A pastor had a really bad golf habit and, since most of his days were spent helping the community, the only time he could sneak a round in was on Sunday morning. He felt quite guilty about this but just couldn’t find any other time to play.
One Sunday morning he was alone on the links, and God and St. Peter happened to look down upon him. St. Peter said, “Look at that man of God, playing golf before church on Sunday, I believe that he should be punished.”
“Your right,” God replied, and snapped his fingers just as the pastor made contact. The ball sailed right at the hole and dropped in for an ace.
“Why did you do that?” St. Peter said. “I think he should be punished and you give him a hole-in-one!”
“Sure,” God replied, “but who’s he gonna tell?”
