The Difference between a Baptist and a Catholic

A little boy was walking
down a dirt road after church one Sunday afternoon when he came to a crossroads
where he met a little girl coming from the other direction.

“Hello,” said the little boy.

“Hi,” replied the little girl.

“Where are you going?” asked the little boy.

“I’ve been to church this morning and I’m on my way home,” answered
the little girl.

“Me too,” replied the little boy. “I’m also on my way home from church.”

“Which church do you go to?” asked the little boy. “I go to the Baptist
church back down the road,” replied the little girl.

“What about you?

“I go to the Catholic church back at the top of the hill,” replied
the little boy.

They discover that they are both going the same way so they decided that they’d
walk together. They came to a low spot in the road where spring rains had
partially flooded the road so there was no way that they could get across to the
other side without getting wet.

“If I get my new Sunday dress wet my Mom’s going to skin me alive,”
said the little girl.

“My Mom’ll tan my hide too if I get my new Sunday suit wet,” replied
the little boy.

“I tell you what I think I’ll do,” said the little girl. “I’m gonna
pull off all my clothes and hold them over my head and wade across.”

“That’s a good idea,” replied the little boy. “I’m going to do the
same thing with my suit.”

So they both undressed and waded across to the other side without getting their
clothes wet. They were standing there in the sun waiting to drip dry before
putting their clothes back on when the little boy finally remarked, “You
know, I never did realize before just how much difference there really is
between a Baptist and a Catholic.”
