Default Priorities

Navy SEALs are always taught:

1) Keep your priorities in order and,

2) Know when to act without hesitation.

A Navy SEAL 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 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 shocked and stunned and
sat there looking on in silence.

The professor eventually 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 calmly replied, "God was too busy today protecting
America'* soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid ****
and act like an *******. So He sent me."
