“Lone survivor” Marcus Luttrell recently sat down with TheBlaze TV for a web exclusive, revealing the unexpected questions he would ask God and — if he could make a special request — what it would be.
The war hero — who proudly identifies himself as a Texan first — also spoke about the joys of being a father. Luttrell said he speaks with his two-year-old son “like he’s an adult.” If he has something on his chest, Luttrell said he leans back against the crib and just “[starts] talking about it.”
“He doesn’t argue with me. He’s just happy that I’m sitting there, spending a little bit more time with him,” Luttrell remarked.
With “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg in theaters everywhere this weekend, Lutrell said he hopes to be able to speak about less painful topics in future interviews.
“Nothing about politics, nothing about anything that everyone else talks about,” he said with disgust. “Drives me crazy. Most of the time most people don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.”
Sometimes, Luttrell said, people heartlessly ask him things like, “what was it like to watch your friends die?” or “how many people have you killed?” He just wants to ask how it’s any of their business.
When asked what he would do if God entered the room, Luttrell said that first: “I’d give Him some room. I’d be like,’ Thanks for keeping me around a little bit longer. I owe You a lot.’”
But then, he added, “if we became buddies, obviously I’d start throwing some cracks at Him.”
Luttrell said some of those questions would include, “are we alone in the universe?” and, “who killed Kennedy?”
And if he had a chance to do one remarkable thing, Luttrell said he’d like to see “the true history of the world from all the way back — from where the Earth was maybe not even around to first explosion — and just take a mind-jump from that day to where we are right now.”
“I think that would be one hell of a ride,” he said.
