Re: “Reader: Where does the Springs fall on the tolerance spectrum?

Oh these EPC defining evangelicals! ...so a Buddhist monk is walking with a rabbi and an evangelical minister, when they meet a farmer. The farmer says, "hey, you guys are all beggars, right? I've seen you all pass the plate. How do you decide how much money you keep and how much goes to the flock?"

The monk picks up a stick and draws a circle in the dirt. He turns his back to it, opens his coin purse, closes his eyes and tosses the coins over his shoulder. "I keep what lands in the circle, the rest buys rice for the sick and elderly."

The rabbi takes the stick and draws a triangle around the circle, and then another triangle pointing in the opposite direction. He stares at the symbol and softly tosses his coins. Many coins fell in the circle, but even more fell in the corners of the star! He smiles at the monk specifically when he puts the corner coins in his pocket. "The rest will buy winter coats for the orphans."

The minister pulls out his wad and throws it as hard and as high as he can into the clear blue sky with great exuberance. He says,"Whatever God catches, is His!"
