A Catholic priest and a Mormon bishop are on the same airplane and seated beside each other.
“Is it still a requirement of your faith that you are not to drink coffee?” asked the priest.
The Mormon bishop responds, “Yes that is still one of our beliefs.”
The Catholic priest then asks, “Have you ever had a cup of coffee?”
“Yes,” says the Mormon bishop, “I have to admit on one occasion, I did succumb to temptation and tried a cup of coffee.”
The Catholic priest nods in understanding and goes on with his reading.
After a while, Mormon bishop speaks up and asks, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”
The Catholic priest replies, “Yes, that is still
one of our vows.”
“Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?” the bishop asked the priest.
The priest replied, “Yes, Bishop, on one occasion, I was weak and broke my vow.”
The bishop smiled, looked at the Catholic priest and said, “A lot better than coffee, isn’t it?”
