Giving In To Temptation

Catholic priest, a Rabbi, and a Methodist minister were discussing sin, and the Methodist asked, "Tell me, guys, have you ever sinned and broken the laws of your religion?"

"I must admit," responded the Rabbi, "I was always very very curious about how pork tastes. So once, just once, I stopped at a barbecue restaurant when I was on a vacation and ate a pork sandwich. In fact, it was so delicious, I ate four of them - knowing, of course, I'd never have the nerve to sin again like that."

The Catholic joined in, "Well, I had the same curiosity about sex, and that being forbidden, I didn't know which sex would appeal to me more. So once, while in seminary, I had a sixteen-year-old girl and her brother at the same time. I was so overcome with feelings of guilt that I've never done anything like that again. Well, what about you, Pastor Bob?"

The Methodist said, "My besetting sin is gossip, and I just can't wait to get back and tell everybody in town what you guys have said!"
