A catholic priest, a baptist preacher, and a rabbi are all chaplains at a small, Midwest college. They get together every Friday to talk shop and drink coffee, and at one of these meetings one of them comes up with the idea that it's easy to preach to students. No, the real challenge would be to convert a bear.
So they decide to go out that weekend to find a bear to convert, and then meet back up next Friday to report. The next Friday, the catholic priest goes first. He's got a black eye, arm's in a sling. He says "Well I went a walking in the forest, and came about a brown bear. I started teaching the catechism to him, but that bear would 'ave none of that. He attacked me, and tossed me about, until a vial of me holy water came loose and splashed him. Well, then he became as gentle as a lamb. He's going to take his first communion next week."
The baptist preacher goes next. He's got two broken legs, broken arm, neck's in a brace, and he's in a wheelchair. He says "Well I didn't do any of that namby-pamby papist crap! I marched straight into dem woods, found myself a bear, and started preachin' the word of the LORD at that bear. But that bear, he ain't havin' none of it! He attacks me, and we 'rassle up one hill, and 'rassle down another, 'til we get to a stream and I dunk his head in, and baptize him in the name of the LORD! That calmed him right down. We're goin' around campus to convert heathens next week."
Last is the rabbi. He's in a full body cast, IV drip, surrounded by medical equipment. He says very weakly, "On second thought, maybe it wasn't such a good idea to start with the circumcision..."
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan
