A missionary is sent into deepest darkest depths of Africa to
live with a tribe. He spends years with the people, teaching
them to read, write and good Christian values. One thing he
particularly stresses is the evil of sexual sin. "Thou must not
commit adultery or fornication!"
One day the wife of one of the Tribe’s noblemen gives birth to a
white baby. The village is shocked and the chief is sent by his
people to talk with the missionary.
"You have taught us of the evils of sexual sin, yet here a black
woman gives birth to a white child. You are the only white man
who has ever set foot in our village. Anyone can see what’s
going on here!"
The missionary replies, "No, no, my good man. You are mistaken.
What you have here is a natural occurrence – what is called an
albino. Look to thy yonder field. See a field of white sheep,
and yet amongst them is one black one. Nature does this on
The chief pauses for a moment then says, "Tell you what, you
don’t say anything about the sheep, I won’t say anything about
the white baby."
