WTF: Senator Sues G-d (God for you 'non-jewish' folken )

State Sen. Ernie Chambers sued God last week (reported yesterday by the AP via ABC).

Wait. There's an explanation!

and this is so disgusting, I've had to split it into TWO DIFFERENT Posts.

  1. This post about the Leglislator suing God
  2. The background about WHY the woman was suing the Judge.

-------------------About the God Lawsuit!----------------------

Angered by another lawsuit he considers frivolous, Chambers says he's trying to make the point that anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody.
Sen. Chambers says that,

"God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

...SNIP...He also says God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."

He's seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty.

The Omaha senator, who skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians, was trying to make the point that anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody.

Now for the meat of the story....

(see the explanation of that suit HERE)

Chambers said Bowen’s lawsuit is inappropriate because the Nebraska Supreme Court has already considered the case and federal courts follow the decisions of state supreme courts on state matters.

Give me a BREAK.
THEN THE LAW needs to be adjusted.


G-d RESPONDS to lawsuit!

Today, the AP/ABC reports that there have been TWO responses to Chambers' suit against GOD.
One of two court filings from "God" came Wednesday under otherworldly circumstances, according to John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha.

"This one miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here poof!" Friend said.

Chambers said he's trying to makes the point that anybody can sue anybody.
The response to the lawsuit disputes this and says:

Not so, says "God." His response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

It adds that blaming God for human oppression and suffering misses an important point.

"I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you," according to the response, as read by Friend.

There was no contact information on the filing, although St. Michael the Archangel is listed as a witness, Friend said.


The other response to Chambers' lawsuit disputing Chambers' allegations lists a phone number for a Corpus Christi law office. A message left for that office was not immediately returned Thursday.

Attempts to reach Senator Chambers by phone and at his Capitol office Thursday were unsuccessful.


To quote the (now) forty year old musical, "HAIR", "what a work of God is Man"
