The Preacher

The Virginia Baptist Fundamentalist preacher rose with an angry red face, saying, "Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie, and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this."

"Now, I want the party who did this to stand and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian family." No one moved.

The preacher continued, "Do you have the nerve to face me and admit that this is a falsehood Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel wonderful. Now please stand and confess your transgression."

Again all was quiet.

Then, slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde named Cathy, with a body that would stop traffic, rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quavered as she spoke. "Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets!"

The preacher fainted.
