Have we lost the wars yet?

Leave a comment

Well, we’re in the third day of the post-DADT world.  Have we lost the wars, yet?  Are the recruiting centers empty?  Do we need backhoes to find our troop’s moral?  Are our enemies plotting our overthrow, now that the military is all homo-fied?

No. No. No. Yes, but they’d have been plotting that anyway, so no big change there.

It won’t take long for most people to come around to the conclusion that this will be the biggest non-event in military history.  Right wing Chicken Little’s not withstanding.

To all our active duty service members, and to the veterans, thank you for your service, thank you for being part of the finest military in the world, and thank you for showing the rest of us how to live up to our national credo.  Salute.

In still another display of Christian arrogance, a company that manufactures rifle scopes for the US military has been putting references to Biblical passages on it’s products.  Labeled with Bible verses, the equipment is shipped off to the military, and is in use around the world.

Aside from the appropriateness of putting Bible verses on a device designed to kill people, this company has placed military personnel in jeopardy.  Muslim radicals are constantly trying to frame the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Christian war on Islam, and this nonsense plays right into their hands.  They can justifiably claim that Christians are trying to kill them, and that jihad is the only response.

The subject of a report on ABCNews Nightline, the manufacturer of the equipment, Trijicon, claimed the Military Religious Freedom Foundation who is spearheading the campaign to remove the citations,  was “not a Christian organization”.   Apparently you can’t tell a “Christian” corporation  they are wrong, unless they think you are also a Christian organization.
