It had to happen sooner or later.....

A court in Nebraska is being asked to cast judgement on the ultimate judge -- God.

State lawmaker Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit Friday against the Almighty -- acknowledging he/she goes by numerous aliases -- for causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues" and other alliterative catastrophes.

The suit, Chambers vs God, asks the court for a "permanent injunction ordering defendant (God) to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terrorist threats" which affect innumerable persons, including Chambers's constituents.

It asserts that God is "the admitted perpetrator" of such acts and said that God's omnipresence gives the local Douglas County District Court jurisdiction in the suit, adding that God's omniscience eliminates the need to issue a formal notice of the lawsuit.

Chambers told local media he filed the suit to make a point about frivolous lawsuits frequently seen in US courts, citing a recent one against a judge.

He asked the court to award him an unspecified summary judgment against God, or, in the alternative, issue a permanent injunction against God engaging in the damaging acts cited in the filing.

Neither God nor his/her spokespersons could be contacted for comment.

Got this info from here

I thought the "Neither God nor his/her spokespersons could be contacted for comment" bit was hilarious.......

Um...guys, his actions are satirical. Did you read the article?

"Chambers told local media he filed the suit to make a point about frivolous lawsuits frequently seen in US courts, citing a recent one against a judge."

Get it? He's doing something clever, with a valid point. Be happy that people like him are in government.


Creativity can always cover for a lack of knowledge.

Damn straight,
I can't speak for experience, but if the US is anything like Australia then it's getting more litigious every fucking second and we need ridiculous things like this to open peoples eyes.

apparently the Almighty has filed a countersuit using lawyers from Corpus Christi. the senator hasn't figured out that only the naughty kids get scared when Santa Claus thinks about retirement.
