A guilt-ridden young man went to a priest to confess

He sat in the confessional box and the priest asked from the other side, “What is troubling you?”
“Well,” said the young man, “I was with this woman and I was overcome with lust for her, and… well… we went somewhere a little more private….”
“Were you intimate with her?” The priest asked.
“Oh, no!” Said the young man. “We rubbed against each other, but I didnt put it in.”
“Rubbing against each other is the same as putting it in.” Said the priest. “Say 5 ‘Our Fathers’ and put 20 in the donation box on your way out.”
The young man said his “Our Father’s”, and took out a 20. He thought for a second, and just rubbed the bill on the outside on the box before pocketing it.
“Hold on.” Said the priest. “You didn’t put the 20 in the box.”
“No,” said the young man. “But I rubbed it on the outside, and according to you, that’s the same as putting it in.”
