Anywhere people are suffering, Scientology's yellow-shirted "volunteer ministers" can be found lurking near news cameras and claiming to help people with their bullshit technology. They performed "purification rundowns" on recovery workers sifting through the ruins of the World Trade Center after 9/11, administered "touch assists" to victims of the tsunami, distributed literature after the Virginia Tech shooting, and are on the ground in Haiti right now warning the starving, dehydrated populace about the dangers of psychiatry.
Robot-missionaries prey on helpless Haiti survivors
A Christian group calling themselves Faith Comes by Hearing is sending not food or medicines to the needy population of Haiti, but 600 solar-powered digital Bibles that speak and proclaim the gospel in Creole.U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes
Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the U.S. military. 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.
Trijicon confirmed 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."
Jesus has the gun.
Can anyone think of a reason why that shouldn't be prosecuted as treason?
They made the bible the Internet Explorer of artillery.
Looks like I misunderestimated the lazyweb's political jadedness and the popularity of e-schoolgirls.
Looks like something sane has occurred, though, wherein at least they're going to stop fucking around, and file it off the ones in the field rather than pulling them from service. (Of course, filing it off in the field will be demoralizing to our evangelical troops, so we still can't win.)
That's really, really weird. It almost sounds like they value one piddling little $660 million dollar contract more than the eternal souls of our men and women in uniform.
This shit is brilliant.
I love the new jigsaw.
Don't know why my password filler made the above post.
Regardless, that video is of Dubai, not Haiti.

It may be unChristian of me to say so, but DICK MOVE.

One more step toward a completely automated Christianity.
The sexbots will be the first to be converted.
Naughty Catholic schoolgirl sexbots?! Sign me up!
But I have a feeling some of them will say things like, "It is against my programming to engage in sexual activities outside of marriage."
I did specify naughty...
Can I get this changed under warranty?
>I did specify naughty...
Ah ... there is that.
How many extra lines of programming would you need to implement a little sexual hypocrisy?
