Suing God

Nebraska Democratic State Senator Ernie Chambers is against legislation that would restrict the filing of frivolous lawsuits. So to make a dramatic point against such legislation, he sued God for killing and terrorizing people with natural disasters. Huh? Can anyone think of a more frivolous lawsuit? It makes me think about wanting to ban such lawsuits! How does wasting the court's time with such a frivolous lawsuit help his cause that lawsuits like his should be given the time of day? His lawsuit will of course be thrown out, but I am not sure if it will help his argument for allowing frivolous lawsuits. It is, however, unfortunate that he decided to attack God just to make a political argument. Why not sue Elvis or space aliens? If you are going to be stupid, please do not bring God into it.

  1. We must be reading the same stories. I wrote about the McCain story last night for posting this morning and then this story for 5 today. I guess great minds think alike! :)

  3. Thanks for the comments!

    Kevin: That's kind of scary; I'm not sure the world can handle the both of us!

    Jennifer: Good point. Although, it might be hard for God to find a lawyer up there to argue the case!

    You know what would be funny/nice? If God talked to someone and had them defend His case! >.>
    He may not.

  5. anonymous: You may be on to something as someone secretly dropped off legal documents that are said to be from God that explain why the lawsuit should be dismissed. That's pretty funny!
