    Marines are always taught
    1) Keep your priorities in order and,
    2) Know when to act without hesitation.

    A 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 he 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

    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
    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."
