The Tinfoil Hat Emporium ® TM: An old priest was dying …
An old priest was dying and he sent a message for Canadian Prime Minister, Steven Harper and the Leader of the Opposition, Michael Ignatief, to come to his home.
When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom.
As they entered the room, the dying priest held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The priest grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling.
For a time, no one said anything.
Both Harper and Ignatief were touched and flattered that the old priest would ask them to be with him during his final moment. They were also puzzled because the priest had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them. Finally, Harper asked, “Why did you ask for us to come here?”
The old priest mustered up some strength, then said weakly, “Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s how I want to go.”
