Church Quirks

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.

So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to China.

On his first day, he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read ‘$10,000 per call’.

The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for and by whom.

The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God directly.

The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in Japan. There, at a very large Cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it.

He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in China and he asked a nun standing nearby what its purpose was.

She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God directly.

‘O.K., thank you’ said the American and then went on his way.

He then travelled to Russia, Germany, the U.K., Sri Lanka, Malaysia, etc., and visited many churches. In every church, he saw the same golden telephone with the same ‘$10,000 per call’ sign under it. The American then decided to travel to India to see if Indians has the same kind of phone in their churches.

He arrived in India, and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read ‘One Rupee call’.

The American was surprised so he asked the priest nearby about the sign. ‘Father. I’ve travelled all over the world and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in other countries the price was $10,000 per call. How come it is so cheap out here in India ?’

Readers, it is your turn.. …………….Think……………before you scroll down…………….

The priest smiled and answered, ‘You’re in India now, Son – it’s a Local Call. This is the only Heaven on this Earth’.

KEEP SMILING !!!
