2COR4:6, JN8:12 and other favorite Bible verses to engrave on machine gun sights

Nothing like looking down the barrel of a machine gun and reading 2COR4:6 on the sight. An ABC report "US Military Weapons inscribed with secret 'Jesus' Bible codes" says that "Trijicon confirmed to ABCNews.com that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military."

2 Corinthians 4:6 is a verse from the Christian Bible that says "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." JN8:12 is where Jesus says, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." While some will be arguing about the ethics of such a practise, others will argue about exactly what verse should be there.

Michael "Mikey" Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation claims "It allows the Mujahedeen, the Taliban, al Qaeda and the insurrectionists and jihadists to claim they're being shot by Jesus rifles". He said coded biblical inscriptions play into the hands of "those who are calling this a Crusade." I think he has a point. What do you think?
