You won't see ANY selfish atheists do this.
We aren't that stupid. He probably expected GAWD to protect him.
You aren't that 'stupid'.
Did he risk his own life to save others?
... during their movement through the canyon
road, Serial 2 [Tillman's platoon had to split
up because of a broken Humvee; the parts were
called Serial 1 and 2] was ambushed and became
engaged in a running gun battle with enemy
combatants. Serial 1 [Tillman's portion of
the platoon] had just passed through the same
canyon without incident and were approximately
one kilometer ahead of Serial 2. Upon hearing
explosions, gunfire, and sporadic radio communication
from Serial 2, Serial 1 dismounted their vehicles
and moved on foot, to a more advantageous position
to provide overwatch and fire support for
Serial 2's movement out of the ambush. Upon
exiting the gorge, and despite attempts by
Serial 1 to signal a "friendly position",
occupants of the lead vehicle of Serial 2
opened fire on Tillman's position, where he
was fatally shot.
Was he an atheist?
Tillman was an atheist. According to speakers
at his funeral, he was very well-read, having
read a number of religious texts including the
Bible, Quran and the Book of Mormon as well as
transcendentalist authors such as Ralph Waldo Emerson
and Henry David Thoreau. However, responding to
religious overtones at the funeral by Maria
Shriver and John McCain, his youngest brother,
Richard, asserted that "Just make no mistake,
he'd want me to say this: He's not with God,
he's fucking dead, he's not religious." Richard
added, "Thanks for your thoughts, but he's
fuckin' dead." Another article quotes Tillman
as having told then-general manager of the Seattle
Seahawks Bob Ferguson in December 2003, "You
know I'm not religious."
Was Tillman stupid?
Anyway it's possible the priest considerred he was going to die
no matter what so he could pass the equipment on to someone more
likely to live making better use of the respirator.
