Be a marine

A United States Marine was attending some college
courses between assignments. He had completed missions
in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a
professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of
the ACLU.

One day the professor shocked the class when he came
in, looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "God, if
you are real, then I want you to knock me off this
platform. I'll give you exactly 15
minutes."

The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin
drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor
proclaimed, "Here I am God.
I'm still waiting."

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the
Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor,
and cold-cocked
him, knocking him off the platform. The professor was
out cold. The Marine went back to his seat and sat
there, silently. The other students were shocked and
stunned and sat there looking on in silence.

The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken,
looked at the Marine and asked, "What the hell is the
matter with you?
Why did you do that?"

The Marine calmly replied, "God was too busy today
protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your
right to say stupid **** and act like an *******."

"So, He sent me."

Sorry its not so gun related but you gotta love it, its a great story.

I like it. No gun, but the "spirit" of this tale is a more powerful force anyway.

Does anyone actually believe that this is a 'story' and not more likely an urban myth?
And watch the profanity please, we avoid swearing here.

I have heard this repeated a few different times with different variations, although most seem to agree that it was a Marine who delivered the punchline. :neener:

I really do not believe that it is true, but I still get a laugh out of it everytime. That's the mark of a good story, right?

So, how much time did this dumbass marine do for assault? And suppose the professsor had a CCW and shot him, would you approve?

Stupid, and old. Also, no offense, but I'd like you to explain to me how the military is "protecting our rights". If they were protecting our rights, they'd be storming the capitol and arresting most of our politicians for perjury & treason. Not running around in the desert on the other side of the planet.

Stupid, and old.

I know I am but I still think this 'story' is an urban myth.

Nothing to do with THR's or GGD's raison d'Ítre.
