Default Golden Phone To Heaven!

A man in Topeka , Kansas decided to write a book about Churches around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and started working east from there.

Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making notes.
He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign, which read 'Calls: $10,000 a minute.'

Seeking out the pastor he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to God.

The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found more phones, with the
same sign, and the same answer from each pastor.

Finally, he arrived in Louisiana. Upon entering a cathedral in Baton Rouge he saw the usual golden telephone.

But THIS time, the sign read 'Calls: .35 cents.'

Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, but as it happened the bishop was available. 'Bishop Muench, I have been in cities all across the country and in each church I have found this golden
telephone and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk to God, but in the other
churches the cost was $10,000 a minute. Your sign reads only .35 cents a call. Why?

The priest, smiling benignly, replied : 'Son, you're in Baton Rouge, Louisiana now, home of the LSU Tigers, Tabby's Blues Box, Community Coffee and the best cooking this side of heaven. You're in God's Country. It's only a local call.'

You hafta love it!

I've met the Bishop and watched an LSU game with him. I know he love the Tigers, so this story must be true. In fact, I attend mass at the cathedral so I'm going to look for the Golden Phone To Heaven!
