A Faith Journey

A Joke. A Religious Joke, of course!

I wanted to start the morning with something funny!

You will later today read why :?

A Friend sent this Joke to me, and the truth behind it makes it even FUNNIER!!!

Have a Most Blessed and Beautiful Day !

God Love You ♥

There were five houses of religion in a small Florida town:

The Presbyterian Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue.

Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.

One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels.  After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were pre-destined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.

In The Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.

The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

But the Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, and Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven’t seen a squirrel on the property since.

  7. Only the Jews (and maybe Japanese) would be able to do such micro-surgery! :)

    The one about the Catholics is rather sadly true about most churches these days, which takes some of the humour away if one thinks on those lines.

    • LOL!!

      But thank God for Humour, for if it were not for the ability to laugh at ourselves and shortcomings, can you imagine what kind of world we would live in :?

  8. This is so funny! Had a good laugh. As a Catholic, I know that for many their attendance at church is as described :)

    April 17, 2012 at 19:30

    • Yup, sad but true. There are many of us Easter and Christmas Catholics in the world :?

  9. Cute joke, Sonel. I think the Jews have the right idea… evidently. By the way, you do know you are going to burn in hell now, don’t you? :)
