Easter parable

In honor of Easter, and to respond to DA’s joke post, here is an old one back at you.

Jesus was out wandering when he came to a small town. A large crowd had gathered in the town square, and Jesus walked through up to the front to see what was going on. A woman had been accused of adultery, and was tied down and about to be stoned to death. Jesus stopped in front of the crowd and looked at everyone, and the noisy mob grew quiet. In a soft voice Jesus started to talk about sins and sinners, and ended up with the famous line "let he who is without sin cast the first stone".

After a brief pause a large rock came flying out of the crowd, striking the tied woman right in the face. Jesus looked up, and the crowd moved away from the person that threw the stone. Jesus looked at her and said "Damn it mom, stop following me".
