What is the Legal World Coming To?

You can't make this stuff up, really: Nebraska Senator Sues God.
LINCOLN, Neb. - The defendant in a state senator's lawsuit is accused of causing untold death and horror and threatening to cause more still. He can be sued in Douglas County, the legislator claims, because He's everywhere.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers sued God last week. Angered by another lawsuit he considers frivolous, Chambers says he's trying to make the point that anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody.

I must go on record to say that this is not the God that I know. God doesn't cause untold death and horror. The God that I know is a God of love...

Absurdity of the lawsuit aside, they're naming the wrong defendant, if you ask me!

God of Love, huh.. you must be a follower of Aphrodite then. The god that Mr. I want to sue everybody and everything was talking about was the Hades, the god of war!!! Damn him and his death threats!

Ha, when did you become Jill Majors?
