Drummond vs. the Baptists
In a small Texas town, the owner of Drummond's Bar began
construction on a new building to increase his 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
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."
