Only if you crucify him

In one of their periodic efforts to eradicate religious belief in the Soviet Union, the Communist party sent KGB agents to the nation’s churches on a Sunday morning. One agent was struck by the deep devotion of an elderly woman who was kissing the feet of a life-size carving of Christ on the cross.

“Grandmother,” he said. “Are you also prepared to kiss the feet of the beloved general secretary of our great Communist party?”

“Why, of course,” came the immediate reply. “But only if you crucify him first.”
