Something hilarious happened in church today.

My pastor was preaching a sermon on loving others, (and the difference between love and affection.) He was almost at the end, and he wanted to finish with Luke 19: 1-9. This is the story of Zaccheus the tax collector, and how Jesus went to his house. I'll quote it here from BibleGateway

19 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
2 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.
4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.
5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him,and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.
7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”

8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”

9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;

The hilarity came when he got to verse 7: "7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.” Pastor was wondering who "they" were, and he ended up saying things like the PC police, we were all starting to laugh, when someone several rows behind me, (I usually sit in the third or fourth row,) yelled "democrats!" Everyone cracked up laughing! Lol pastor said if there are any democrats in here we love you, but hah ha hah! I wish I would have recorded that, it was absolutely hilarious!
