Idiot Knocked Down by a Spirit

A Tennessee man sued his church for $2.5 million, claiming someone should have been there to catch him when he collapsed in religious ecstasy.

Matthew Lincoln, 58, says that after his minister, Robert Lavala of Lakewind Church, annointed his forehead, Lincoln "received the spirit and fell backward," hitting his head on the "carpet-covered cement floor."

The fall allegedly exacerbated a pre-existing spinal condition.
