Texas Beer Joint Sues A Church!‏

In a small Texas town, ( Mount Vernon ) Drummond's bar began construction
on a new building to increase their business...


The local Baptist church started a campaign to block the bar from opening
with petitions and prayers.

Work progressed right up till the week before opening when lightning
struck the bar and it burned to the ground.

The church folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, 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.

The church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the
building's demise in its reply to the court.

As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the
paperwork...

At the hearing he commented, 'I don't know how I'm going to decide this,
but as it appears from the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in
the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not.
