Politics, Being “Religious,” and the Lord’s Prayer (storytime)

04 Jun

Two Congressmen were arguing one day about who was more religious. FirefoxScreenSnapz535“You’re not religious, Henry! I’ll bet you don’t even know the Lord’s Prayer,” said one to the other, poking his finger in his chest. “Of course I know the Lord’s Prayer, Bob!”  “Want to put a little bet on it?”, asked the first confidently. “Of course,” Henry retorted. “If I recite the Lord’s Prayer perfectly, you have to give me fifty dollars right here and now!” “You’re on,” said Bob.

Bob looked absolutely shocked.  “Here’s your fifty dollars, Henry.  I didn’t think you knew it!”
