    Divine Intervention

    In a small town in America , a person decided to open up his bar business, which was right opposite to a church. The church & 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 church folk were rather smug in their outlook after that, till The bar owner sued the church authorities for $2million on the grounds that the church through its congregation and 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 church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to the bar shop's demise. In support of their claim they referred to the Benson study at Harvard that intercessionary prayer had no impact!

    As the case made its way into court, the Judge went through the paperwork and commented:

    'I don't know how I am 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 church and its devotees that doesn't!’

    Hannibal Lecter kept clippings of such things as this......
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Two Nuns are in the bath, one asks the other "Where's the soap?"

    "Yes, it does, rather!" replies the second.
