In the small Texas town of 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.”
