Love | Peace| ABC News has reported that the US military encodes secret Bible messages on gun sights used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Spokespeople in New Zealand’s Defence Forces and also in Britain’s say that the citations on Trijicon scopes are ‘inappropriate’ and will be removed.
As ABC News reported Monday, Michigan-based Trijicon has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps, and additional contracts to provide sights to the U.S. Army. The model numbers inscribed on the scopes include coded references to New Testament verses.
Even though US military rules prohibit vendors from religious proselytizing of any kind, vendor Trijicon was the only supplier that met the US marine corps’ needs in 2005.
