My father in heaven
   &nbspcan beat up your father in heaven!

Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and War Fighting:

Where do they find these people?

Update It turns out that Boykin’s incapacity to distinguish his official duties from his religious beliefs was a well-known problem at the time of his appointment. When he commanded Fort Bragg, he sponsored a huge revival meeting on base, using base facilities, according to the New York Times.
