As you may or may not know, the Catholic church used to have a rule that when a woman went to church on Sundays, she should wear a hat to show respect to God.
It was during these days that a stripper felt all alone in the world. She needed some guidance. She knew that she needed God. It just so happened that there were some churches across the street from her. So she went into the first one. It was a Baptist church. They wouldn't even see her. Neither would the Presbyterian church next door. Feeling more alone, confused, and distraught than before, she tried her last hope on the Catholic church down the street.
She saw the priest outside and immediately told him that she would like to join his church. He said, "I'm sorry, but we can't allow you." By this time she was at the end of her rope. She couldn't believe so many of God's servants could be so rude. She decided to ask the priest one more time. He again said, "I'm sorry, but we can't let you in here." She quickly retorted, "Well why not? I have a perfect right!" The priest answered back, "Yes! and an esquisite left, but you CAN'T come in here without a hat!!"
