Priest, Preacher And A Rabbi

Posted: Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:23 pm
A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan University at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 

They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop. 
  
One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really all that hard, a real challenge would be to preach to a bear. 

One thing led to another and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it to their religion. 
  
Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences. 
  
Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches and had various bandages on his body and limbs, went first. 

'Well,' he said, 'I went into the woods to find a bear. And when I found him, I began to read to him from the Catechism. 
  
Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb. The Bishop is coming out next week to give him his first communion and confirmation.' 
  
Reverend Billy Bob the Baptist, spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and both legs in casts and had an IV drip. 
  
In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory, he exclaimed, 'WELL, brothers, you KNOW that we Baptists don't sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD! But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. 

So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus. Hallelujah! 
  
The Priest and the Reverend both looked down at the Rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He was in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape. 
  
The Rabbi looked up and said: "Looking back on it, circumcision may not have been the best way to start."

Such a course of action should have involved a bit more planning! But you you got the Baptist preacher part down perfectly. Having spent much of my life as a Southern Baptist preacher, I can say you got the emphasized points perfectly!
