Some archeologists found the remains of Jesus in a burial cave near Jerusalem. Concerned at the theological import of the find they decided to contact leaders of various churches before publically announcing their finds. They first called the Pope, who was horrified. However, after some consideration he agreed, "I will support your findings and issue a public statement." The archeologists then called the Methodist church council. The leaders were outraged and insisted that the conclusions were erronious. They too agreed to send out an announcement. Exasperated the archeologists called the Episcopal Bishop of New York. After worriedly explaining to him what they had found there was a long pause. Finally the Bishop said "Oh, so he existed?"
