A Priest & A Pilot @ The Pearly Gates July 11, 2015Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.
Ahead of him is a guy in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.
Saint Peter addresses this cool dude, “Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?”
“I’m Bruce, retired airline pilot from Toronto.”
Saint Peter consults his list and says, “Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.”
The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.
Next, it’s the priest’s turn. He stands erect and booms out, “I am Father John, pastor of Saint Mary’s for the last 43 years.”
Saint Peter consults his list and says, ‘Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.”
“Just a minute,” says the good father. “That pilot gets a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can this be?”
“Up here – we go by results,” says Saint Peter. “When you preached – people slept. When he flew, people prayed.”
Aah . . . that’s better!
