Suing God?

Nebraska Democratic State Senator Ernie Chambers has decided to go straight to the top in an effort to stop natural disasters from befalling the world.


Chambers says he isn't suing God because he has any kind of beef with the deity. He says the suit is to fight possible laws restricting the filing of frivolous lawsuits. Chambers tells KPTM FOX 42 News that his lawsuit is in response to bills brought forth by other state senators to try and stop lawsuits from being filed.

"The Constitution requires that the courthouse doors be open, so you cannot prohibit the filing of suits," Chambers says. "Anyone can sue anyone they choose, even God."

Really? Wasn't it Job, who perhaps might even have a case for suing God who said, "The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the Lord"?

  1. Good luck with that Senator Chambers! I don't know about the rest of you, but 1) I'm glad he's not our senator! 2) I'm on God's side!
