A Michigan-based company that manufactures scopes for firearms is under scrutiny because a report has found that it includes New Testament verses in its products, information pills some of which are used by the U.S. military.

According to ABC, unhealthy Trijicon has contracts with the Defense Department, health including a $660 million multi-year contract to provide 800,000 optical sighting devices to the Marine Corps. The sights contain Bible verses that include JN8:12, which refers to John 8:12, “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

The devices from the company are used by American troops in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as to train Afghan soldiers ahead of the scheduled troop drawdown in 2011.

    Ok first you invade Irag then you train them after screwing thier country up you blow them to hell and back you blow up their weapons and then you give them bullets that are ending up in the bad guys hands and killing our guys. That i can understand some what. But now you want to give a guy who can’t read above the 4th grade a devise that I can’t afford let alone take out the United States becuse you are afraid that it will get stolen by some dam terrorist and you want to give the torrest brother the most costly rifle sight on the market. I will fight this shit. We are giving them AR-15′S that look like AK’s my taxes are going to pay the guys who blow up the World Trade Center give me a break this crazy sh*t must stop
    This is not World War II it will not end in 7 years this will be going on long after i’m dead. My kids my friend kids are not going to fight some guy who we gave arms to like Reagan did if we look at it we should have let the Russians do what they do best in the 80′s but no one listen to them they told us that it would come back to bite us in the end and it has!! Are we paying these people to come and kill us at a later date with our own weapons I give about a year before some of our troops say we found a Trijicon Scope on the bad guy and we gave it to them!
