Then going ballistic over some cryptic letters and numbers on a scope(2COR4:6, JN8:12) does seem the obvious reaction, somehow.
Damn right we should be going ballistic over this. It plays right into jihadist propaganda that this is all a Christian Crusade against Islam. These aren't "cryptic" letters and numbers. They're biblical verses that anyone can look up. I hope the military finds a new supplier, and fast. There are twenty zillion government regulations regarding what you have to do in order to supply the military with equipment. Clearly another one needs to be added if it's not already there. Leonard Pitts put it well is his column.
