A young son of a Baptist minister was in church one morning when he saw for the first time the rite of baptism by immersion.

He was greatly interested in it, and the next morning proceeded to baptize his three cats -- in the bathtub.

The kitten bore it very well, and so did the young cat, but the old family cat rebelled. It struggled with him, clawed and tore him, and got away.

With considerable effort he caught it again and preceded with the ceremony. But she acted worse than ever, clawed at him, spit, and scratched his hands and face.

Finally, he threw her on the floor in disgust, and said, "Fine! Be a Methodist if you want to!"
