It was a beautiful day in Heaven.
All the new arrivals were loaded onto a bus at the pearly gates and taken on a tour of the many mansions in Heaven.
The bus driver, a surly man named Hank, welcomed everyone aboard and began the tour.
“On the right is the Catholics manion.” said Hank.
The passengers ooh’ed and ahh’ed over the ornate stained glass and gold staircases.
“Now up here on the left is the Southern Baptist’s mansion.” Hank said.
The smell of collard greens and fried fish was tempting to the hungry people on the bus, getting to Heaven is exhausting work.
Hank continued on showing off the Non-Denominational Christian mansion, the Seventh Day Adventist mansion and the mansion where people lived who didn’t really have a “religion” while on Earth. All were equally glorious, beautiful and ornate. Residents of each mansion milled about the beautiful grounds with residents from neighboring mansions.
It truly was Heaven.
Hank began to turn down a more secluded path, he killed the engine and put in in neutral. “Now I’m going to have to ask all of you to hold your talking for a minute right here and be reeeeaaaaallll quiet.” Hank said.
“Why?” whispered a small Rabbi from the back of the bus.
“Because,” Hanks voice was barely audible, “we’re about to pass the Mormons mansion and they think they’re the only ones here.”
So this was told to me by someone whom I respect in my church. I think it’s funny. But with the recent “namecalling” debate what do you think? Is it okay because I’m the one telling it and am basically making fun of myself? Or is it worse because I’m the one telling it?
If it were coming from the mouth of someone who openly disliked the LDS religion would it cease to be funny?
DO YOU SEE WHY I’M SO PERPLEXED WITH ALL THIS PC GARBAGE PEOPLE?
