As a Christian

Yesterday I was approached by a woman in Brentwood High Street. She was walking around doing her shopping and, by the way she approached me, I thought she wanted assistance.

She started "Can I ask you something, as a Christian."

"Ah" I replied "I'm not a Christian." and I started to walk away.

She called me back and re-started making it clear that she was the Christian and I have to admit I had guessed that was the case.

"Can I ask you, as a Christian...."

I waited and nodded encouragement. She continued.

"Why do you think they crucified Jesus?"

My reply does not merit a mention but, with hindsight, there are so many potential replies that could have been very noteworthy.
