God responds to senator’s lawsuit


I heard on NPR this morning that God had filed a response in Nebraska court to that ridiculous lawsuit against Him for “widespread death, destruction and terrorization.”

“This one miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here - poof!” said John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha.

Here’s the rest of the legal briefing from the Associated Press:

Signed by “God,” the response filed Wednesday argues the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction over God.

Blaming the Almighty for human oppression and suffering misses an important point, it says.

“I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you,” according to the response.

The Archangel Michael is listed as a witness. No, this blog, nor the AP, has not been hijacked by The Onion. Heaven help us.
