TEXAS BEER JOINT SUES LOCAL CHURCH OVER LIGHTNING STRIKE!
(This should keep you chuckling for a while)A bar called Drummond's (in Mt Vernon, Texas) began construction on an expansion of their building, hoping to "grow" their business.In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding - petitions, prayers, etc. About a week before the bar's grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning struck the bar and burned it to the ground!Afterward, the church folks were rather smug - bragging about "the power of prayer". The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the church ... "was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, through direct actions or indirect means."Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise.The judge read carefully through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply. He then opened the hearing by saying: "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but it appears from the paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

There was an incident in Germany a few years back (could also be one of these 'this is no shit' stories) where a church was struck by lighning and burned to the ground.
The insurance did not want to pay up as lighning strike is classed as a work of god, and as the church is the house of god, insurance lawers claimed it was arson and the insurance company doesn't pay in cases of arson.
It went through court for a few months untill the court told them "nice try boys"
