Have you heard about the Alabama Pastor rumor? Now there are often rumors about the clergy, especially in small towns down south, but this rumor certainly had a pastor in a state of shock.
When it was time for the Sunday sermon, an Alabama pastor stood up and instead of his regular sermon, he said to his congregation, “Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate”.
A deep silence followed in the church and after a deep breath, the pastor continued.
“I am embarrassed, deeply embarrassed and do not intend to accept this. Now, I would like the person who said this to stand up and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian family.”
No one moved, not a soul. The whole congregation was silent and motionless.
The preacher continued again, “Do you have the nerve to face me and admit that this is a falsehood? Remember, if you confess your sin, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression”.
Again, all was quiet. In fact, you could have heard a pin drop in the church.
Then, slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde, with a body that would stop a runaway train, rose from the third pew.
Her head was bowed, and her voice quivered as she spoke, “Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets”.
The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the congregation roared with laughter.
