related to other religions?
What is happening to our countries morals, attitudes, and values?
The following comes from an article about markings on sights used in US combat weapons.

“The inscriptions are not obvious and appear in raised lettering at the end of the stock number.
Trijicon’s rifle sights use tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen, to create light and help shooters hit what they’re aiming for.

Markings on the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, which is standard issue to U.S. special operations forces,
include “JN8:12,” a reference to John 8:12: “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life,'” according to the King James version of the Bible.

The Trijicon Reflex sight is stamped with 2COR4:6, a reference to part of the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians:
“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,” the King James version reads.

Photos posted on a Defense Department Web site show Iraqi forces training with rifles equipped with the inscribed sights.

The company’s practice of putting Bible references on the sites began nearly 30 years ago by Trijicon’s founder,
Glyn Bindon, who was killed in a plane crash in 2003. His son Stephen, Trijicon’s president, has continued the practice.” (Manufacturing.net, January 21, 2010)

Trijicon is now going to remove the inscription from its rifle sites.
