220. Politically correct has nothing to do with this. It's the Constitution and military regs.
Edited on Tue Jan-19-10 01:26 AM by No Elephants
And the safety of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. "politically correct" also has nothing to do with whether we are spending tax dollars to send our troops into Iraq and Afghanistan with bible verses inscribed on their weapons.

And the inscriptions don't make the equipment "the best available, so that has nothing to do with the price of tea, either.

As far as the incriptions being there solely as a matter of tradition, bs. Don't know from where you and the other posters trying to pass this off as meaningless tradition are getting that, but it is not from the article linked in the OP. The company rep said the issue is being raised by people who are "not Christian." To quote from the article:

"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."
