Leave it to a Marine

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

There's a version of this for about every branch of service as well as some non-serviceman versions.
There's even a couple where the professor is just humilliated by a student who is much smarter or quick witted.

My question is, why do the people that start these things into circulation have to make the "atheist professor" a member of the ACLU also? It's the same story without that.

When Ben said it he spelled "essential" and "liberty" correctly but you're right on the ACLU thing.
