A European decided to write a book about famous religious structures around the world. So he bought a plane ticket and
took a trip to London, thinking that he would work his way across the world.

On his first day, he was inside a church taking photographs,
when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a
sign that read "10,000 per call". The European, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied, that it wasa direct line to heaven and that for 10,000 you could talk to God. The European thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was Paris. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in London and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for 100,000 Francs (10,000) he could talk to God. "Okay, thank you", said the European.

He then traveled the rest of Europe, Africa, Asia,Australia
and the whole of the North and Central America in every church,
synagogue, mosque and temple he saw the same golden telephone with the equivalent of "10,000 per call" sign under it.

The European, upon leaving the U.S. saw a sign for Dominica
(Nature Isle) and decided to see if Dominicans had the same phone. He arrived in Roseau and again there was the golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read "25 cents per call".

The European was surprised so he asked the priest about the
sign."Father, I have traveled all over the world and I have seen this same golden telephone in many religious structures. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in every country the price was 10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?" The priest smiled and answered, "You are in Dominica now my son, it's a local call, this IS heaven."
