This Agnostic Says God May Or May Not Be Available For Comment

Nebraskans, your tax dollars at work:
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.

Chambers says in his lawsuit that God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

The Omaha senator, who skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians, also says God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."

He's seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty.
Good luck with that. While I wholeheartedly support his stand against frivolous lawsuits, I can't help but wonder if this gesture, paid for with the involuntarily-surrendered income of a mostly God-fearing state, won't somehow... you know, backfire.

Furthermore, why on Earth would anyone try to sue God? There's a reason he made the Jews his chosen people: Unlimited access to some of the world's best legal resources. Thank you and good night!
