This is an egregious example of zealots putting our military at risk. Religion has no place on the battlefield – keep it behind the lines, where it is a choice to participate or not.

This has given the zealots on the other side too much propaganda fodder to throw back in our faces and use to rabble rouse more illiterate jihadists. The only way to successfully fight the superstitious and archaic world our opponents want to create is to provide education and freedom FROM religion – we can’t do that if we are wielding what are viewed as essentially christian weapons.

Shame on Trijicon, and I hope our military and the GAO do the right thing.
