God, the Marines, and the ACLU

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 a vowed atheist and a member
of the ACLU.

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He
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 stuff and
act like an idiot. So, He sent me."
