God Is Busy April 15, 2009

I got this via email:

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 an avowed 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 smashed his jaw with his fist, knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold. The Marine went back to his seat and sat down.

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 in the world 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.”


The classroom erupted in cheers!

If the professor were were really a member of the ACLU, shouldn’t he be keeping his religious beliefs out of the classroom?

I’m rather offended by this story. To sum it up, this story basically praises violence against “heresy.” Not only does it insinuate that Athiests and ACLU (or other left wing citizens) are unpatriotic, but implies that non-Christians are unfit to live in the United States. How is the promotion of violence against Heresy in this story any different than in the case of fundamentalist Islamics against Salman Rushdie?
