Your God is a thief

Once an emperor told to a Christian:

`Your God is a thief: he put Adam to sleep and stole him a rib.

The Christian got puzzled: how to answer to the emperor so that he would not lose his head.

But his daughter intervened:

`Father let me answer in your place.`

 And turning to the emperor she said:

`Your highness, I ask for justice: last night the thieves entered our house and stole us a silver cup and left instead a golden one.`

The emperor started to laugh:

`How good it would be if gods sent us such thieves every day!`

The girl then said:

`Then was it bad for Adam that instead of his rib he got Eve?`
