Pope St Kyrillos VI

Here is a good joke with an underlying reality regarding the mindset of some people today...:

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!"

"Why shouldn't I?" 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, "Religious."

I said, "Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

He said, "Christian."

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, "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

He said, "Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! 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, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.

Peace.

I heard a similar version before.  It's both sad and funny.

Any time someone tells a religious joke, I like to throw in my favorite:

The Pope calls a conclave of the Cardinals together for a special address.
"I have good news and bad news", he says, "The good news is that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,  spoke to me in a vision last night, and told me He was coming soon."

"Thats the best news ever!"  exclaims one of the Cardinals, "But tell us, Holy Father, what is the bad news?"

The Pope replies, "The bad news is that He wants to see us bright and early, Monday morning, in Salt Lake City."
