But Is There Jurisdiction?

godsued.jpgNebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers has got a lot of goddamn nerve. God gives us Life. He gives us eyes to see the beautiful, ears to hear lovely music, and a nose to smell delicious aromas. Did he not send his only begotten son to suffer for our sins? And what does Ernie Chambers do in exchange?

He sues the Almighty.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers sued God last week … Chambers says in his lawsuit 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.”
The Omaha senator, who skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians, also says God has caused “fearsome floods … horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes.”
He’s seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty.

To be fair, the senator was only trying to make a point, but really: Aren’t there better ways to make a point than suing the Creator? Like passing a law? Or making a speech? What the hell did they his constituents put him in office for? Surely not to bring suit against our Maker.

ewwww you people stink of religion. Gross!

Right, but what point is he trying to make? Oh yeah, that a woman is misusing the legal system because she's suing the judge who banned her from using the words "rape" or "victim" during the trial of the man who allegedly assaulted her. He's mocking her because she has a first amendment action against an officer of the court.

I am from Nebraska and let me tell you, we have been dealing with Ernie Chambers antics for the past three decades. What's funny as that myself, three other attorneys, and a Judge laughed our asses off that a)he would file such a case and b) that the court would actually allow him to file such a case. What's worse is that there is an actual case where an individual did the same with regard to suing Satan and it was one of the funniest things I ever read. So sad that this ridiculous lawsuit came out of Omaha, NE. You should read the actual complaint. It is HI(gh)larious.

As a new Nebraskan, I am already sick and tired of Ernie Chambers. This is only another antic of his to get attention. Of course, it's negative attention that makes Omaha and Nebraska look foolish, but just like those-who-shall-not-be-named, he will remain on people's minds. I did not vote for this man, and will not vote for him, but I am ashamed none the less.
