Texas Beer Joint Sues Church

BEER JOINT SUES CHURCH over LIGHTNING STRIKE
ONLY IN TEXAS...
In Mt. Vernon, Texas, Drummond's Bar began construction
on expansion of their building to increase their business.
In response, the local Baptist church started a campaign to block the bar
from expanding with petitions and prayers. Work progressed right up until
the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the bar and it burned to
After the bar was burned to the ground by a lightning strike,
the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about “the power of prayer”,
until the bar owner sued the church on the grounds that the church "was
ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, either through direct
or indirect actions or means".
In its reply to the court, the church vehemently denied all responsibility
or any connection to the building's demise.
The judge read through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply
and at the opening hearing he commented, "I don't know how I'm going to
decide this, but it appears from the paperwork that we have a bar owner who believes
in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that now does not."

I think it gives new meaning to "Be careful what you wish for."
