The Bear, Prayer
A Democrat was walking through the woods.
‘What majestic trees!’ ‘What powerful rivers!’
‘What beautiful animals!’ He said to himself.
As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a
rustling in the bushes behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 8-foot grizzly bear charge towards
him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.
He tripped & fell on the ground.
He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.
At that instant moment, the Democrat cried out: ‘Oh my God!’
Suddenly time stopped. The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a loud voice
came out of the sky.
“You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don’t exist and even credit my creation to a cosmic accident.”
“Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?”
“Am I to count you as a believer?”
The Democrat looked directly into the light, and said: ‘It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a
Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a
‘Very well’, said the voice.
The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both
paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
“Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from Thy bounty through
Christ our Lord, Amen.”
In my opinion this could be either Democrat OR Republican.
