No more scripture on US weapons

January 21, 2010, 4:48 pm | Posted by Dan Nejfelt

Following an ABC News investigation and efforts from faith groups such as Faithful America and The Interfaith Alliance, the weapons manufacturer that had been putting Bible verses on gun sights used by US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan is changing its practices:

Trijicon, the gunsight maker that has imprinted Bible verse numbers on its scopes, has announced that it will no longer imprint the verses on the sides of scopes intended for the U.S. military, and will also provide clients with the kits to remove the Bible verse numbers from existing scopes.

Thanks to everyone who stood up to this misuse of faith — including over 5,000 Faithful America members!
