Man sues God, gets response

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off the ol’ Lone Ranger, and you don’t mess around with … God?

A legislator who filed a lawsuit against God has gotten something he might not have expected: a response.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued God last week, seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty for making terroristic threats, inspiring fear and causing “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.”
Chambers, a self-proclaimed agnostic who often criticizes Christians, said his filing was triggered by a federal lawsuit he considers frivolous. He said he’s trying to makes the point that anybody can sue anybody.
Not so, says “God.” His response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

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

    As an atheist, I don’t appreciate those of my fellow unbelievers who can’t resist indulging in pointless provocations against the believing majority. This purported litigant may be a senator, but he’s not representative. By the way, since Sen. Chambers is an agnostic, shouldn’t his preposterous suit, instead of being filed against “God”, have named “to Whom it may concern”?
