Joc showed up at Mass one Sunday & the priest almost fell down when he saw him. He'd never been to church in his life.
After Mass, the priest caught up with him & said, " Jock , I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What made ya come?"
Jock said, "I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced me hat & I really, really love that hat. I knew that Wee Jum had a hat just like mine & I knew he came to church every Sunday. I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass & figured he would leave it in the back of church. So, I was going to leave after Communion & steal Wee Jum's hat."
The priest said, "Well, Jock , I notice that ya didna steal Wee Jum's hat. What changed your mind?"
Jock replied, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments I decided that I didn't need to steal Wee Jum's hat after all."
With a tear in his eye the priest gave Jock a big smile & said;" After I talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' ya decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in hell, eh ?"
Jock slowly shook his head. "No, Father, after ya talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery ' I remembered where I left ma hat."
