Thread: Dying Priest
02-02-10, 03:54 AM #1
In Washington an old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he had
faithfully served the people of the nation's capital. He motioned for his
nurse to come near.
"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.
"I would really like to see Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi before I
die", whispered the priest.
"I'll see what I can do, Father", replied the nurse.
The nurse sent the request to The House and Senate waited for a response.
Soon the word arrived; Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would be delighted to
visit the priest.
As they went to the hospital, Reid commented to Pelosi,
"I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will
certainly help our images and might even get me re-elected."
Pelosi agreed that it was a good thing.
When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Reid's hand in his
right hand and Pelosi's hand in his left.
There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.
Finally Nancy Pelosi spoke.
"Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to
be with you as you near the end?"
The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life after
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."
"Amen", said Reid.
"Amen", said Pelosi.
The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying thieves; I would
like to do the same."
'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Or maybe the priest wanted to encourage Reid and Pelosi to push for healthcare reform so that others could get better healthcare than he did.
