A Jewish lawyer was troubled by the way his son turned out, and went to see
his Rabbi about it.
"I brought him up in the faith, gave him a very expensive bar mitzvah, cost
me a fortune to educate him. Then he tells me last week he has decided to
be a Christian. Rabbi, where did I go wrong?"
"Funny you should come to me," said the Rabbi. "Like you I, too, brought my
boy up in the faith, put him through University, cost me a fortune, then
one day he, too, tells me he has decided to become a Christian."
"What did you do?" asked the Lawyer. "I turned to God for the answer"
replied the Rabbi. "And what did he say?" pressed the Lawyer. "God said,
'Funny you should come to me...' "
