And people say God doesn’t have a sense of humor.
Nay, I say. God has the best sense of humor. I can take a little religious humor provided it’s in good taste.
Here’s a favorite joke of mine:
A Caucasian man and an African-American man were great friends: Deeply religious, Catholic, and kind-hearted. However, they did tend to argue over God’s race. The Caucasian man argued that God is Caucasian, while the African-American man argued that God is African. Unfortunately, they were arguing about this once after leaving Confession, and it distracted them, causing them to crash. They passed away, but went straight up to Heaven.
When they arrived, they saw St. Peter at the Gate. “Alright, now we’ll find out which one of us was right.” the African-American man said. “Yep.” The Caucasian man replied. When they got close to St. Peter, Peter called out, “Ah, brothers! Welcome! I am aware that you were both interested in meeting God personally, yes?”
“Of course,” the two men said.
“Alright, please follow me.” Peter said. He opened the Gates and led the men to a beautiful marble room with two doors. In the room was a small table with three chairs. “Wait here, brothers. God will be here soon.” Peter said. He then left back for his post at the Gates. The men seated themselves and waited patiently.
A little while later, as the men sat, staring at the door excitedly, the door opened. A glowing, bearded man with a tannish-colored skin appeared.
