IN GOD'S SIGHT

“Go with God, to Hell.”

Apparently, the scopes used on a lot of combat rifles in Iraq and Afghanistan have Bible versus encoded on them, because, you know, Jesus loved killing towel heads with laser like accuracy.

The sights use tritium, which is a radioactive version of hydrogen. I guess that way, even if you miss the evildoers with your bullet, you can still give them a little cancer. Probably not enough to kill anyone anytime soon, but still enough to annoy them.

Granted, the verses aren’t that obvious, and if no one pointed them out, you’d never notice, but putting the words God on a weapon designed to kill someone seems a little, I don’t know… counter intuitive, like quoting Satan on a defibrillator.

Perhaps the worst part about this is that the verses all refer to the light of God, like John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” and second Corinthians which says "For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ."

Seriously, Biblical puns on laser scopes? Oh fuck you. Even if it isn’t a damnable offense to unlawfully invade a sovereign nation, murder thousands of innocent people and children and then occupy them and force your way of life on the locals purely for financial profit, I’m pretty sure God would get pissed about the puns.
