God's Homelessness Spares Him Lawsuit

Beyond the reach of a summons server, God dodged charges of causing "death, destruction and terrorization."

Lucky for God there was no room at the inn. Otherwise He might have been dragged into court and served a permanent injunction on further "death, destruction and terrorization."

Last year Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers filed a suit against the Lord accusing Him of inspiring fear among "millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

After careful consideration, Judge Marlon Polk dismissed the suit on Tuesday.

"Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice," wrote Polk.

Chambers quickly pointed out that Polk's finding contradicted itself.

"The court itself acknowledges the existence of God," Chambers, an independent,  said Wednesday. "A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience."

"Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit."

Chambers, who will be giving up his seat after 38 years, a victim of local term limits, said he brought the suit to show that that "anyone can sue anyone else, even God."
