  • Never a truer word

    A priest and a rabbi were sitting in adjacent seats on an airplane. After a while the priest turned to the rabbi and asked,"Is it still a requirement of your faith that you dont eat pork? The rabbi responded, "Yes, that is still one of our laws. The priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?" "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and ate a bacon sandwich." The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.

    A while later the rabbi spoke up and asked, "Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?" The priest replied, "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith." The rabbi then asked him, "Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?" The priest replied, "Yes, Rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke the pledge of my faith." The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent for several minutes. Finally the rabbi quietly observed, "Beats a bacon sandwich any day doesn't it?"
