The Daily Telegraph reports here that American troops have tiny Bible references inscribed in their special hi tech rifle sights. The company that provides the sights etched the Bible verse references into the sights.
“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.”
There seems to be a fuss about this because it makes the American war into a religious crusade and it will make the Muslims angrier than hornets and we all know that American soldiers aren’t fighting a religious war.
But the verses themselves seem pretty harmless. When I first read the article I wondered whether the verses were something about “smiting the enemy and blessed are those who dash thy little ones against the stones.” Verses about light for night sight lighted sights surely can’t do anyone harm?
