WTF is wrong with our military

It’s a fucking gunsight, its supposed to make it easier to kill people targets, and we are scared of offending said people targets.

And it isn’t as if the references are bad. The example shown in the Press article is John 8:12

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life’.”

These sights use light to identify the target, I know I used to have one like it on my pistol. The founder of Trijicon was a christian and the markings have been on all his sights since inception. Pretty tame part of the bible even if that is the message of God.

If I was Trijicon I would put references like Joshua 10:19

“But don’t stop! Pursue your enemies, attack them from the rear and don’t let them reach their cities, for the LORD your God has given them into your hand.”

or Psalm 143:12

In your unfailing love, silence my enemies;
destroy all my foes,
for I am your servant.

or Deuteronomy 33:27

The eternal God is your refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
He will drive out your enemy before you,
saying, ‘Destroy him!’

Now those are some real enemy smiting verses that should be on the sights. I hazard a guess that when the bullets and bombs are raining down in your general direction all soldiers call for god’s mercy. At that time God is about their only friend.

And as for Wayne “Comfortable Shoes” Mapp:

Defence Minister Wayne Mapp said the biblical codes were “undesirable” and could be “easily misconstrued”.

“They send the wrong sort of message. They cause the same problems as putting slogans on bombs,” he said. “We should not be doing anything that might give opponents any propaganda leverage.”

He should fucking resign, he goes on my shit list now. You are supposed to be the Defence Minister not some bloody liberal ponce like Simon “FIGJAM” Power. Quit you big blouse. If I was a soldier I would hate to have you looking after my interests.
