Today is a holiday - something about how Jesus came out of his tomb and saw the Chocolate Bunny's shadow so the Rapture was postponed for another two thousand years and it's the fault of the Jews so they have to eat bad food and flat bread but they get to drink four big glasses of wine. (No, actually, but read on.)
Saul and Esther raised their son, Bernie to be a good Jew and then sent him off to college where he wrote home:
Dear Folks -
I'm having fun and learning a lot. As a matter of fact, I've become a Christian.
Esther was beside herself. How could this happen?
Saul went next door to talk to his neighbor about what to do.
"Abe, you know my son Bernie. You know we raised him to be a good Jew and now he's away from home - he's become a Christian. Oy vey, what do we do?"
Abe said, "Funny you should mention it, same thing happened to my son. You need to talk to the Rabbi."
Saul went to the Rabbi. "Rabbi, you know my son Bernie. We raised him to be good Jew and now he's away from home - he's become a Christian. Oy vey, what do we do?
The Rabbi said, "Funny you should mention it but in the Synagogue same thing, everybody's family. You should pray to God."
Saul goes to the Synagogue and prays to God in his loudest voice: "Dear God in heaven, you gave us our son Bernie. We raised him to be a good Jew but now he's away from home - he's become a Christian. Oy vey, what do we do?"
A big voice out of Heaven says: "Funny you should mention it but the same thing happened to my Son."
See? We're all the same but different.
Merry Easter and Happy Holidaya
