The Lawsuit

OK, I'll jump on the bandwagon. As frivolous lawsuits go, this one could be fun:
Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers filed suit against God Friday, asking a court to order the Almighty and his followers to stop making terrorist threats.

The suit (.pdf), filed in a Nebraska district court, contends that God, along with his followers of all persuasions, "has made and continues to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons." Those threats are credible given God's history,
Chambers' complaint says.

Chambers, in a fit of alliteration, also accuses God of causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like."


I doubt that God will show up, but if he/she does the questions could be quite a blast. And if God loses the suit, what should the damages be? And, how would anybody collect them?

If god loses the suit - he will have to forfeit all religions that worship him. Sorry too many killed in the name of one "his" religions.

Let's bring back a cool god like Thor.

God's the biggest trouble causer there has ever been. Loki was a piker by comparison.
