One for the bible thumpers
A Jewish businessman in Brooklyn decided to send his son to Israel to absorb some of the culture of the homeland. When the son returned,the father asked him to tell him about his trip. The son said, "Pop, I had a great time in Israel. By the way, I converted to Christianity.""Oh, my," said the father, "What have I done?" He decided to go ask his friend Jacob what to do.

Jacob said, "Funny you should ask. I too sent my son to Israel, and he also came back a Christian. Perhaps we should go see the rabbi and ask him what we should do. So they went to see the rabbi.

The rabbi said, "Funny you should ask. I too sent my son to Israel. He also came back a Christian. What is happening to our young people?"
"Perhaps we should go talk to God and ask him what to do."
The three of them prayed and explained what had happened to their sons and asked God what to do. Suddenly a voice came loud and clear from Heaven.

The Voice said, "Funny you should ask. I, too, sent my Son to Israel."

I think I heard that one before when among Evangelicals.

It is interesting the evolution in Judeo-Christian relations. Catholicism has a long and notorious antipathy to Judaism, but has softened in recent papacies.

Protestants have variously been anti-Semitic or pro-Israeli depending upon the specific denomination.

Whenever I have visited synagogues, I have also seen a mix of ecumenical behavior as well as anti-Christian contempt or bigotry.

The joke comes across as more propaganda than humor, btw. It has an air of Fundamentalism to its tone.
