Protestant vs Catholic

A Protestant moved into a completely Catholic community. Being
good Catholics they welcomed him into their community. But,
also because they were good Catholics they did not eat red meat
on Fridays. So, when their neighbor began barbequeing some
juicy steak on Friday night, they began to squirm.

They were so annoyed that they went to talk to him about it.
After much talk they conviced him to become Catholic. The next
Sunday he went to the priest and the priest sprinkled holy
water on him and said: You were born Protestant. You were
raised Protestant. But now you are Catholic!

And so, the next Friday, as the neighbors sat down to eat their
fish, they were disturbed by the smell of roast beef coming
from the neighboring house. They went over to talk to the new
Catholic because he knew he was not supposed to eat beef on
Fridays. When they saw him, he was sprinkling ketchup on the
beef saying: You were born a cow. You were raised a cow. But
now you are fish!
