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, 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 preacher continued, “Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, 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.
