Soldier: The word of our Lord Jesus Christ? Yes is is. Don’t move a fucking muscle.

Subject: You are not supposed to—

Soldier: Have you heard the Good News? Get down! Get down on the ground!

Subject: (Shouting in foreign language)

Soldier: This would be a good time to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior! Put your hands on your head!

Subject: (Shouting something about “Allah”)

Soldier: We are here to save you from Islam, motherfucker!

Subject: ( Shouting stops)
