I had to laugh at the latest orchestrated outrage over a private company that produces gun sights for the U.S. military that were found with Bible inscriptions in them (http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2010/01/jesus_at_war_wixom_supplier_in.html). Why I get sick of this kind of false rage is that billions of tax dollars every year go to non-Christian countries and political action groups like the ACLU and ACORN (and, yes, Christian groups I am certain as well). Further, less fortunate people can get “In God We Trust” money supposedly for life’s necessities and our public schools and universities can teach evolution and “Big Bang” theories with this horrible message from our Judeo-Christian founders so where is the outrage over it from our government workers and entitlement receivers?
It is pretty pathetic that the U.S. has to waste millions of dollars fighting political correctness over God to stay out of our public schools, off of military weapons and definitely away from our courthouses and other public areas. It is laughable that we pay billions of “God money” to people here in America and all over the world who aren’t educated enough to realize their hypocrisy or strong enough to reject it/return it to us as a method of showing their strong beliefs of how wrong America’s “God dollars” are.
I wonder if the impoverished in Haiti or the oppressed in Iraq care what is on the U.S. dollar as long as they can buy goods and services with these axis dollars of evil? It is really sad that the U.S. of A has a tizzy over such petty “constitutional destruction” as a Bible verse on a gun sight when beneficiaries of U.S. aid and military support gladly accept our U.S. dollars with no complaint.
If all of the constitution huggers offended by the horrendous mention of God or the placement of the Ten Commandments were really believable, the first thing they should all do is refuse to be paid in U.S. dollars and stop receiving government aid. Hey, we could give you ten cans of corn or five loaves of bread into your pantry instead of $50 of taxpayer dollars.
Isn’t that really standing up for your paper-thin beliefs?
