Then the Marine was arrested for battery and when he used "God sent me" as a defense, and was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation. The professor filed a lawsuit against the Marine and was awarded compensation for his medical bills, pain, and suffering, and the Marine was forced into bankruptcy once his jail term was completed. God was strangely silent during the Marine's criminal and civil trials and subsequent financial difficulties which led him to be homeless due to his actions, all because the Marine lacked the intelligence to acknowledge that his military service was supposedly performed to enable the professor to have the right to think and speak exactly as he did.
People who are dillusioned with grand ideas of self importance often feel thst because they are right, violence is acceptable. Its sad to see religions of so call acceptance acting violently out of fear of the unknown. I often wonder if it has to do with their own doubts.
My biological brother posted this story many years ago. I made the observation that using violence to further the cause of a all-loving/all-forgiving god was not exactly the best way to win over followers.
It was the final straw. He railed on and on, publicly berating me until I finally blocked him and his Marine son.
Full disclosure: the family was already fractured beyond repair. No love lost there.
When I first got on the Internet in 1992 as an AOL subscriber I would occasionally receive these sappy, syrupy stories which came to be known as a ‘glurge.’ Never attributable to any real incident, these feel-good stories were clearly the products of wanna be Reader’s Digest contributors or Hallmark movie screenwriters.
