The Ministers Pay

There was a Minister whose wife was expecting a baby. The Minister went to the congregation and asked for a raise. After much consideration and discussion, they passed a rule that when the Minister's family expanded, so would his pay check.

After five or six children, this started to get expensive. The congregation decided to hold a meeting again to discuss the Minister's pay situation.

 You can imagine there was much yelling and bickering. Finally, the Minister got up and spoke to the crowd, "Having children is an act of God!"

In the back of the room, a little old man with a full beard stood up, and in his frail voice said... "Snow and Rain are also 'acts of God', but when we get too much, we wear rubbers!"

  1. hahahaha! Clearly, this was not a Catholic church! No marriage for Priests, no birth control, and the congregation gets a say in things.

  16. Don't know if he was greedy, maybe just a real attactive wife. Who gave him an uncontrolable urge to jump her. Or just perhaps he's not one to wear a raincoat in the shower!
