Sleeping in Church
A man sobering up from the night before is sitting through the
Sunday sermon, finding it long and boring. Still feeling hung over
and tired, he finally nods off.
The pastor has been watching him all along, noticing his apparent
hangover and is disgusted. At the end of the sermon, the pastor
decides to make an example of him.
He says to his congregation, "All those wishing to have a place in
heaven, please stand."
The whole room stands up except, of course, the sleeping man.
Then the preacher says even more loudly, "And those who would like
to find a place in hell, PLEASE STAND UP!"
The weary man, catching only the last part, groggily stands up, only
to find that he's the only one standing.
Confused and embarrassed he says, "I don't know what we're voting on
here, pastor, but it sure seems like you and me are the only ones
standing up for it!"
