God Sends In The Marines - Monday Morning Humor

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 ass. So, He sent me."

I kind of figured you would!

Good one, GM. I'm going to alert Raven, she'll probably spill her coffee!

Sort of reminds me of the old Jewish proverb:

God couldn't be everywhere at once, so he created mothers...

Awesome...God made Mothers to keep us in line and he made Marines to protect our Mothers' right to do so!!

Years ago a student arrived in my 9th grade Ancient History class. His name was Tony. He was a bit short. After he broke his legs after being hit by a car while trying cross an intersection, we called him ‘legs.’

Legs said from that first day that he was going into the Marines. We humored him, but Legs was insistent. His family was on the liberal side and were quite aghast that Legs insisted upon the Corps.

Legs moved away after the 10th grade. Some years later I got an e-mail from him. He was in Iraq. He was a Marine.

Legs served two tours over in the Sand Box and began a college career. His professors were reliably liberal and atheist. Legs did not make it a secret that he was a Marine who had served two combat tours in Iraq.

Once in History class some moronic prof was going on and on about Iraq and Christianity and the evil US Military and such. Legs raised his hand and asked to tell a story. The prof gave permission.

All Legs said was that joke you posted. He then sat down. The class was quiet. Eventually the prof restarted his lecture. He never insulted the US military again in class.

Message received.

Addendum: There is more to the Tony story. During a battle in Iraq Tony was hunched behind a vehicle. He saw another Marine running up to him and dropping down behind the same vehicle. Tony say the other Marine's name---ROBLETO. Tony asked him, "Is your name Noel?" Robleto replied, "Yes." Tony asked, "Were you in Mr. Austin's class at Lincoln School in Argentina in 1995?

"Tony?" "No-f******-el Robleto! How the f*** are you?"

Amazing. Both were in my class in Ancient History. Both met again ten years later while in combat in Iraq.

Semper Fi.

Fantastic. I love it.

Mike Austin,

Your "story" was was GREAT.

I was sent to the Degree Completion Program as a 0302 Captain....having already served in RVN. I wish I could say that I told this story, but didn't. However, I never had ANY trouble with the Profs...who were nearly all Lefties. The handful of active duty Marines on the DCP (aka "Bootstrap") pretty much took all the starch out of any prof that was telling "tall tails" to unknowing students.

They rather crumble in the face of facts.

...uh, or "..tales" is your prefer.

I think
does a good job with the atheist/liberal response.

Marines are not allowed to attend college "between assignments".

Louis James,

Are you daft? The College Degree Completion (aka "Bootstrap") has been around for Mustangs for decades. The Corps has more officers that were in the enlisted grades first than any other service. Another Note: The Corps has the smallest officer to enlisted ratio of all the services.

How do I know about this? I went to college for 18 months (was required to carry max load AND also max load during Intersession and Summer). Thus, I did in 18 months want most hard-charging students did in 24 months or more. It was a walk in the sun. "Pay-back" was a 13 month unaccompanied tour in Okinawa...and a Camp Fuji...and in Korea...then South to Philippines and finally, Singapore. I was CO of G/2/9 in those days.

Any other items that need factual correction?
