A Priest and a Rabbi were riding in a plane. After a while, the Priest
turned to the Rabbi and asked,
"Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?"
The Rabbi responded, "yes, that is still one of our beliefs."
The Priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?"
To which the Rabbi replied, "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to
temptation and tasted pork."
The Priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.
A while later, the Rabbi spoke up and asked the Priest, "Father,
is it still a requirement of your church that you remain chaste?"
The Priest replied "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith."
The Rabbi then asked him,
"Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?"
The Priest replied, "Yes Rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke
with my faith."
The Rabbi nodded understandingly for a moment and then said,
"a lot better than pork isn't it?"
