    So I was talking with this priest.....

    And for many weeks I would visit with him and discuss a great many things on my mind and we went into the discussion of what is God doing right now. I posed the idea He is on the other side of the universe playing with his balls of fire. That He left this world in the keep of others and checks in every so often.

    Then we discussed the beginning of existance. I told him, God was at a drawing board writing out his thoughts then asking what do you think about it.

    And here is one of the most significant conversations.

    The Nazirites. I'll finish this in a bit. Had a walkin and...

    Then I read in the bible about Nazirite and well, it opened the door in memory about the Nazi's. And I started to think about how the Jews were terminated.
    The rituals performed to the jews sounded like the rituals performed in this rite.

    Is the punchline "pineapple"?

    I mean, if you have to post, why not actually finish writing the post and then post it?

    Wow, I can't wait to hear about the Nazirites!

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    The Nazirites... Is that what happened at the end of 'Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark'?

    Also:
    playing with his balls of fire
    ...this is actually quite disturbing.

    All priests are Catholic. Other denominations have ministers, reverends, and such. Now, when translating religions in other languages, we also, usually call them priests...

    carry on with the jokes.

    Eastern Orthodox, Episcopalian, and some Lutheran churches also have priests (although only Orthodox priests are celibate).

    Ukrainian Orthodox priests can marry.

    and to really confuse things; while married as a priest there, they can then convert
    to being a Catholic, and priest, and remain married.

    A priest, a rabbi and a monk were walking along a brick-paved road. The men were discussing who's faith was the strongest. Once the argument became heated, they looked for a way to decide once and for all who had the strongest faith. The three agreed to choose a brick from the paved road and see who could throw it the furthest. The reasoning being that the person with the utmost faith could muster enough strength from it to throw the brick farther than the others.

    The priest chose a blue brick, the rabbi a red brick and the monk a yellow brick. Yes, it was a weird road. Nevertheless, the priest bowed his head, prayed for strength from God and threw his blue brick. It went way up in the air, and then landed quite a few yards away. The rabbi, standing where the priest had, begged for more strength than the priest from Yahweh. He threw his red brick. It went even higher than the priest's and landed even further away.

    As the priest questioned his commitment to God and the rabbi reveled in his level of faith, the monk prepared to throw his own brick. He meditated for a few minutes and then stepped up to where both the priest and rabbi had stood. The monk threw his yellow brick with all his might. The brick went so high that it disappeared from view and never landed.

    Two nuns were driving down a deserted lane when all of a sudden a demon jumped onto their bonnet and started jumping up and down.

    One nun turned to the other and said "Quick...show him your cross!"

    The other nun leant out the car and shouted "OI! YOU STUPID FUCKING DEMON STOP DENTING OUR CAR YOU BASTARD!"

    (oldie but goodie)

    Q: How many people of a certain ethnic persuasion or culture does it take to change a lightbulb?

    A: n+1: 1 to change the lightbulb and n to act in a stereotypical manner.

    (If we're going to do meta jokes anyway...)
