God evidently has attorneys here on earth

Earlier this week, Ernest W. Chambers, a state senator in Nebraska, sued God. That's right, he sued God.

From Nate Jenkins at the Associated Press:
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.
I guess Mr. Chambers didn't expect God to make filings in response to his suit.

God's 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."
Wow; God's something of an existentialist. And, he has attorneys here on earth to handle is legal affairs.

h/t to The Puddle Pirate at Brainshavings. Mr. Puddle posted Mr.
Chambers' original filing here
. I don't yet see God's reply on the Internet, but I'm sure it's here since she is omnipresent.

  1. I always thought that the other guy had all of the attorneys on retainer.

    Seriously, I'd like to hire the firm that obtained service on the Almighty.
