Applying For Church Membership

by The Internet
An old and respectable church, in an affluent and conservative enclave in Texas, had three couples approach the pastor to see what they needed to do to become members of that church. The pastor said that they would need to show their willingness to place God before all else.

He said they would have to go without sex for two weeks.

Two weeks later, the three couples went back to talk to the pastor. The first, a retired couple, said they cleared the two weeks without any great struggle. The pastor smiled and welcomed them to the church.

The second couple, middle-aged and nervous, said it was tough but they suffered through. The pastor beamed and welcomed them to the church.

The third couple, cute, young newlyweds, squirmed a bit before admitting that they’d almost made it – until she dropped a bunch of nails on the floor.

Confused, the pastor said, “I don’t understand?”

“Well, when she dropped the nails, they scattered everywhere.” The husband shifted in his chair. “When she bent over… I lost it. I had to have her right then.”

The couple blushed.

The pastor bowed his head and said a prayer for the couple. Then stood. “You understand that we can not accept your membership at this church.”

The couple nodded.

“That’s okay,” The man said. “We’re not welcome at Home Warehouse either.”
