The Story of Lott

We’ve already established that the Lord moves in some mysterious ways, but perhaps not as mysterious as those of Clyde Lott.

1). Lott, a Mississippi revivalist preacher and farmer, has been trying to bring about the second coming by raising a group of blemish-free, red WHAT?

A. Goats
B. Cattle
C. Horses
D. Pigs
E. Cocks

2). How many has he raised so far?

A. 100
B. 50
C. 20
D. 1

1). B: Cattle. You’re going to have to bear with us on this one.

Apparently there is a reference in the Book of Numbers to the fact that a sacrifice of a blemish-free red heifer will lead the way to the return of the Messiah. (Technically, the cow must be sacrificed and burned by a Jewish high priest, then its ashes used to purify the site upon which the Jews will rebuild the Holy Temple, which was destroyed by Romans in AD 70.)

2). D: Sadly, Lott has only raised one blemish-free red heifer so far.
