A Mormon, a Jew, and an African-American arrive together at St. Peter's gate.
"Before you can be admitted," says St. Peter, "I'd like you each to tell me why you deserve to be here."
The Mormon speaks first, "I've devoted my life to helping my fellow man."
The Jew says, "I've given countless hours to the support of my community and to helping the State of Israel."
"And you?" says St. Peter, turning to the African-American.
"I spent my whole life in Boston, trying to improve race relations. I even married an Irish-Catholic girl."
"Really? When did this happen?"
"Oh, about ten minutes ago."
