Only when it suits?

Isn’t it funny how people can change their opinions and standards and beliefs when it suits them to?

Here’s a story sent to me today. Made me laugh. Enjoy.

TEXAS BEER JOINT SUES CHURCH over LIGHTNING STRIKE

ONLY IN TEXAS …

Texas Beer Joint Sues Church In Mt. Vernon, Texas, Drummond’s Bar began
construction on expansion of their building to increase their business.

In response, the local Baptist church started a campaign to block the
bar from expanding with petitions and prayers. Work progressed right up
until the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the bar
and it burned to the ground.

After the bar burning to the ground by a lightning strike the church
folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about the power of
prayer, 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”.

In its reply to the court, the church vehemently denied all
responsibility or any connection to the building’s demise.

The judge read through the plaintiff’s complaint and  the defendant’s
reply and at the opening hearing he commented, “I  don’t know how I’m
going to decide this, but it appears from the paperwork  that we have a
bar owner who believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church
congregation that now does not.”

True Story.
