I am a Baptist and find this funny in an odd way. Pleae forgive me Not saying the end was justified, its just a flippant look at how some folks get too wound up in their particular views.

The Man On The Bridge

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!"

"Why shouldn't I?" he said.

I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

He said, "Like what?"

I said, "Well... are you religious or atheist?"

He said, "Religious."

I said, "Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

He said, "Christian."

I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

He said, "Protestant."

I said, "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"

He said, "Baptist!"

I said, "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

He said, "Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!"

I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.

Glad you did.

WB, that's a variation of one of my favorite jokes. Strangely, most Baptists just don't get it.

That joke was actually written by Emo Phillips the odd and eccentric comic. He wrote the joke and someone submitted it in England for the best joke ever. It won. Shortly after that (having nothing to do with the joke), England banned all religious jokes from public airwaves and in comedy clubs.
