Navy SEAL, Our Kinda Guys!
Two things to preface the tale -- Navy SEALS are always
1) Keep your priorities in order and
2) Know when to act without hesitation.
A Navy SEAL was attending 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 SEAL 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 SEAL went back to his seat and sat there, silently. The other students were stunned and sat there looking on in silence.
The professor came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the SEAL and asked, "What the hell is the matter with you? Why did you do that?"
The SEAL replied, "God was busy today protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid shit and act like an asshole. So He sent me."
