    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?

    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.

    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'être.
