This was very clever. A friend posted it on my site.

“When someone tells me they are non-denominational — I tell them I am pre-denominational.”

For those who don’t get it:  pre-denomination means “before the Protestant Reformation (read: Rebellion).” The Protestants gave birth to the every multiplying denominations. Before them there was the pre-denomination — the Catholic Church.

By the way, the term “denomination” derives originally from “taking a new name.”
