I just love this paragraph of Late Mr. George Carlin from his book “When will Jesus bring the pork chops”.
Truly an amazing person and a greatest freethinker of all times.
THE CONTINUING STORY OF MARY & JOSEPH: “IT’S A BOY”
MARY: Joe, we’re gonna have a baby.
JOE: What? That’s impossible. All I ever do is put it between your thighs.
MARY: Well, I don’t know. Something must’ve gone wrong.
JOE: Who says you’re pregnant?
MARY: An angel appeared to me in the backyard and said so.
JOE: An angel?
MARY: An angel of God. His name was Gabriel. He had a trumpet and he appeared to
me in the
JOE: He what?
MARY: He appeared to me.
JOE: Was he naked?
MARY: No. I think he had on a raincoat. I don’t really know. He was glowing so brightly.
JOE: Mary, you’re under a lot of stress. Why don’t you take a few days off from the shop.
The accounts can wait.
MARY: I’m telling you, Joe. This Angel Gabriel said that God wanted me to have his
JOE: Did you ask for some sort of sign?
MARY: Of course I did. He said tomorrow morning I’d start getting sick.
JOE: But why should God want a kid?
MARY: Well, Gabriel said that according to Luke it’s kind of an ego thing. Plus, he
promised the Jews a long time ago, it’s just that he never got around to it. But now that he feels ready
for children he doesn’t want to just make them out of clay or dust. He wants to get humans involved.
JOE: Well, is he going to help toward raising the kid? God knows we can’t do it alone. I
could use a bigger shop, and maybe he could throw a couple of those nice crucifix contracts my
way. The Romans are nailin’ up everything that walks.
MARY: Honey, Gabriel said not to worry. The kid would be a real winner. A public
speaker and good with miracles.
JOE: Well, that’s a relief. Anyway, I guess now that you’re officially pregnant I can start
puttin’ it inside you.
MARY: I’m sorry, honey. God wants it to be strictly a virgin birth.
JOE: I don’t get it.
MARY:That’s right, Joe.
JOE: Don’t I get to do anything?
MARY: He wants you to come up with a name for the kid. JOE: Jesus Christ!
MARY: Joe,you’re so heavy.
