You know how it's 99% disgusting to throw-up? It stinks, burns, splashes everywhere, makes your eyes water, and cramps up your stomach muscles. BUT, there is the 1%. That far corner of your mind that you don't want to admit is there in the middle of your five alarm fire of hot mess. It is the part that is enjoying the vomiting process. Hopefully, my blog is that 1% .

Michigan defense contractor has God in its sights

Associated Press

Look, I have never been religious per se. Unless I just plunked $100 down on “odd” at the Roulette table in the Casino Royale, I pretty much go about my day without thinking about God. The “miracles” of rainbows, true love, and cocaine aside, the only Intelligent Design I believe in pretty much happens at Steve Jobs‘ desk (maybe his bed, mine is not to question).

Okay I have kids and they are beautiful but that is science, specifically, my wife’s DNA. And full disclosure, it’s not that I’m an unbeliever, I just don’t believe religion (Noah lived to be 900 my ass). That being said, were I a defense contractor, I would probably not choose to put God in my sights. I realize that this is a play on words (okay after reading the story) but the article scared me even more. The contractor, Trijicon of Wixom, Michigan, manufacturers of assault rifle sights, actually stamped references to Bible verses on their products ie. "JN8:12," a reference to John 8:12: "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life,'" according to the King James version of the Bible. AND: 2COR4:6, a reference to part of the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians: "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," the King James version reads. So if I am interpreting Trijicon’s intent correctly, on a vessel used to spread freedom among the haters, “the light of life that shines in our hearts and knowledge of God” just happens to be shared by killing any fucking dissenters. Now that is preaching to the unconverted! Good work Trijicon! You have taken sharing the word of God to new lows. Even worse, the US Government purchased $66 million of product before the discovery. I wish I had something funny to say.
