Jesus guns

The Jesus Gun story is a hoot. The bigwigs (apparently) didn't realise it, but the British military uses telescopic sights which, it turns out, have biblical references embossed on them. The sights are manufactured by an American company, owned by a devout Christian who clearly doesn't belong to the 'Thou Shalt Not Kill' strain of Christianity. Someone realised this might not be a good idea in a war which has already caused many Muslims to feel not just a little bit persecuted.

Ironic, sad or just typical of how religious belief can pervert reason? What else can you conclude from a telescopic sight inscribed with a reference to John 8:12?

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Maybe Jesus gives you bonus light for killing brown people. Extra lumens for a head shot?
