One for God

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

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 shit and act like an
asshole. So, He sent me."

Thats the kinda "crap" I get from my mother in email. She can't see beyond stereotypes that stay firmly in black and white without shades.

I understand the appeal of stories like this but when the creator of an anecdote like this needs to invent a two dimensional stereotype like an "atheist and member of the ACLU" who is ALSO such an asshole that he would behave that way in front of his students.

These kinds of things just make me grind my teeth and wish more people would take a pass on posting hateful and negative stuff like this. There is enough reality out there to illustrate the problems in the world without making up cartoonishly absurd anecdotes like this.

The sad part is that people like my mom passing this along think its a TRUE story that happened and someone could get away with that without being fired or at least making national headlines.
