Where Uni­tar­i­ans Come From

Gen­tile #1: I’m think­ing he looks more like a rab­bi. Can’t you just pic­ture the yarmulke on his head?
Gen­tile #2: Drei­del, drei­del, drei­del, I made you out of wood.
Gen­tile #1: Clay!
Gen­tile #2: Clay? Oh, it is clay… see, that’s what makes me not Jew­ish.
Gen­tile #1: Be­lieve it or not, in Catholic school dur­ing Hanukkah they had us play drei­del games and eat latkes and stuff.
Gen­tile #2: That’s very weird.
Gen­tile #1: Hey, it was bet­ter than read­ing the Bible.
Gen­tile #2: Touché.

Christ, He’s Still Not Quite Get­ting It

Man #1: I went to con­fes­sion, to a priest. I un­loaded some pret­ty bad things I done. He was a Je­suit, this priest was. He knew I was feel­ing bad, so he told me not to be hard on my­self, that God loves me no mat­ter what. Then he said God loves all of us, that he loved Hitler just as much as the Blessed Moth­er.
Man #2: That’s some pret­ty heavy shit. I’ll tell you this, if I were that priest I would­n’t say that at a syn­a­gogue.
Man #1: Jeez, I did­n’t think of that.
