Too Much of a Good Thing?
A recently married minister went to his congregation,
informed them of his wife's pregnancy and asked for a raise
allow him a reasonable salary. After deliberation it was
agreed that the increase in family size warranted the raise.
After six births in six years the congregants called a
meeting to complain that the cost was becoming burdensome.
Things got contentious.
Finally, the minister stood at the altar and said, a little
angrily, "Having children is an act of God!"
"Snow and rain are acts of God too." a man at the back of
the room said, "But most of us wear rubbers."
