    the church's golden telephone

    An American decided to write a book about famous churches around
    the world. For his first chapter he decided to write about American
    churches. So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando,
    thinking that he would work his way across the country from South to
    North. On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when
    he noticed golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read
    "$10,000 per call". The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who
    was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied
    that it was direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk
    to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way. Next
    stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same
    golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was
    the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun
    what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and
    that for $10,000 he could talk to God. "O.K., thank you," said the American.
    He then traveled to Indianapolis, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and
    New York. In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same
    "$10,000 per call" sign under it. The American, upon leaving Vermont saw a
    sign for Canada and decided to see if Canadians had the same phone.
    He arrived in Toronto, and again, there was the same golden telephone,
    but this time the sign under it read "25 cents per call."
    The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign.
    "Father, I've traveled all over America and I've seen this same golden
    telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven,
    but in every state the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?"
    The priest smiled and answered, "You're in Canada now son, it's a local call".
