Another Law Suit

Lady Justice

Okay, a lot of you might have already heard about this, but I still find it funny. A senator is trying to sue God.


This senator claims “God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha, inspired fear and caused ‘widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants.’" This suit was just thrown out because “the Almighty wasn't properly served, because of his unlisted home address.” Read the whole AP story here. I guarantee you it is worth your time.

I am a religious person, a Christian who believes in God and Jesus as the Messiah with all my heart. However, let’s look at this from an outside standpoint. By placing the law suit the senator is acknowledging God exists; he is acknowledging that God has power to do great and terrible things – that’s why he’s trying to take an injunction against Him.

Looking at those facts even if you don’t call yourself a Christian wouldn’t you be a little scared of the god that you were suing? You’re blaming him for haneous acts, terror, violence, death…and you want to put a lawsuit against him??? To me I think it would be like being a witness against the mob; they’ve done terrible stuff and you’re afraid of them so most people wouldn’t do it because they are afraid they’d end up on a hit list and be retaliated against.

So I guess what I am really saying is by not being afraid of punishment from this god that he’s pegged as so vengeful and terrible isn’t he kind of saying he doesn’t believe either in this god or that this god is a terrible enough god to strike back against him?
