    And you still don't get it. I think you're being intentionally evasive.

    I don't give a damn what the inscription says or which bible it's from. It's a religious inscription being paid for with taxpayer funds.

    The job of our military is to defend this great nation. The military accepts volunteers of all religious denominations. No religion should be promoted above another. Especially when we're all footing the bill for it.

    My point, again, is that if Trijicon loses the contract and it's re-awarded to another maker, it's possible that the second contractor could turn out a substandard unit, causing out soldiers to lose their edge on the battlefield.
    I think I trust our military in their choice of a good contractor. Whether it is Trijicon or not, they want our soldiers to have an edge and wouldn't put substandard equipment in their hands.

    if you are so offended, I suggest you take a piece of steel wool and remove the inscriptions.

    I don't want the contractor to lose the contract either. But the religious inscription is not needed. They're endorsing a specific religion. And they're doing it on our dime.

    No, you don't get it. I don't see a religious inscription. I see a piece of warfighting gear that, if it works as it's supposed to, will aid our soldiers in killing the enemy and keeping more American troops alive. That's all I see here.

    That idea makes no sense.

    Obviously, you've never served in the military. That's not a shot at you, but anyone who has served in the military is well aware that the military has a nack for buying ****ty equipment.

    Sure it does.
    Rather than simply complain, do something.

    Well, that may very well be. I assumed that they had higher standards for our soldiers, but I could be wrong. I agree, though, that having a tiny code in the serial number that references the bible isn't that big of a deal. I do find it rather humorous, though.
