Bar Owner Law Suit

TEXAS Bar Sues Church
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.'
