Default Unlike Baptist Church, Bar owner Believes in Power of Prayer

"In a small Texas town, ( Mt. 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.”

Gotta love those Baptists.

That's cute.

No lawyer in his/her right mind would take this to court. They would be just as fruity as... well, the story itself.

I've seen stranger cases.
Tis a corollary of Murphy's law, that anything that can be litigated will be litigated.

Well... if you ask someone to burn down a building, but don't compensate them at all for doing it, can you legally be at fault if the burning burns down?

EDIT:
Hehe. "if the burning burns down". Burning should be building.

Not sure how Baptists approach their god in supplication, but I assume it's on the basis of, "You do this for us and we will do this for you."
