Hans Kung, Karl Rahner and Cardinal Ratzinger
[NOTE: Unless you are a theologian, this joke may not make sense.]

Hans Kung, Karl Rahner and Cardinal Ratzinger all died and went to heaven on the same day. St. Peter comes into the waiting room and looks around. He says, "Gentlemen, we've got a few errors to clear up before you can enter the Kingdom of Heaven," and calls Hans Kung into his office.

After about an hour, Kung comes out, obviously shaken, muttering, "Now I see. How could I have been so wrong?" Then St. Peter calls Karl Rahner into his office.

After about two hours, Rahner emerges, on the verge of tears, whimpering, "Now I see. How could I have been so wrong?"

Finally, St. Peter calls Cardinal Ratzinger into his office. After eight hours, St. Peter emerges, exhausted and muttering, "Now I see. How could I have been so wrong . . . ?"
