The elder priest, speaking to the younger priest,
said, "I know you were reaching out to the young
people of the parish when you installed bucket seats
to replace the first four pews. And it worked very
well. We got the front of the church filled first."
The young priest nodded and the old one continued,
"And, you told me a little more beat to the music
would bring young people back to church, so I
supported you when you brought in that rock 'n roll
gospel choir that packed our little church all the way
to the balcony."
"So," asked the young priest, "what's the problem?"
"Well", said the elder priest, "I'm afraid you've gone
too far with the drive-thru confessional."
But Father," protests the young priest. "My
confessions have nearly doubled since I began that!"
"I know, I know, my son, but the flashing neon sign
"TOOT 'N TELL OR GO TO HELL" ... really has to go."
