Suing God

We have an early leader for the zero half of our daily Heroes and Zeros feature.

A man in Knoxville, Tenn. is suing his church because he claims he was so consumed by the Holy Spirit, he fell and hit his head while worshipping.

I would absoltely hate to be this guy’s lawyer.

Matt Lincoln wants Lakewind Church to pay $2.5 million for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering. Which brings the question: If he was so consumed with the Holy Spirit, why was he feeling any pain? Ok, he had a couple surguries after the spill, so I guess he was legitimately hurt. His problem is he says he’d been bowled over by the experience before and someone always caught him. D’oh.

I think this guy is suing the wrong entity. He needs to sue God, or at least the Holy Spirit. I’d like to see him find a lawyer for that one.
