Time for a Good Joke: Religious Politicians!

Senator Porkbelly and Congressman Redstate were arguing about which of them was more religious.  “You think you’re so religious, Senator Porkbelly?,” the Congressman asked.  Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 6.01.56 AM“Well, I’m certainly more religious than you!”, the Senator replied.  “Oh, yeah?  I’ll bet you don’t even know the Lord’s Prayer!”

“Of course, I know the Lord’s Prayer!,” retorted the Senator.

“I’ll bet you fifty dollars you can’t recite the Lord’s Prayer,” challenged the Congressman.  “You’re on!,” said the Senator.

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take!”

The Congressman said with great shock, “Senator, I didn’t think you knew it!  Here’s your fifty dollars!”

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

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.

KeynoteScreenSnapz104Henry cleared his throat and proudly said, “The Lord’s Prayer:  ‘Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.  If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.'”

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