Sarah Palin: Who ordered the removal of Bible reference from gun-scopes?

I get the feeling Sarah Palin suspects this order probably came from the White House:



Here’s the article:

army_gunscope_bibleverse

FOX NEWS – The U.S. Army is directing troops to remove a Bible inscription that a vendor etched into the serial numbers of weapon scopes, Fox News has learned.

Soldiers at Fort Wainwright in Alaska told Fox News they received a directive to turn in their scopes so the Bible references could be removed.

The scopes were made by Trijicon and referenced New Testament passages in John 8:12 and Second Corinthians 4:6. The verses appeared at the end of the scope serial numbers – “JN8:12” and “2COR4:6.”

“The biblical verse (JN8:12) must be removed utilizing a Dremel type tool and then painted black,” read instructions on how to remedy the matter.

After the letters and numbers were scrapped off, soldiers were directed to use apply black paint to ensure the verses were totally covered.

One of the Fort Wainwright soldiers who received the order to remove the inscription told Fox News that hardly anyone was aware of the religious reference.

“It blows my mind,” the solider said. “It doesn’t help the Army do its mission to take off a biblical reference.”

The soldier, who is a Christian, said he had to comply so “someone doesn’t get offended.”

“We have classes on equal opportunity – things that are clearly irrelevant to our mission – which is to kill the enemy.”

Where’s the full context of what former Gov. of Alaska Sarah Palin said? And who else drew attention to this incident except her? 
 While people dance around all the men who are screwing up our country with their incompetence and lust for greed and power, the most, if not only, honest, principled leader with integrity who is not afraid to stand up and fight for the country and not give a damn what anyone else thinks is given the brush off.

Islamic Muslim, bama and his 6 muslims brotherhoods who work with him in the white house, they  can not have any referernces to a  Christian God or his words in plain sight. Remember in his first term when obama gave a speech at a university he had the university put a cover over their cross. Diversity. And when was the last time anyone seen a cross anywhere around obama in a public setting? How about his allah ring:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Fzudc8vY_M

This is ridiculous. Aren’t Muslims already pissed at us anyway? Give God the glory and He will deliver us from our enemies.

While in the military I depended on the presence of God.     When I was in there was a surge of people who did not look for God for saftey and they were military.  They were Satan worshipers.   Their groups were large.   SOP   I’m suprised the weapons contract wasn’t rejected.    I’ll bet they don’t buy anymore and if they do they will have to be clean.

It could have come from WH and I admit I have wondered the same thing Sarah has but people forget that a lot of high ranking military officials are lefties. You don’t get that high without playing politics.

I suggest the gun manufacturer puts the messages back on, only this time in some sort of code.

This has a hint of “book-burning” – pun not intended.
I could see archaeologists many years from now trying to piece together what the government was trying to erase from history and our culture.  They will find many altered relics and put together what happened here once they find a piece from a history collector that has the full inscription.

Seriously, we should all be caching ‘time capsules’ with the Bible, constitution, history, certain kinds of tech, and so forth. Make it hard to erase our culture. Just in case.

“JN8:12” and “2COR4:6.” will be replaced with BHO
Barack Hussein Obama. That name won’t offend Muslims now will it?

Snake Eaterit’d be nice if it was at least replaced with Psalm 109:8

Go Sarah! However, these people are cowards so I doubt we’ll find out who gave the order.

I wonder if removing the serial number from firearm parts and accessories is illegal? It would seem like it. But maybe not. At this point I can hope for the Army and whomever ordered this to happen, committed a crime. The person that started this whole thing needs to be b’slapped around. Even that aside, how many other Bible verses can we pull out of that one serial number? 1) John 8:12 2) John Chapter 8 3) Numbers Chapter 8 4) Numbers 8:12 5) Galatians Chapter 4 6) Galatians Chapter 4 verse X (10) 7) Genesis Chapter 4 8) Genesis Chapter 4 verse X (10) 9) Nehemiah Chapter 8 10) Nehemiah 8:12 I wonder if the O refers to the prophet Obidiah? Is A the prophet Amos? Most people would just see the intentional Bible verse at the end of the serial numbers as random numbers just like I can… Read more »

Watchman74 PC is a flight from God; everything about it is an attempt to justify rebellion against a Holy God. Why else would the purveyors of PC demand the removal of anything that reminds them someday they will be judged — and found wanting. It really gets under their skin to have constant reminders that their utopian dream world is nothing but a sham.

Christianity is under attack – not only by Muslims over there
BUT 
Also by the Muslim in Chief over here!
AND How can you offend a Muslim over there? 
Why would any enemy be that close to an American Weapon to be offended 
WTF is going on – Are the Military Brass going crazy ? – 
Another bad day for me already – This is very upsetting

“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.” (John 8:12 NIV)
“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 God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV)
I wonder if those night-vision scopes. With verses like those, it sounds like they might be. They’ll be rather unenlightened after the mandated scraping.
Speaking of scraping, Will the next order to be  for our soldiers to bow AND scrape to as many Muslims as possible? Will the verse references be replaced by some sort of Satanic Verse from the Koran?
Kinda; bile inducing isn’t it?

The same people who ordered the removal of material about islam and jihadis from the files of the FBI, CIA, State Dept. and so on, hindering the early detection of islamic terrorists.
Anyway, there are now muslims in the Armed forces, I’m sure, and we can’t offend them with Bible verses, can we!
