A young public school teacher with obvious liberal tendencies explained to her class of children that she was an atheist. She asked them if they were atheists, too. Not really knowing what atheism was, but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands exploded into the air like fireworks.
There was, however, one exception. A beautiful girl named Lucy had not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asked her why she had decided to be different. “Because I’m not an atheist,” she declared.
Then the teacher asked, “What are you?”
“I’m a Christian.”
The teacher was perturbed. Her face flushed red. She asked Lucy why she was a Christian. Lucy replied, “Well, my mom is a Christian, and my dad is a Christian, so I am a Christian too.” The teacher was angry by now. “That’s no reason,” she said loudly. “What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a moron. What would you be then?”
A pause and a smile, “Then,” said Lucy,
“I’d probably be an atheist.” -McKenzie Bulletin
