The Pastor

preacherA pastor’s wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the
congregationand asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a
rule that whenever the preacher’s family expanded, so would his
paycheck. After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the
congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher’s
expanding salary. A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as
to how much the clergyman’s additional children were costing the church,
and how much more it could potentially cost. After listening to them for
about an hour, the pastor rose from his chair andspoke. “Children are a
gift from God, and we shall take as many gifts as He giveth.” Silence
fell upon the congregation. In the back pew, a little old lady struggled
to stand, and finally said, in her frail voice, “Rain is also a gift
from God, but when we get too much of it, we wear rubbers.” The entire
congregation said, “Amen.”

    Ha ha!! Gotta love those old ladies . . . .

    By the way, my parents had 6 kids and it always confused me when “they” talked about more kids costing society more – because my parents’ income certainly didn’t expand accordingly! I guess maybe if we were on the dole . . . .

    Now what “they” ought to do now is the responsible thing – take less in taxes from people with lots of siblings – because after all, we’re supposed to consume more, not pay more into the community pot, right?
