|Re: secret religious codes on weapons|
You've got to love their "excuses".
"We've always done it this way." As if being a shoplifter for years and getting away with it means that you don't get in trouble when you're finally caught.
"The groups complaining are not Christian." As if Christians in America are free to do anything they want to non-Christians because no law has been broken unless a Christian complains about it.
To me it is so obvious. Could the US Army require all of its soldiers to wear shirts with Bible quotes on the back and a big cross on the front? No, obviously not. For one thing, there are non-Christian soldiers and they have freedom of religion, too. Then, for the same reasons (even though it is clearly on a smaller scale), the soldiers cannot be required to use these weapons (and I'm sure they are not given a choice).
Of course, the owners of this company probably don't see it that way. I bet they really do believe that putting crosses and Bible quotes on all military uniforms would be good, and that putting symbols of other religions on American military uniforms would be bad. It's kind of ironic to me that the people who profess to be the biggest patriots are the very people who misunderstand the very ideas that make this country unique!!!
They either need to stop putting these hidden messages on their products or the US military has to stop buying them.
