Crusaders: US Military 's Christian Dominionists Use Jesus Rifles To Hunt Down Muslims

Christian Dominionists believe the USA is in a Holy War against Islam & other enemies of True Christianity.
Besides Jesus Camp for kids and Ron Luce's Battle Cry for teens there is also
S.F.C. Soldiers For Christ Boot Camp where they crush individuality for Group Consensus and Cohesion.
Preparing Young Adults and teens to be Martyrs For Christ

and then comes the real thing when they enlist in the US Military and are told repeatedly that they are Soldiers For Christ

United States of Christ

Officers in the US Military during training refer to rifles as" Jesus Rifles"
and that they are fighting a Holy War or Crusade against Islam. Each soldier is seen as a Warrior for Jesus and those killed as Martyrs. Compare to Mujaheddin , Al Qaeda, Taliban who also believe they are fighting a Holy War and those killed are Martyrs.

'Jesus Rifles' - Christian Crusade Against Muslims In The 21st Century?

U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes. Pentagon supplier for rifle sights says it has 'always' added New Testament references

Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the U.S. military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.

The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers. The maker of the sights, Trijicon, has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps, and additional contracts to provide sights to the U.S. Army.

U.S. military rules specifically prohibit the proselytizing of any religion in Iraq or Afghanistan and were drawn up in order to prevent criticism that the U.S. was embarked on a religious "Crusade" in its war against al Qaeda and Iraqi insurgents.

One of the citations on the gun sights, 2COR4:6, is an apparent reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: "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."

Other references include citations from the books of Revelation, Matthew and John dealing with Jesus as "the light of the world." John 8:12, referred to on the gun sights as JN8:12, reads, "Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Trijicon confirmed to ABCNews.com that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military. Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions "have always been there" and said there was nothing wrong or illegal with adding them. Munson said the issue was being raised by a group that is "not Christian." The company has said the practice began under its founder, Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian from South Africa who was killed in a 2003 plane crash.

and so it goes,
