Churches and Squirrels

There were four country churches in a small Texas town;

The Baptist Church ,
The Methodist Church ,
The Catholic Church,
& The Jewish Synagogue.

Each church & Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.

In The Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided
to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were
twice as many there the next week.

The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation.
So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the
squirrels were back.

But - The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution.They baptized the squirrels and
 registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas & Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him
called circumcision and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.
