God Sued; Files Response

godsued.jpgEarlier this week, we told you about a lawsuit that Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers filed against The Almighty, claiming — among other things — 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.”

Well, God is apparently a fan of litigation. Not one to let a complaint go unanswered (though, the bastard refuses to answer any of my prayers concerning my fantasy football team — thanks, big guy!) God has filed a response, specifically arguing the court’s lack of jurisdiction, after Ernie complained that “anyone can sue anyone.”

His 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,” according to the response.

Now, seriously Creator-man — you think we can get a 4 TD game out of Drew Brees this weekend? Maybe send the 0-2 Eagles some love for Seth, too? Be a pal, God dude.

(Amen, brother. Amen. — Seth)

Hi,

Thanks for posting news and commentary about our film in the past. "A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar..." just became available on DVD exclusively on Amazon.com this past Friday. Also, we will were reviewed on Ebert and Roeper this weekend and was their Video Pick of the Week. We've won some new awards over the summer as well like The Toofy Film Fest's *GOLDEN TOOF AWARD- BEST NARRATIVE FEATURE*.

Again, thanks for all the kudos -- we read your blog a bunch -- and if you didn't mention us before, thanks for considering it now!
