    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
    the ground.

    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."

    Could not resist passing this on to our best friends as she is the daughter of a baptist minister and is always talking about things like the "power of prayer"

    If I was the judge I would rule in favor of the beer joint. You have nothing to lose if God does not exists and you don't have to worry about getting hit by lighting if he does.
