How would you like to bethe Judge?

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
withpetitions and prayers. Work progressed right up till the week beforeopening 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
throughdirect or indirect actions or means. The church vehemently denied allresponsibility or any connection to the building's demise in its replyto 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.'
