From this week's edition of Anglicans Online comes this amusing story about life, death and religion. They related this to All Saints' Day, but I can't remember how they did that:
I was walking across a bridge one day, and I came across a man standing on the rail, about to jump. I said "Stop! Don't do it!"
"Why not?" he said.
I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"
He said, "Like what?"
I said, "Well . . . are you religious or atheist?"
He said, "I am quite religious."
I said, "Me too! Are you a Christian?"
He said, "I am."
I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?"
He said, "Protestant."
I said, "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"
He said, "Baptist!"
I said, "What a happy coincidence. So am I. Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"
He said, "Baptist Church of God!"
I said, "Amen! Are you Original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"
He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!"
I said, "Amen and Amen! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?"
He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!"
I said, "Die, Godless heretic!" and pushed him off the rail.
Somehow, I managed to publish this with the title "oheretics - Godless." (It has since been corrected.) This would probably be a good name for an Irish pub: O'heretics.
