Did anybody bother to read this paragraph?
Does anyone know about this story?
Fox News was all over that judge a while back.
Why not make it a class action lawsuit? Let's all get in on the action.
Thanks martian, I got it.
Honestly, I like the idea of suing that sadistic prick God. But to use it to make a point against the above story? That's actually something that concerns me.
Lightning for everyone!
Lightning for some, miniature American flags for others!
Well then, Lightning only for those who excessively love fried chicken and watermelon.
and places like Big Momma's Grubb House on 6th street in Philly
Johnnie Cochran died of cancer.
God needed a lawyer.
The individual who wrote this article is a moron and shouldn't claim to be a journalist.
I'm doubting the authenticity of this simply based on the punctuation. Any trained journalist knows how to correctly quote and structure their article and this example is a pile of dog shit.
You may want to check AP to see if it has made the wires because this may be some shit from The Onion or a blog. Or it could have just been written by an idiot.
[UPDATE] Ok so the story is real and I found it from AP where it's written correctly by someone that's competent.
Also, the photog was very good with her shot placement by putting a fan behind the man's head to look like a halo similar to those found in old religious paintings
I use to work for the local paper, AP stories had errors in it all the time. There wasn't a day that went by without someone having to correct them. Just saying, they are not always right.
Oh yeah I have seen plenty of AP errors, but I don't think I've seen that many instances like what was in that original story from the local paper.
Great, Another John Denver movie.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — God has apparently responded to a lawsuit filed by a Nebraska lawmaker, and one of the filings seems to have dropped in from the heavens. "This one miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here — poof!" said John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha.
The response was one of at least two to a lawsuit filed against God last week by state Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha, the state's longest-serving lawmaker.
Signed by "God," the response filed Wednesday argues the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction over God.
Blaming the Almighty for human oppression and suffering misses an important point, it says.
"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, as read by Friend.
St. Michael the Archangel is listed as a witness, Friend said.
Another response — also signed God — says the Lord disputes Chambers' allegations.
That filing lists a phone number for a Corpus Christi law office. A message left for that office was not immediately returned Thursday.
Chambers could not be reached Thursday to comment on the response. He said in his five-page lawsuit that God has made terroristic threats against him and his constituents, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."
He's seeking a permanent injunction against God.
The self-proclaimed agnostic who often criticizes Christians said his filing was triggered by a federal lawsuit against a judge, filed by a woman who was barred from saying "****," "victim" and other words in court.
Chambers said the woman's lawsuit is inappropriate because the Nebraska Supreme Court has already considered the case and federal courts follow the decisions of state supreme courts on state matters.
Chambers said his lawsuit is serious but also makes a point: Anybody can sue anybody
Apparently God doesn't take too kindly to being sued.
I actually saw that movie, or at least a part of it. It was really stupid...just like this real lawsuit.
