A Damned Fine Sermon! December 19, 2015

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Humor, Joke.

Mickey-OKA man went to church one day.

Afterward he stopped to shake the preacher’s hand, “Preacher, I’ll tell you, that was a damned fine sermon…. Damned good!”

The preacher said, “Thank you sir, but I’d rather you didn’t use profanity.”

The preacher grinned, “No shit?”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Money talks! And sometimes swears. 😉

You got me there!

2. Kate Crimmins - December 19, 2015

Yep, saw that one too. Hey you have to roll with the punches (and keep the money coming in!)

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

A lot of people swear by money! 😎

Kate Crimmins - December 19, 2015

Can’t lose with that!

That sounds like par for the course, Nancy. 😀

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

It does! Have a jolly time in England.

Profanity is taking God’s Name in vain, which is in violation of a Commandment.
The S word however, is not profanity. It’s obscenity, which is not breaking any Commandment; but Christians are encouraged to be temperate in their use of language.
Now if someone says, “Holy s__t!” it might be considered both obscenity and profanity; and his mother might wash his mouth out with soap.

I never knew there was a distinction between “profanity” and “obscenity.”

I swear! 😛

Money sure talks…. in more than one language! 😆

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

Indeed . . . a universal language.

6. Val Boyko - December 19, 2015

Damn good 😆

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

Is that oath under oath? 😉

7. Barb - December 19, 2015

Dammit, money still talks!

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

Of curse it does!!!

8. Jill Weatherholt - December 19, 2015

I suppose that was the first words to pop into his head. We’ll give him a pass this time. 🙂

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

My guess? The preacher wanted that man to feel “right at home” so he’d became a frequent repeat visitor.

9. diannegray - December 19, 2015

Haaaaa! damned fine joke, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - December 19, 2015

Just drop $5000 in the collection plate on your way out! :mrgreen:

10. Tiny - December 19, 2015

That was a good one! Money talks, at least as long as we’re here on earth 👽

nrhatch - December 21, 2015

Yes. The days of trading in shells and beaver pelts is long gone.

11. Carol Ferenc - December 20, 2015

Damn … I LOVE that one!!

nrhatch - December 21, 2015

Damn glad to hear that, Carol. 😎

12. Debra - December 21, 2015

This is another great one! I have a minister cousin…I’m going to share this one with him for sure. He’ll love it! 🙂

nrhatch - December 21, 2015

Yay! Hope he gets a kick out of it. I like a minister who can roll with the punches without getting hot under the collar.
