here were four country churches in a small Texas town: The Presbyterian Church, the
Baptist Church, the Methodist Church and the Catholic Church. Each church was overrun
with pesky squirrels.
One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the
squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels
were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will.
In the Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The
deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in
it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.
The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to
harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free
a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.
But -- The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution. They
baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only
see them on Christmas and Easter.
