A man went to visit the Pope in Rome. While being shown around the offices, he noticed a red telephone sitting on the Pope's desk next to the regular one.
"What's that?" he asked.
"Oh, that's our direct line to G-d," answered the Pope. "It costs $10,000 a minute, but it's well worth it." The man fervently agreed, but he didn't have $10,000 to spend, so they moved on with their tour.
Some time later, the same man went to visit the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem. There too, while being shown around the offices, he noticed a red telephone next to the regular phone.
"Let me guess...is that your direct line to G-d?" the man asked.
"Yes, it is, " came the Chief Rabbi's reply.
"How much does it cost a minute?" he asked.
"Oh, I think these days it's about ten cents a minute," the Chief Rabbi calmly replied.
"Only ten cents a minute?!" the man exclaimed. "Why, the Pope has one
of those in his office, but his costs $10,000 a minute!"
The Chief Rabbi smiled and said, "Well, sir, that's because from here it's a local call."
Okay, so ignoring the obvious problems of ascribing even a small amount of theological veracity to the Catholic Church and the fact that no such phone exists, I was wondering: If you had access to that phone, and you could ask just one question and a Bat Kol would come out from Shamayim (or the telephone, at any rate) and tell you the answer--what would you ask? Would you ask anything at all?
