'Jesus Codes' on U.S. Weapons

What would Jesus shoot? An ABC News investigation has found that high-powered rifle scopes sold to the U.S. military by Trijicon, a Michigan-based company, are inscribed with coded references to New Testament passages about Jesus Christ. The inscription 2COR4:6, for example, stands for Second Corinthians 4:6, which reads, "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Military rules prohibit any kind of proselytizing. Trijicon has a $660 million contract to provide up to 800,000 rifle scopes.
