The insurer said it was an act of God

A Sydney woman has lost her claim for compensation from her church after God touched her soul and caused her to bang her head.

She sued for AUS$750 000 (about R4-million) claiming someone should have been there to catch her when the Holy Spirit lifted her off her feet at a prayer meeting six years ago.

The judge ruled that she swooned too early and the catchers couldn't have been expected to get to her. The woman who sued God's house - and lost - IOL, October 18th 2002.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
