There are two things Marines are always taught:
1. Keep your priorities in order.
2. Know when to act without hesitation.
A college professor, avowed atheist and active member of the A.C.L.U., was teaching his college course. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove that there was no God. Addressing the ceiling he shouted: “GOD, if you are real, then knock me off this platform!!! I’ll give you exactly 15 minutes!!!!” The lecture room fell silent. You could here a pin drop. Ten minutes went by. “I’m waiting God, if you’re real, knock me off this platform!!!” Again, after four minutes, the professor taunted God saying, “Here I am, God!! I’m still waiting!!!”
His count got down to the last couple of seconds when a Marine, who was just released from the Corp, after serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, and who had newly registered for the class, walked up to the professor. The Marine hit him full force in the face. This sent the professor tumbling from his platform. The professor was out cold. The students were stunned and shocked . They began to babble in confusion. The Marine nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat in silence. The class looked at him and fell silent also… waiting. Eventually the professor came to and was noticeably shaken. He looked at the Marine in the front row. When the professor regained his senses and could speak, he asked “What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?”
The Marine said “God was really busy protecting America’s soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid things and act like an ass. So…He sent me.”
