Note: I’m busy this week, so here’s a blast from the past. Enjoi. 😉
ABC News: do only knuckleheads work there? Or just the ones who make the news stories for the website? Like this news story:
U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret ‘Jesus’ Bible Codes
Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the United States military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.
A “News investigation has found” them! They are BUSTED!
The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers. The maker of the sights, Trijicon, has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps, and additional contracts to provide sights to the U.S. Army. One of the citations on the gun sights, 2COR4:6, is an apparent reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
Other references include citations from the books of Revelation, Matthew and John dealing with Jesus as “the light of the world.” John 8:12, referred to on the gun sights as JN8:12, reads, “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Firstly: It’s kind of insulting to refer to New Testament references as “Jesus Codes.” :gangpunch: They are Bible verses references, you delinquents!
Secondly: The comments at the news story are filled with folks spewing their “separation of church and state” rhetoric. Ridiculous! For one, having a Bible reference on a piece of U.S. equipment is NOT endorsing a state religion! And the word “separation of church and state” is a lie. Yes, it’s a lie! Pat Robertson is right, haha! It’s not in the Constitution. It’s from an old letter written by Thomas Jefferson, when he was president in 1803, telling the Baptists that the government will never interfere with their right to express their religion freely. The liberals are dead wrong about “separation of church in state” in every way, sorry!
Thirdly: Just wait until ABC News discovers the “Secret Moses Code” on the Liberty Bell!
