God Lawsuit

It takes some guts to sue God. Or maybe that’s stupidity. I found this news article to be somewhat humorous. I hope God does too.

You can read the story at… http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/09/20/suing.god.ap/index.html

State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha filed a lawsuit against God last week to make a point about frivolous lawsuits. He wanted to show that anybody can sue anyone for any reason in this country. Chambers makes a great point. Most of Congress is made up of lawyers. They have written laws in such a way to favor lawyers. Unfortunately, many bad decisions are made in this country because someone fears a lawsuit.

While lawsuits can be beneficial to ensure that people or companies pay for their “sins”, they can also be a vehicle to steal for others. Now that God has been sued, maybe He’ll do something about the current U.S. judicial system.

Then again… that would be viewed as a breach of the separation between Church and State by many lawyers. I guess we’ll have to deal with it ourselves for the time being.
