Mark Obenshain palled around with John Whitbeck

Mark Obenshain with John Whitbeck, July 30, 2013.
John Whitbeck, September 17, 2013:
So you know, I'm a Catholic, and one of the things that we- I, by the way I'm John Whitbeck. I'm the 10th District Chairman, one of the things that we celebrate recently is the new pope- [inaudible]. 
And when the pope is elected, the head of the Jewish faith goes to the Vatican and brings a ceremonial piece of paper, its very old and it dates back hundreds of years, and he puts in the pope's office and he ceremonially hands the piece of paper to the pope, the new pope. And then the new pope ceremonially rejects it. And the head of the Jewish faith leaves . . .

Well, this time around, the Pope said: 'I gotta find out what's on this piece of paper.' So he actually takes it from the head of the Jewish faith, he looks at it, and he closes it [inaudible] and his Jewish counterpart says 'what was it?' And he says, 'that was the bill for the last supper.'

[Crowd laughs]
