You say "...the practice" .. the practice of what exactly ? .. intentionally marking their sight systems with biblical references (lol) that's fucking amusing if its the case."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

I'm sure the 'practice' of doing this was fine for the first 20 or so years seing as the founder of the company was just a deeply religious man. However, with all the bullshit 'politically correct' crap today that's inherent in our society it's no surprise over the new outrage.
According to Obama and Janet Napolitano, Terrorism is now called Man Made Disasters. According to those outraged, weapons with these scopes are now called Jesus Guns.
The irony being that Jesus Guns are now thwarting Man Made Disasters. Holy ****... I think it's a miracle!
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence;
Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without spilling your Guinness.

The really hilarious part of the whole dustup is ABC News talking about their "investigation" and showing photos credited to "ABC News." Every bit of information in that report and every photo in it was copied right off ARFcom and other gun forums where people had been discussing the issue for a couple of weeks by that time. Personally, I'm an atheist, but I don't see the big deal. If you think American soldiers are going to offend Muslims who don't already hate them by having some small reference to Christianity on their persons, I don't know what to tell you. And if you think there's anybody who hates American soldiers more today than he did yesterday because of this news, allow me to express polite skepticism. Hell, my dad has "METHODIST" stamped right there on his dog tags.
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."

I'm just wondering how often this was actually noticed by ANYBODY!!!! I understand that there can be some severe down time in the military but were there really soldiers sitting around reading all the serial numbers on their equipment and seeing if it randomly corresponded to anything? It just seems like the least likely way to get any religious message across.

On one hand I think it's prety cool. I'll add a personal touch to my rifle, body armor, vehicle grenades whatever.
I'm not religious but I fine some quotes from the bible bad ass.
I don't see it as THAT big of a deal, then again I wonder how I would feel about passages from the Koran on my scope. It'd probably piss me off that someone is pedaling their religion on my ****.
In the end it's a stupid move by the US military to have allowed the purchase of these scopes with the bible quotes for non other than the PR ammunition it gives to the media and the members of different religions in the places we try and win hearts and minds. Everything today is about the media public support and money.You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it
