Church Squirrel

Still struggling to post regularly so I hope you guys don’t mind this filler.  It’s something that has been around the blogosphere for a few years but seems to be making the rounds again. So here’s me jumping on the bandwagon.  Anyway, you all know I am a church squirrel.


There were five houses of religion in a small 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 predestined 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, except that they
took one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they
haven’t seen a squirrel on the property ever since.
