On Missionaries in Papua New Guinea

 Huli Wigmen tribesman

Recently overheard conversation between a frizzy haired member of the remote Huli Wigmen tribe in Papua New Guinea and the missionary who brought him the “gift” of organised “modern” religion:

Huli Tribesman: So, do you think I will now go to Heaven or Hell?

Missionary: Oh, Heaven, if you are good.

Huli Tribesman: But if you hadn’t come here and told me all about it then I wouldn’t go to Hell would I?

Missionary: No you wouldn’t.

Huli Tribesman: So, why did you tell me?

Think about it.
