A race of aliens visits Earth one day. They come in peace; and, surprisingly, they speak perfect English.
Obviously it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event. All of the heads of world government and all the religious leaders want to speak to the aliens. So a meeting is set up.
Leaders from across the globe each get a turn to question the aliens. When it’s the Pope’s turn, he asks, “Do you know about our lord and savior Jesus Christ?”
“You mean J.C?” responds one of the aliens. “Yeah, we know him! He’s the greatest, isn’t he? J.C. swings by every year to make sure that we are doing okay.”
The Pope is flabbergasted, as are the rest of the dignitaries. After a few awkward moments the Pope follows up by asking, “He visits every year?! It’s been more than two millennia for us, and we’re still awaiting his SECOND coming!”
The alien sees that the Pope is rattled by this, and tries to soften the blow. “Gee, I don’t know,” he replies. “Maybe he likes our chocolates better than yours?”
“Chocolates? What are you talking about?” the Pope says, incredulously. “What does that have to do with anything?”
“Well, when J.C. first visited our planet we gave him a huge box of chocolates,” the alien says. “Why? What did you guys do?”
There are Evangelical Christians who would have happily trotted off with the devil in the desert.
“But his strong leadership is what’s important. I mean, he’s Satan. We know he’s not a choirboy.
Plus, Mr. Satan promised us he wouldn’t kill the babies until AFTER they’re born.”
