A bit of religous humor

A Jewish businessman in Chicago sent his son to Israel for a year to  absorb the culture. When the son returned, he said, "Papa, I had a great  time in Israel. By the way, I converted to Christianity."
"Oy vey," said the father. "What have I done?"
He took his problem to his best friend. "Ike," he  said, "I sent my son to Israel, and he came home a Christian. What can I  do?" "Funny you  should ask," said Ike. "I too, sent my son to Israel, and he also came  home a Christian. Perhaps we should go see the rabbi. So they did,  and they explained  their problem to the rabbi.
"Funny you should ask," said the rabbi. "I, too, sent my son to Israel, and he also came home a Christian. What is happening to our young people?"
And so they all prayed, telling the Lord about their sons. As they finished their prayer, a voice came from the Heavens:
"Funny you should ask," said the booming voice: "I, too, sent my Son to Israel!
