There were Five country churches in a small TEXAS town:
The Presbyterian Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the
Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue. Each church 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 Methodist 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. Three days
later, the squirrels were back.
But -- The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective
solution. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members
of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas 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.
