The priest was preparing a dying man for his long day's journey into the night.
Whispering firmly, the priest said, "Denounce the devil! Let him know how little you think of his evil!"
The dying man said nothing. The priest repeated his order.
Still the dying man said nothing. The priest asked, "Why do you refuse to denounce the devil and his evil?"
The dying man said weakly, "Until I know where I'm heading, I don't think I ought to aggravate anybody."
