    Got this from the Berettaforum; I don't think it's spam, and if it isn't, it'll create some news:

    Oh, the horror! I'm offended! The bible?!? :rolleyes:

    Here's my idea: we'll replace the bible quotes with the Miranda warning. That way, our troops can read the Miranda warning to the enemy before taking a shot. Especially the part about the right to remain silent. Permanantly. :cool:

    Our combat troops dealing with "Terms of engagement" are emboldening the enemy in a much more serious manner.

    Oh for pity sake.

    First of all, it is probably just a coincidence...Trijicon is way too smart to play those kind of games with a huge dollar US Gov contract...and the whole attendant separation of church and state thing.

    Second, even if...the Bible phrase references "light". Given the whole lighted reticle thing...well...

    I do not know why folks get so fired up about this stuff...even if true!

    That's a pretty huge coincidence, HoosierQ.

    I would definatly take a bible-sight.

    Yeah they do do it, they always have and its not a big secret. There are bible references at the tail end of the serial number.

    Whatever happens, I am sure it will cost us taxpayers a mint.

    it is not.. they are different verses on different models, all about the LIGHT.. which is a clear allusion to the ACOG's advantages !

    And..? I mean, Trijicon is free to put whatever they want on their scopes.. and the DOD is free to buy them, or not..

    I was an ACOG owner for years and never knew this. Personally I don't care, but I'm a forgiving kind of guy.

    I imagine the best they can hope for at this point is to stop putting the Bible stuff on new ones, and they will proabably be lucky to not get their entire contract cancelled.

    Any company with 600+mil in govt contracts should have known better.

    Sorry, I saw the date on the article and didn't see the other thread even though I scanned for it.

    Still interesting news; I'm now saving for a Triicon!

    This only boosts my fanaticism of Trijicon.

    The mods have been closing these with a quickness though. Two went down yesterday.

    I just found out about this yesterday. I have always liked Trijicon before I knew this and will continue buying thier prdoucts after the fact. The make a great product. The artricle says that it may embolden the enemy saying this is a "crusade." That is total nonsense, these people already hate us and nothing is going to change that fact.

    Since most of the members of our armed forces doing the fighting pray and have bibles with them how is this bad in any way. I can't believe the cry baby attitude that radical muslims may somehow become more radical because a great company puts an inocuous marking on a small piece of equipment. How you seen the Q-tip missles with facist islamist writing all over them? I don't have a problem with anything they write on anything they own. The seperation of Church and State crowd are ignorant of our history. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a private company writing what they want on their own products. Great products at that. Ever beeen to In-and-Out Burger? Even cup woull make some of these cry babies complain.

    Really nothing to do with THR, and a potential violation of the Code of Conduct everyone here has agreed to follow.
