Prince of Peace, Forgive Us!
I read with horror the story by ABC News about a company in Michigan which makes telescopic rifle scopes for the US military. What is unusual about these particular scopes is that they have imprinted on them right next to the serial numbers, Bible verses that declare Jesus is the light of the world! The company is unapologetic, and I feel sure that many Christians in America will see no problem with the practice.
If the Taliban or Al Qaeda carried rifles with verses from the Qur'an, we would call them religious fanatics, but somehow it is okay for Christians to do so?
This practice does not represent the faith I profess!
