    Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the U.S. military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.

    The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers. The maker of the sights, Trijicon, has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps, and additional contracts to provide sights to the U.S. Army.


    Secret Jesus Bible Codes on U.S. Military Weapons
    U.S. military rules specifically prohibit the proselytizing of any religion in Iraq or Afghanistan and were drawn up in order to prevent criticism that the U.S. was embarked on a religious "Crusade" in its war against al Qaeda and Iraqi insurgents.
    One of the citations on the gun sights, 2COR4:6, is an apparent reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

    Other references include citations from the books of Revelation, Matthew and John dealing with Jesus as "the light of the world." John 8:12, referred to on the gun sights as JN8:12, reads, "Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

    Trijicon confirmed to ABCNews.com that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military. Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions "have always been there" and said there was nothing wrong or illegal with adding them. Munson said the issue was being raised by a group that is "not Christian." The company has said the practice began under its founder, Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian from South Africa who was killed in a 2003 plane crash.

    The company's vision is described on its Web site: "Guided by our values, we endeavor to have our products used wherever precision aiming solutions are required to protect individual freedom."
    "We believe that America is great when its people are good," says the Web site. "This goodness has been based on Biblical standards throughout our history, and we will strive to follow those morals."

    Spokespeople for the U.S. Army and the Marine Corps both said their services were unaware of the biblical markings. They said officials were discussing what steps, if any, to take in the wake of the ABCNews.com report. It is not known how many Trijicon sights are currently in use by the U.S. military.

    The biblical references appear in the same type font and size as the model numbers on the company's Advanced Combat Optical Guides, called the ACOG.

    A photo on a Department of Defense Web site shows Iraqi soldiers being trained by U.S. troops with a rifle equipped with the bible-coded sights.

    "It's wrong, it violates the Constitution, it violates a number of federal laws," said Michael "Mikey" Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an advocacy group that seeks to preserve the separation of church and state in the military.

    Most Marxist, Leftist JNU types are haters of the Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh culture in the country.

    These losers are embarrassed of their faith and fed and brainwashed over years on British-colonial recipe of education curriculum promoted by JNU and CBSE, believe in only the negatives of our faiths' branches.

    Take Romila Thapar for example. She is a rabid hater of Hindus which even infuriated me. It is a miracle how you Hindus tolerate such terrorist, barbarian scum as an 'intellectual"

    The reality is, ALL the countries around the world name their weapons after their heroes and cultures while only in Secularist-occupied India, the local culture is looked down upon, hated and outsider cults are invited to dominate, annihilate and harass them.

    Nowhere in the US Constitution is there the phrase separation of church and state. The phrase appears in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson, who had nothing to do with writing the Constitution. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, which speaks of rights endowed by our Creator.

    Even if it does, you don't need to justify it.

    It is your country, and your faith has a right to express itself over others. By over, I don't mean dominate them or harass them, but be proud of what is yours.
