just came in: A Phone Call To Heaven -:))

An  man decided to write a book about famous  churches around the world. So  he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to  Orlando  , thinking that he would start by working his  way across the USA  from South to North. 

On his first day he  was inside a church taking photographs when he  noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall  with a sign that read '$10,000 per call'.

The man, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used  for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you  could talk to God.

The man thanked  the priest and went along his way. Next  stop was in Atlanta  . There, at a very large cathedral,  he saw the same looking golden telephone with  the same sign under it.  He  wondered if this was the same kind of telephone  he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line  to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to  God.

'O.K., thank you,' said the man .

He  then travelled all across America, Europe,  England, Japan, New Zealand.  In every church  he saw the same looking golden telephone with  the same '$US10,000 per call' sign under it.  The man decided  to travel to Australia to see if Australians had  the same phone.

He arrived at Ulladulla in Australia and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same looking golden  telephone, but this time the sign under it read  '40 cents per call.'  The man was  surprised so he asked the priest about the sign.

 'Father, I've travelled all  over  the world and I've seen this same golden  telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is  a direct line to Heaven, but in all of them  price  was $10,000 per call.  Why is it so cheap  here?'

The  priest smiled and answered, 'You're in  Australia  now, son - "This is Heaven," so it's a local  call'.
