Just Because

The Pope took a couple of days off to visit the mountains for some sight-seeing.
              He was cruising along the campground in the Popemobile when there
              was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods. A helpless
              Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, a “Save the Whales” / “Bush
              Lied” T-shirt and a tree hugger hat, was screaming while
              struggling frantically, thrashing around trying to free himself
              from the jaws of a 10 foot grizzly.
              As the Pope watched horrified, a group of Republican loggers came
              racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum into the bear’s chest.
              The other two reached up and pulled the bleeding semiconscious
              Democrat from the bear’s grasp. Then using long clubs, the three
              loggers finished off the bear and two of them threw it onto the
              bed of their truck while the other tenderly placed the injured
              Democrat in the back seat.
              As they prepared to leave, the Pope summoned them to come over.
              “I give you my blessing for your brave actions!” he told them. “I
              heard there was a bitter hatred between Republican loggers and
              Democratic environmental activists but now I’ve seen with my own
              eyes that this is not true.”
              As the Pope drove off, one of the loggers asked his buddies “Who
              was that guy?”
              “It was the Pope”, another replied, “He’s in direct contact with
              God and has access to all God’s wisdom.”
              “Well,” the logger said, “he may have access to all God’s wisdom
              but he sure doesn’t know anything about bear hunting! By the way,
              is the bait holding up, or do we need to go back to town and
              snatch another one?”
