No Kiwis Gunning for Jesus Anymore

by christian on January 21, 2010

We posted an update to Tuesday’s story about the Trijicon rifle sight bible verse controversy on Military​.com this afternoon.

Looks as if the New Zealand will be removing the citations from existing sights and will make a request that further ones do not onclide the New Testiment verse callouts.

New Zealand defense force spokesman Maj. Kristian Dunne said Trijicon would be instructed to remove the inscriptions from further orders of the gun sights for New Zealand and the letters would be removed from gun sights already in use by troops.

“The inscriptions … put us in a difficult situation. We were unaware of it and we’re unhappy that the manufacturer didn’t give us any indication that these were on there,” Dunne said. “We deem them to be inappropriate.”

The story also says the Aussies are assessing what to do.

Yeah, looks like they caved in to the god of political correctness. They will no longer be doing this on US sights either…. Are the Muslim angry that it says "In God We Trust" on our money? Gosh we should remove that too, wouldn't want to ruffle their panties…

New Zealand is a very politically correct country. If a teacher asks a child a questions and the child gets it wrong, the teacher cannot say "That is wrong", but they may say "That is right in a way".
People aren't 'poor', they are part of a lower socio-economic group. Cowboys are actually cow persons. etc etc.

Gary are you making a joke? please tell me you are.
New Zealand is one of the LEAST politically correct Western countries I have lived in.
And if you try to say that the public servants are politically correct, then you really are an idiot. Public servants are MENT to be politically correct, if they are not then the politicians take heads. BTW Teachers are public servants.

As for taking the verses off. Good, NZ is a Secular Democray. So they have the right to ask them not to put it on equipment from a supplier. Simple rule "the customer is always right" Capitalism at its best. If you don't like it you are a Communist.

You clearly do not know what the word Dhimmi means.

You clearly don't. To find out, why don't you go ask the Christians in Armenia and the Copts in Egypt.

Once again the media stuffs it up for everyone else!! when you get a story THINK before you print guy’s ACOG had a cool little thing going on there, didn’t hurt anyone, didn’t mean anything, but now a proud company with a great product has to lose one of it’s traditions. What did you think would happen DT? you put Guns and God in the same sentence and all the worlds liberals ears ‘prick up’ and all of a sudden you are offending people who for 25 years have been blissfully ignorant. Newtons 3rd Law, To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.

Does it ever get old blaming all the world's ailments on liberals? It must be immensely satisfying to the infantile armchair generals around here

Shame on the media for doing this. How could some obscure references offend anyone? If this the best they could find on christian fanaticism?

Our media is looking more and more like a propaganda tool for the enemy. The ranks of the taliban have undoubtedly increased and some idiot in the afghan army or police forece will now have a supposedly "valid" reason to let loose on our unsuspecting soldiers – who are only there to try and secure some manner of freedom people living there and not to oppress anyone!

oops, should have read that through before submitting… but anyway you get the point.

Don't worry Mart. To the idiot liberals that frequent this site, your entire post reads, "Blah, blah, blah? Blah, blah, blah, blah" anyway. For the patriotic conservatives, we already get what you're saying and agreed with your point before you made it.

I know! I can't stand how liberals don't appreciate my conservative echo chamber. It's almost like they think different thoughts somehow…God I wish I knew how they did that

in this war of books, patriotic conservatives fight for the constitution, not the bible. NZ removed the references so that they are not seen as religious nutcases, like Iran, Israel and the USA.

Wouldn’t bible verses be more appropriate on armor, anyway? If God’s gonna give me help with any one thing, I’d like it to be “not getting shot.”

Put it this way; if guns, tanks or Predtor drones came from the factory with Quaran verses on them, I think they should be removed too. Mixing religion and warfare is just inappropriate.
