A United States Marine who had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan was attending some college courses between assignments.Â As luck would have it, one course was taught by a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU.
One day the professor shocked the class when he came in by looking to the ceiling and flatly stating, ‘God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform.Â 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.’
When the professor announced that there was 1 minute left, the Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him, knocking him off the platform.Â The professor was out cold.
The other students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence while the Marine went back to his seat and sat down without speaking.
The professor eventually came to.Â Noticeably shaken, he looked at the Marine and asked, ‘What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?’
The Marine calmly replied, ‘God was busy today watching over American soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot.Â So, He sent me to deal with you instead.’
