It allows the Mujahedeen, the Taliban, al Qaeda and the insurrectionists and jihadists to claim they’re being shot by Jesus rifles

U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret ‘Jesus’ Bible Codes - ABC News

If lives weren’t at stake, this would almost be funny. This company is doing more than $600 million in business with the US military, and they are embossing references to the bible in the equipment. How come nobody noticed this before?

Besides the obvious separation between church and state issues, I think it is funny that people are worried about somebody getting shot at with a rifle that has a biblical reference inscribed into it. Would it hurt more than if the same rifleman shot you with an identical weapon that doesn’t have such inscription? Would it kill you less?
