The correlation between the content of the verses one may choose to associate with the numbers and letters on the night sights and the fact that the sights are for use in reduced light situations seems to be sufficient reason to keep them there.
How is this unlike any warrior praying to his God to protect him during battle? I don't think anyone is going to succeed in outlawing prayer in battle anymore than they can prevent kids from praying before exams. The references are not waved like a flag, not promoted, not charged for. They are just there because the manufacturers are offering their prayers of support for our soldiers and marines. The user of the product does not normally see or read them, and if he/she does, he/she needs to understand that they may refer to the Christian Bible, and then take the trouble to either look them or recall them from memory. Without that additional step, the inscriptions are meaningless and therefore should be considered inoffensive and allowed to remain.
Like I said in the thread that introduced this topic on the AR forum, let's all help spread The Word.
who work for a living must
vote to outvote those who vote for a living.
