It was not until panel four that I realized he's talking about Minister (Christianity), not Minister (government). I'm having a slow day

The Minister's Cat is Avaricious, apparently.

Long time listener, first time caller, and I do believe this is first. :P

Panel four, the last line - truth! Many of the ministers in my town drive Lexuses or Cadillacs as a matter of preference, not price.

Mullet-man has been listening to too much Genesis (the band, not the book).
"Now I believe the Lord came to me
He said give me 18 million dollars by the weekend
so I may build that theme park for the lord
so I can put gasoline in all my limousines
for the Lord, would I lie to you?!
Everything's gonna be alright!"

Ministers tend to a congregation, priests tend to a parish.

Panel 1 full of WIN! I can just hear the dejection in that one word: "yeah."

@Robin, nah not a slow day. Many readers of Scott's comics are afflicted with this condition. I don't know the name of it, but it's symptoms include "If there is a way to misinterpret what Scott is trying to say, you will".

It add enjoyment to the comic with comments that ensue from this condition.

Don't forget the #1 reason to become a man of the cloth - You get to have your own constitutional laws!

At first I didn't understood 'minister' as 'pastor' : the last panel let me a little confused =S

I like being a lowly non-king.

Coming from a country with a house of parliament, lots of ministers and even a prime minister, this only made sense once i got to the last caption, then I had to re-read it. funnier the second time.

@Wally I thought the #1 reason for becoming a man of the cloth was "It's indoor work with no heavy lifting, do you want to be a ploughman like your father?"

This strip makes me wonder, have you ever done a strip about parallel universes? If you knew that there was a universe somewhere in which your counterpart achieved everything you ever wanted, would it console you, or deepen your depression?

I am a Rabbi (Jewish Minister of sorts...) We do NOT get into the occupation for the money, as we soon realized we are seen by our congregants as their employees; and seldom are employees allowed to earn more than their employers. Non the less, some times, our compensation is such that we can live well and make them feel better about themselves.

It's perfectly plausible for a minister to make a crap-ton o' cash. All he has to have is charisma and a live t.v. audience.

Is it just in the USA that people go into religion for the money?
