The second half of the Jesuit Fr. James Martin's talk was devoted to Q&A, and he fielded topics ranging from women's ordination to why he left G.E. He also explained how important it is for Catholics and non-Catholics alike to realize that there is a humorous side to religion. He recounted the story of Nathaniel in the Gospel of John, who upon hearing that Jesus was from Nazareth asked, "Can anything good come from Nazareth?" "By discussing the importance of humor in faith, Fr. Martin brought up a point very few others have, and one that gives Catholicism a less-serious twist," Jacob Torpey, FCRH '13, said. Before concluding his talk to sign copies of his books, he told several of his favorite jokes regarding Jesuits, one of which involved heaven-bound priests and nuns from different religious orders being summoned to God, who from His throne asked each one, "What do you believe?" According to Martin, the Jesuit said, "I believe you're sitting in my chair."
