Hazards Of Worship

Now, this makes me smile.

"Last June, Matthew Lincoln was attending an evening service at his nondenominational Tennessee church when he approached the altar where a visiting minister was offering individual prayers for parishioners. Assigned 'catchers' were present on the altar in case congregants fainted, fell, or otherwise lost control. When the minister, Robert Lavala, slightly touched his forehead, the Knoxville-area man 'received the spirit and fell backwards.' Except nobody was there to catch him, Lincoln charges in a $2.5 million lawsuit filed yesterday against Lakewind Church and its pastors. Lincoln, 58, claims that he fell backwards, striking his head against the 'carpet-covered cement floor,' according to the Circuit Court complaint, which was first reported by Courthouse News Service."

Let's hope that the Dems hire plenty of catchers for the Denver convention. A mile high is a long way to fall, even for Obama.
