Church Squirrels.

This came from a coworker who sends me all sorts of humour through the E-mail, and who, I wish, would start flagging some of it NSFW, or stop sending me that stuff altogether.  This, however, is funny.

There were 5 churches in a small town:  the Presbyterian, the Baptist,
the Lutheran, the Catholic and the Jewish synagogue.

Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.  One
day, the Presbyterian church  called a meeting to decide what to do
about the squirrels.
 After much prayer and consideration they determined that the
squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere
with God's divine will.

In the Baptist church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the
baptistery.   The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the
baptistery and drown the squirrels in it.  The squirrels escaped
somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.
The Lutheran church got together and decided that they were
not in a position to harm any of God's creation.  So, they
humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles
outside of town.  3 days later, the squirrels were back.

But the Catholic Church came up with the best and most
effective solution.  They baptised the squirrels and registered
them as members of the church.  Now they only see them on
Christmas , Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.
Not much was heard about the Jewish synagogue, but they took
one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision
and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.
