Random Quote #96 topic: religion, Stuff that might offend religious people, mostly Christians.

Seems like these four rabbis had a series of theological arguments, and three
were always in accord against the fourth. One day, the odd rabbi out, with
the usual "3 to 1, majority rules" statement that signified that he had lost
again, decided to appeal to a higher authority. "Oh, God!" he cried. "I
know in my heart that I am right and they are wrong! Please show me a sign,
so they too will know that I understand Your laws."
It was a beautiful, sunny day. As soon as the rabbi finished his
plaint, a storm cloud moved across the sky above the four. It rumbled once
and dissolved. "A sign from God! See, I'm right, I knew it!" But the other
three disagreed, pointing out that stormclouds form on hot days.
So he asked again: "Oh, God, I need a bigger sign to show that I am
right and they are wrong. So please, God, a bigger sign."
This time four stormclouds appeared, rushed toward each other to form
one big cloud, and a bolt of lightning knocked down a tree ten feet away from
the rabbis. The cloud dispersed at once. "I told you I was right!" insisted
the loner, but the others insisted that nothing had happened that could not
be explained by natural causes.
The insisting rabbi is all ready to ask for a *very big* sign when
just as he says "Oh God..." the sky turns pitch black, the earth shakes, and
a deep, booming voice intones, "HEEEEEEEE'S RIIIIIIIGHT!"
The sky returns to normal. The one rabbi puts his hands on his hips
and snarls, "Well?" "Okay, okayyyy," replied another, "so now it's 3 to 2!"
