St. Peter’s Politics
Looking for a spectacular bungalow-mansion in heaven?

While standing in line at the Pearly Gates, a minister stood sizing up the applicants. The guy in front of him was obviously wealthy, with a tailored suit and expensive briefcase.

When they got to the gates, St. Peter asked the well-dressed man, “So what was your occupation?”
The man answered, “I was a politician.”
St. Peter ran over and hit a huge gong.
Immediately full choirs of angels appeared, singing a joyful chorus. A golden carpet rolled out, leading to one of the biggest mansions in all of heaven.

The minister thought to himself, “Well, if a politician gets that sort of welcome, I can hardly wait to see what I get!”

So he stepped up to St. Peter and announced, “I was a full-time minister for 40 years, working day and night for God.”
Without even looking up, St. Peter handed him a rather ordinary key and pointed him to a nice, but not particularly spectacular bungalow-mansion.

“There must be some mistake,” the minister replied. “That politician got a hero’s welcome, but I only get a smallish house.”

St. Peter replied, “we’ve got a lot of ministers up here, but he’s our first politician!”
