In a small town, a person decided to open up his Bar business, which
was right opposite to the Temple. The Temple & its congregation
started a campaign to block the Bar from opening with petitions and
prayed daily against his business.
Work progressed. However, when it was almost complete and was about to
open a few days later, a strong lightning struck the Bar and it was
burnt to the ground.
The temple folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, till
the Bar owner sued the Temple authorities on the grounds that the
Temple through its congregation & prayers was ultimately responsible
for the demise of his bar shop, either through direct or indirect
actions or means.
In its reply to the court, the temple vehemently denied all
responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to
the bar shop’s demise. 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 case, but it appears from
the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer
and we have an entire temple and its devotees that doesn’t.”
