A Catholic priest, a Salvation Army colonel and a Mennonite bishop were friends who lived in the same city. They were friends because they belonged to the city ecumenical club.
They decided to attend an ecumenical conference and to demonstrate their ecumenicism they rode together for the four hour drive. After the conference they discovered the keys in the ignition and the doors locked.
The Catholic priest said, “Let’s break the window and fix it when we get home.”
The Mennonite bishop said, “No it’s my car, we can’t do that. I’ll call my wife and she’ll bring the extra keys.”
The Salvation Army Colonel disagreed, “We’d wait four hours for the keys and then it would still be a four hour drive home. Let’s call a locksmith.”
They began to argue spiritedly holding tight to their positions. After an half hour of arguing, with the same success convincing each other as they had when they argued theology, they seemed to be getting nowhere.
Suddenly the Catholic priest said, “We must resolve this quickly! Look at those storm clouds. In 5 minute it will begin pouring down rain and the inside of the car will get all wet if we don’t get that top up.
