Back in the early nineties, the joke went around about the newspaper publisher who decided to retire. He had three sons. He wished to transfer leadership of the paper to one of his sons. To facilitate his choice, he declared a competition. The son who wrote the most sensational headline, using three words or less, would win.
The first son wrote a pretty good headline: “Reagan Turns Communist.”
The second son’s headline proclaimed: “Hussein Becomes Christian.”
The third son, though, won the prize: “Pope Elopes.”
I suppose to the world, the news of the gospel sounds sensational. But I am so glad it is true.
