Four churches a synagogue and rats …

Shared by Bear Tales follower John


There were four churches and a synagogue in a small town: – A Presbyterian church, a Baptist church, a Methodist church, a Catholic church and a Jewish synagogue.

Each church and the synagogue had a problem with rats.

The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their rats. After much prayer and consideration, they determined the rats were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.

At the Baptist church the rats had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water slide on the baptistery and let the rats drown themselves. Unfortunately the rats liked the slide and since they knew instinctively how to swim, twice as many rats showed up the following week.

The Methodist church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their rats and set them free near the Baptist Church.

Two weeks later the rats were back when the Baptists took down the water slide.

The Catholic Church came up with a very creative strategy. They baptised all the rats and consecrated them as members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.

Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They caught one rat and circumcised him. They haven’t seen one since …

Thanks John. We are laughing!
