Jesus Must Be Spinning In His Grave*

ht_scopes_1_100117_ssh Kudos to ABC News who broke the story of Trijicon, the Michigan arms contractor who has been selling rifle scopes to the United States Army that have bible citations added onto the ends of the serial numbers.

The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers. The maker of the sights, 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 example pictured here refers to the Book of John, Chapter 8, Verse 12 — “the hell with the loaves and the fishes, eat lead” or something like that. (full slideshow at abc news)
