I just don't get this. I've read several accounts of it but still don't understand. Did you hear that a Nebraska senator has filed a lawsuit against God. yep, you read right - GOD! I suggest that you follow both links to read both stories in their entirety.
Fox News reports, "The suit asks for a 'permanent injunction ordering Defendant to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats.'" The article goes on to say, "Chambers says he isn't suing God because he has any kind of beef with the deity. He says the suit is to fight possible laws restricting the filing of frivolous lawsuits."
He's trying to prove a point that anyone should be able to file lawsuits against anyone - even God. Well, I don't think anyone CAN file a lawsuit against God. It just doesn't make sense to me. What's funny though is that, apparently, God has responded to the lawsuit against Him. The response was left miraculously on a counter at the County District Court in Omaha. Obviously, God didn't really send it, but whoever did, has God's best interest at heart.
It stated, as reported by Yahoo News, "Blaming the Almighty 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." Another response said the Lord disputes Chambers' allegations. Both responses were signed by, "God."
I'm just wondering how far this will all go. It's all pretty silly if you ask me.
