A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about churches around
>the country. He started by flying to San Francisco, and started
>working east from there.
>Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making
>notes.  He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was
>intrigued with a sign which read "$10,000 a minute."   Seeking out the
>pastor he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that this golden phone is,
>in fact, a direct line to Heaven and if he  pays the price he can talk directly
>to God.
>The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way.  As he continued to
>visit churches in Seattle, Salt Lake, Denver, Chicago, Milwaukee, and
>around the United States, he found more phones, with the same sign,
>and the same answer from each pastor.
>Finally, he arrived in the lovely mountains of North Carolina. Upon
>entering a church, behold, he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS
>time, the sign read "Calls: 25 cents."
Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor. "Reverend, I have been in cities all across the country
>and in each church I have found this golden telephone and have been told it is a direct
>line to Heaven and that could talk to God, but, in the other churches the cost was
>$10,000 a minute.
>Your sign reads 25 cents a call.  Why?"

>(I just love this part)

>The pastor, smiling benignly, replied,

>"Son, you're in the South now, and it's a local call."
