Miracles of prayer?

A difficult judgement ;-)


In a small town in India , a person decided to open up a bar business. Unfortunately the location of his bar was right opposite a Hindu temple. The temple authorities and devotees were furious and started a campaign to block the bar from opening, with petitions and daily prayers against the yamseng business.

But work progressed. However, when the development for the bar was completed, with the joint about to open a few days later, it was struck by lightning and burnt down to the ground.

The temple folks were jubilant with the unexpected but desired outcome, until the bar owner sued the temple authorities on grounds that they were, through their prayers, ultimately responsible for the destruction of his bar, because an act of God could only be through such continuous beseeching to the Divine.

In their response in court, the temple authorities rejected any responsibility for the destruction of the bar, pooh-poohing away the miraculous powers of prayers.

The judge commented: "I am not sure yet how I'm going to decide on this case, but it appears that we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayers but a temple authority and devotees who don't."

Doesn't the story (or the judge's comments) remind us of what's happening back here at home, ? Ha ha ha ha ha, have a good day ;-)

  5. A biker was riding by the zoo when he saw a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly the lion grabbed her by the cuff of her jacket and tried to pull her inside to slaughter her under the very eyes of her screaming parents.

    The biker jumped off his Harley, ran to the cage, and hit the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumped back and let go of the girl. The biker then took her to her terrified parents, who thanked him profusely.

    A reporter saw the whole scene, and addressing the biker, said, “Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve ever seen a man do in my whole life.”

    “Why, it was nothing, really,” said the biker. “The lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.”

    I noticed a patch on your jacket,” said the journalist.

    “Yeah, I ride with an Israeli motorcycle club,” the biker replied.

    “Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist with the LA Times, you know, and tomorrow’s papers will have this on the front page.”

    The following morning the biker bought the paper to see if it indeed had brought out the news of his actions. On the front page was the headline:


  6. Kekekekekek....good one Kaytee.

    I was expecting another Anwar-bashing episode...but pleasantly surprised.
