Thank you. I think I've just revealed my youth.That sounds really familiar. When this guy came to my campus last fall, a Christian friend of mine was in ROTC uniform and he and some ROTC friends were walking by, and Morrell pointed at them and shouted, "You baby killers!" and my friend responded, "I'm going to be a dentist!" causing a bout of laughter among the crowd. (I'm not sure what the military has to do with babies...can someone help me understand his accusation?)
The term Baby Killer dates to the Vietman War era when returning soldiers were met by anti-war protesters who accused vets of killing innocent Vietnamese babies and people. It's a derogatory term to call a soilder a Baby Killer.
