60. I would hit REPLY ALL and say
I find this kind of hateful, childish name calling foolishness beneath someone of your rank. You should be educated enough to know that such a thing never actually happened nor would it. Not all Marines hate the ACLU and identify as Christian. I would hope a Marine would have more class than to punch a professor in the face. The fact that you would send this out somehow indicates that you agree with the sentiment, which I find absolutely appalling. Please remove me from your email list, I don't want to be included in a list that finds such nonsense funny, enlightening or even interesting.
