Pentecostalism May be Dangerous to Your Health

A Tennessee man went to his "non-denominational" church, which is the kind where they assign people to stand near the altar and catch worshippers who may fall over when the Holy Ghost cometh upon them.  

Here's how it goes:  Preacher taps man on head; man falls; no catchers are present.  Man smacks his head on the floor, and sues the church for $2.5 million, which is real money, even in today's devalued dollars.  Oh, and the insurance company rejected the church's claim, on the grounds that they are freaking idiots, who should have made sure their catchers were on the ball.

We propose that the church in question file suit against the Holy Ghost, for malicious mischief.
