    A Texas Lawsuit

    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...

    A local 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.

    Now that's funny. It's amazing how a lawsuit can change that power of belief LOL.
