In a small mid western conservative town, a new bar/tavern started a building to open up their business.
The local Baptist church started a campaign to block the bar from opening with petitions and prayers.
Work progressed, however, right up till the week before opening, when a lightning strike hit the bar and it burned to the ground.
The church folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, till 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 buildings demise in its reply to the court.
As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the paperwork at the hearing and commented, "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but as it appears from the paperwork, we have a bar owner that believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that doesn't!"

Obviously, it was an act of God. The church should pay up but the bar owner should look for another line of work since God wasn't happy with this one...
