Based on the Methodists I've known I've come up with a working theory about those folks. #1 the Methodists I've known have been very fine people. #2 I have a theory about why the Romans never threw Methodists to the lions. There are two reasons for this: #1 the denomination of Methodists did not get started until the early 19th century so they missed out on all the insanity in the coliseum; and, secondly, if anybody had ever tried to throw the Methodists I know to the lions, the lions would have called in sick. Seriously, the lions would have gone out on strike with or without approval from their union. Yes, I am saying that rather than face the Methodists, the lions would have called a wildcat strike.
