Amazing Expressions of Religious Tolerance, Part 2355

Sometimes it's nice to see that other states have crazy people too.

Neb. state senator sues God in protest

LINCOLN, Neb. --Fed up with the threats, tired of natural disasters, the state's longest-serving state senator is using his legal muscle against who he says is the culprit -- God. State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued the Almighty in Douglas County District Court last week.

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."

Chambers also says God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."

He's seeking a permanent injunction against God

I'm not an attorney, but I'm note sure it's prudent to sue anyone credited with being able to strike you down with a bolt of lightning.

Getting around that Creator Immunity defense is going to be a bitch. Might be a personal jurisdiction problem too, because I'm pretty sure Nebraska is completely God-forsaken.
