    A bar called Drummond's (in Mt Vernon, Texas) began construction on an expansion of their building, hoping to "grow" their business.

    In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding - petitions, prayers, etc.

    About a week before the bar's grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning struck the bar and burned it to the ground!

    Afterward, the church folks were rather smug - bragging about "the power of prayer".

    The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the church... "Was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, through direct actions or indirect means."

    Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise.

    The judge read carefully through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply.

    He then opened the hearing by saying:

    "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but it appears from the paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

    True story!!

    Good story! I think the judge must be a wise man ..... a real turnaround for both parties.
