A Priest and a Rabbi were sitting next to each other in an airport.  After a few minutes of silence the Priest looks over and says, “Rabbi, is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?” the Rabbi responded, “Yes, that is still one of our laws.” The Priest then asked, “Well have you ever tasted pork before?”

To which the Rabbi replied, “Yes on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.” The Priest nodded his understanding.

They sat in silence again for a bit and the Rabbi turned to the priest and said, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”

The Priest replied, “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.”

The Rabbi then asked, “Well Father have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?”

The Priest replied, “Yes Rabbi, on one occasion I was week and I broke with my faith.”  The Rabbi nodded his understanding and remained in silent thought for about five minutes.

Finally the Rabbi said, “Beats the heck out of a ham sandwich, doesn’t it?”
