Only in America …

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

… could someone not only consider suing god but actually manage to get a judge to hear the case.

Senator Ernie Chambers of Nebraska brought a law suit against god to get a permanent injunction to prevent “death, destruction and terrorisation” caused by him.

He says he has done it to expose the ridiculous legal system in America that lets you sue anyone for anything and may appeal against the judge’s decision to thrown out the case because god has no address so papers can’t be served on him.  Senator Chambers says that the judge has acknowledged the existence of god which means they accept that he’s omnipotent and therefore knows about the law suit.

And this is supposed to be the most powerful country in the world?

    Is this a movie with Billy connolly too?

    I think it is a good thing, it keeps some lawyers away from real people and it is less troublesome than culling them

    I too remember the Connolly film, called The Man who Sued God.

    It exposed the sham of insurance, who used ‘an act of god’ as a reason not to pay out, against the various religious leaders who claimed to be ‘God’s representatives on Earth’ (to whom the papers were served).

    A really good film, one which I would recommend anyone to watch, but especially this lawyer before his appeal.
