    Senator sues God. Case Dismissed.

    I'm surprised there was no pre-trial to establish the existence of the defendant.

    Is it possible for the judge to charge the Senator for wasting money and time with this pathetic case?

    I wonder if God would use the Devil as his legal advocate? ;) ...Hire the best they say...

    Nothing like seeing how your hard earned dollars, after converted to tax, are spent.

    Agreed. This should have never gotten this far.

    Reached at his office, God said, "I'm glad this was resolved in the courts. I really didn't want to have to smite the guy."

    Agreed.

    I bet this is not an isolated case either. Just happened to get carried in the press.

    Note, I am not bashing Democrats with my comments. I am sure that this is merely an example of a typical bipartisan stunt.

    Wow... someone's really seeking the spotlight, aren't they?

    What a tool...

    There's nothing quite like a little righteous indignation to start your day.

    It's an amusing stunt, but I don't understand the point the man was trying to make. Was it political or existential?

    Now, don't laugh. I clearly remember once when God was called to testify at a trial. As I recall, he looked like George Burns.

    I know, and I'm really tired of hearing from God's press secretary. Doesn't Pat Robertson have a direct line?

    Heh..

    I know this guy, personally. State Sen. Ernie Chambers, from Omaha. He's been in office since before I was born. He's actually represented North Omaha for YEARS. Went to the church my mother goes to. He was a nice guy, but I don't know where the hell he got this one from!

    I read about this yesterday in Omaha's newspaper before accidentally spitting out my tea all over the paper! Good 'ol Ernie is getting a bit senile, I guess, because he is planning to appeal.

    Anyone ever notice that the guy looks like a darker, grey-haired version of the caveman from the GEICO commercials? :D

    At least in Seattle, homeless people are allowed to use a street corner as their residence to vote.

    Well, John Doe never votes. Jane Doe can't be found. Jose, Jesus, and Julio are afraid of being arrested for outstanding warrants or unpaid bills because of an "official letter."

    Joe Schmoe can't find his polling place; Joe Blow still still working on that "butterfly ballot" from 2000.

    Hillbilly Bob believes it's all a conspiracy by the gov'mint.

    And, John Q. Public appears to be in a coma.

    Very few of these suits go to trial. God might be willing to settle out of court.

    God might fail to appear and will have a warrant out for arrest.

    I think this will be put down as an intentional tort and make it into the tort casebook. While he's at it, he should also sue God for negligence.

    As for criminal law, that's tougher since any crime God pulls off has to be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, and that fact that many doubt God's existence, this case may not get off the ground. :)
