Isn’t Jesus Supposed to Catch You When You Fall?

July 11th, 2008 · 25 Comments

I’ve always watched those evangelical preachers shows and wondered what happened to the people who faint and fall down when the preacher touches them? That’s easy, they sue the preacher.

A man in Knoxville did just that when he fainted in his church, according to The Tennessean.

The man claims he was overcome with the Holy Spirit. He fainted and hit his head. You know how your Mom used to say that when God closes a door, he opens another one. In this case, He did only to close it right back on his head again.

So the man filed a lawsuit against the church for $2.5 million in medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering. That’s gonna take a lot of bake sales if the church loses. I wonder if there actually ARE enough Rice Krispies treats in the world.

So the guy faints in a church because of God’s presence and he sues the church? Shouldn’t he sue God for tortious interference? Feh, yeah, I’d like to see that.
