There is a story about a popular
young Baptist preacher, who
on Sunday morning announces to the congregation that he will
not renew his contract, and is moving on to a larger
congregation that will pay him more. There is a hush. No one
wants him to leave.
Brother William (Bubba) Scoles, who owns several car dealer-
ships, stands up and announces, "If the preacher stays, I'll
provide him with a new sedan every year, and his lovely wife
with a minivan, to transport their children!" The congregation
amens, and applauds.
Brother Billy Bob Tindall, the entrepreneur and investor,
stands and says, "If the preacher stays, I'll double his
salary, and establish a foundation to guarantee the college
education of his children!!" More amens and applause.
Sister Ella May Rouse, aged 70, stands and announces, "If the
preacher stays, I'll give him sex!"
There is a hush. The preacher, blushing, asks, "Sister Ella
May, whatever possessed you to say that?"
Sister Ella May answers, "I just asked my husband how we could
help, and he said, 'Screw the preacher.'"
