Day Brightener – A Priest And A Rabbi Compare Restrictions Of Their Faiths

A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane.

After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked: “Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?”

The rabbi responded: “Yes, that is still one of our beliefs.”

The priest then asked: “Have you ever eaten pork?”

To which the rabbi replied: “Yes, on one occasion I did succumb the temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.”

The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.

A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest: “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”

The priest replied: “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.”

The rabbi then asked him: “Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?”

The priest replied: “Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith.”

The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silently thinking for about five minutes.

Finally, the rabbi said: “Beats a ham sandwich, doesn’t it?”
