Judgement by results

Another funny joke I received in a forwarded email. Hope you like it… 🙂

A cropped image of Saint Peter

A priest dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him
is a guy who’s dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and

Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, ‘Who are you, so that I may know
whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven ?’

The guy replies, ‘I’m Jack, retired airline pilot from Houston.’

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, ‘Take
this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.’ The pilot goes
into Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next, it’s the priest’s turn. He stands erect and booms out, ‘I am
Father Bob, pastor of Saint Mary’s for the last 43 years.’

Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the priest, ‘Take this cotton
robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.’

‘Just a minute,’ says the good father. ‘That man was a pilot and he gets
a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can
this be?’

‘Up here – we go by results,’ says Saint Peter. ‘When you preached –
people slept. When he flew, people prayed.’
