Once A Baptist


Recommended Posts


John Smith was the only Protestant to move into a large Catholic

neighborhood. On the first Friday of Lent, John was outside grilling a big

juicy steak on his grill. Meanwhile, all of his neighbors were eating cold

tuna fish for supper. This went on each Friday of Lent.

small pitcher of water. He was sprinkling some water over his steak on the

grill, saying, "You were born a cow, you were raised a cow, and now you are

a fish."
