Biblical Inscriptions & the 'Negative Message' to the Muslim World…

By Greg Gutfeld/Fox/Red Eye

“…let’s look on the bright side: Our soldiers usually shoot terrorists well before they get close enough to see these bible references, anyway. That alone should prevent hurt feelings…”

Apparently a Michigan defense contractor has pissed off Muslim groups, by inscribing coded biblical references on rifles it sells to the American military. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations claims they send a “negative message” to the Muslim world.

To quote the emergency room doctor I see every weekend: Here we go again.

Groups like CAIR rarely have their priorities in place; they’re always “reacting angrily” to perceived slights or hypothetical backlashes, when they really should be reacting angrily to those who commit atrocities in the name of Islam.

But you know who really gets my gopher? Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. He says the gun sights not only give our enemies a propaganda tool, but adds: “I don’t have to wonder… how the American public would react if citations from the Koran were being inscribed onto these U.S. Armed Forces gun sights instead.”

Now, I believe Weinstein has lost more marbles than a blind man playing KerPlunk. Whether or not bible references should be on rifles is a decent debate, but they will never lead to extremist-driven violence. Terrorists, however, always champion their radical Islamic code and that Ft. Hood shooter more than connected the dots between religion and death, before slaughtering innocent Americans. But come on, even the most radical Christians don’t fly planes into buildings.

But let’s look on the bright side: Our soldiers usually shoot terrorists well before they get close enough to see these bible references, anyway. That alone should prevent hurt feelings.

And if you disagree with me, you probably work for Media Matters.

  1. Here is a verse appropriate for muslims:

    “For there will come up false Christs, and false prophets, who will do great signs and wonders; so that if possible even the saints might be tricked.” (Matthew 24:24)

  2. Hey, how about we have little sayings from Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” on these guns instead? And make them in Twitterspeak. Maybe something like:

    “1st successful rebel 2 go up against power & win his own kingdom: a shout out 4 Lucifer, folks!”

    Alinksy’s words are the new sacred texts, right??

    (only 89 characters w/spaces –plenty of room on a ‘scope for this one)

  3. Lovely video, it should be called “Paradise Express”. They all seemed in a hell of a hurry to get there.

  4. Incredible video of snipers’ DEADLY accuracy.

    They are TOO far away to read the inscriptions.

    Doing God’s work!
