State Senator Sues God

State Senator Ernie Chambers Sues God
Chambers says its to prove a point about frivolous lawsuits.

September 17, 2007

OMAHA, Neb -- State Senator Ernie Chambers is suing God. He says it to prove a point about frivolous lawsuits.

Chambers says senators periodically have offered bills prohibiting the filing of certain types of suits. He says his main objection is the constitution requires that the doors to the courthouse be open to all. Chambers said, "Thus anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody - even God."

Chambers said he decided to file this lawsuit after a suit was filed in early September in federal court against Lancaster County Judge Jeffre Cheuvront. He's the judge who was hearing a sexual assault case, where the woman wants to use the words "rape and victim" during her testimony.

Chambers lawsuit, which was filed on Friday in Douglas County Court, seeks a permanent injunction ordering God to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats.

The lawsuit admits God goes by all sorts of alias, names, titles and designations and it also recognizes the fact that the defendant is “Omnipresent”.

In the lawsuit Chambers says he's tried to contact God numerous times, “Plaintiff, despite reasonable efforts to effectuate personal service upon Defendant (“Come out, come out, wherever you are”) has been unable to do so.”

The suit also requests that the court given the “peculiar circumstances” of this case waive personal service. It says being Omniscient, the plaintiff assumes God will have actual knowledge of the action.

The lawsuit accuses God “of making and continuing to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons, including constituents of Plaintiff who Plaintiff has the duty to represent.”

It says God has caused, “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like.”

The suit also says God has caused, “calamitous catastrophes resulting in the wide-spread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants including innocent babes, infants, children, the aged and infirm without mercy or distinction.”

Chambers also says God “has manifested neither compassion nor remorse, proclaiming that Defendant “will laugh” when calamity comes.

Chambers asks for the court to grant him a summary judgment. He says as an alternative, he wants the judge to set a date for a hearing as “expeditiously” as possible and enter a permanent injunction enjoining God from engaging in the types of deleterious actions and the making of terroristic threats described in the lawsuit.

Well, for my part, I don't think God is guilty of unleashing "genocidal wars" and "birth defects". But I would find him "Guilty" as charged, on accounts of :

calamitous catastrophes

devastating droughts

egregious earthquakes

ferocious famines

fearsome floods

horrendous hurricanes

pestilential plagues

terrifying tornadoes (and typhoons)

while making

terroristic threats, all along.

But since God “has manifested neither compassion nor remorse", and “will laugh” when the verdict comes, what are we to do?

One strategy might be to Thank Him for the calamitous catastrophes, devastating droughts, egregious earthquakes, ferocious famines, fearsome floods, horrendous hurricanes, pestilential plagues, terrifying tornadoes (and typhoons), and in fact assure Him that we understand that WE are responsible for all of the above because of our Sins, so He can rest with a good conscience. As for the terroristic threats, we'll refer them to the Department of Homeland Security. They have the ability to re-assign them to people of a different faith.

Case dismissed!

We can not blame GOD! For, He does not exist. We made God...

By WE, I meant the Conquerors. We've been psychologically used and abused by the Occupiers.

Another perspective: though I don't agree entirely; I understand.

God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell--mouths mercy, and invented hell--mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!

Amen, Dunord!

Guy, we can only speculate on who made us. But, for sure I can tell you the God's stories do not hold any water...

Let's take the big book for instance. God created the Earth and rested the seven Day???

He made Adam and Eve with Adam's ribs???

The Apple's stories??? He is obviously in love with his Apples!!!

Noah's Ark, how did this Guy get all the different Species in ONE Boat???

Then, we have the Famous Virgin Mary and her Son Jesus???

This is true mythology taken from the Egyptians.

So many Stories from the Crusaders who became the Occupiers and Slave Owners.

But, Thanks to Science we can not find one single proof of the existence of the BS learned from the bible which is about two thousand years. This is too far for Archeologists to verify while they can only go as back as couple of million years... Where is the Arch?

We were brainwashed by the Judeo-Christianism which portrayed the Jews as the "CHOSEN ONES"... Enfin, enfin, Reason and Logic cease to exist in terms of GOD.

Well, I can not take stories from Rich Europeans who enslaved Billions to make Billions. Car le Royaume des Cieux sera aux Plus Pauvres...

We live to Die. There is no Soul as taught. Otherwise where would the Chickens, Cows and other animals Soul go to? Paradise to feed us once more!

Sorry Guys, G O D= GULLIBLE OPPRESSED DELIRIUM. WE ARE GULLIBLE AND OPPRESSED IN A DELIRIUM STATE...

Leonel,
You scare me like hell, man! I am not prone to challenge your opinion but hey! I believe that there is a master of the universe.. Call him/her God, Allah you name it.. It does exist in my mind. Are we the only living creatures in the universe? This question is open for debate. it's a challenging one that scientists have been trying to get answers for years. Think again brother! Granmèt lan pa jwe non:) m'ap kite-w ak ti blag sa, ok.

Un athée se promenait dans les bois tout en s'extasiant devant la nature: « Quels arbres majestueux, quelle puissante rivière, quels beaux animaux! » se disait-il. Comme il marchait le long de la rivière, il entendit un sourd grognement provenant d'un buisson à proximité. Il jeta un oeil dans cette direction et vit un énorme grizzly de plus de 2 m de haut qui s'apprêtait à le charger. Il courut aussi vite qu'il le pouvait dans un petit sentier, regarda par-dessus son épaule et réalisa que l'ours le talonnait. Il trébucha et tomba sur le sol. Il roula sur lui-même et comme il tentait de se relever, il vit l'ours au-dessus de lui, la patte droite prête à le frapper ! À cet instant, l'athée s'écria: « Oh, mon Dieu! » Le temps s'arrêta, l'ours se figea et la forêt devint silencieuse. Une lumière vive apparut près de l'homme et une voix vint du ciel : « Tu as nié mon existence durant toutes ces années et attribué la Création à un accident cosmique. Dois-je t'aider à te sortir de cette situation? Crois-tu que je puisse te considérer comme un croyant? » L'athée regarda vers lalumière et répondit humblement : « Je crois qu'il serait hypocrite de ma part de vous demander de me considérer comme un bon catholique, mais peut-être pourriez-vous rendre l'ours ... Catholique? » « Très bien », dit la voix.

La lumière s'éteignit, la forêt reprit son chant, l'ours descendit sa patte, se pencha la tête et tout benoîtement joignit ses deux pattes en murmurant : «Seigneur, bénissez ce repas.»

'God' Apparently Responds to Lawsuit
By NATE JENKINS, Associated Press Writer
Thu Sep 20, 11:18 PM


This file photo from April 12, 2006, shows Sen. ...
LINCOLN, Neb. - A legislator who filed a lawsuit against God has gotten something he might not have expected: a response. One of two court filings from "God" came Wednesday under otherworldly circumstances, according to John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha.

"This one miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here _ poof!" Friend said.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued God last week, seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty for making terroristic threats, inspiring fear and causing "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

Chambers, a self-proclaimed agnostic who often criticizes Christians, said his filing was triggered by a federal lawsuit he considers frivolous. He said he's trying to makes the point that anybody can sue anybody.

Not so, says "God." His response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

It adds that blaming God for human oppression and suffering misses an important point.

"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, as read by Friend.

There was no contact information on the filing, although St. Michael the Archangel is listed as a witness, Friend said.

A second response from "God" disputing Chambers' allegations lists a phone number for a Corpus Christi law office. A message left for that office was not immediately returned Thursday.

Attempts to reach Chambers by phone and at his Capitol office Thursday were unsuccessful.

[quote]...Apres la Mort, c'est le Neant.

Leonel[/quote]
For sure my good friend leo DOES NOT KNOW THAT, but he claims to believe it. That's ok, too; the only problem I see is that leo has just one and only one way to find out: he has to be wrong, he has to lose the game.

Let's say that one day leo's heart stops beating and he takes his last breath. If he is right in his faith (Apres la Mort, c'est le Neant) there is no way for him to know because with his death he is no more. No thought process, no conscience, no awareness. Nothing! Nada! No more leo, just a cold body on the autopsy table. Left to itself for a long time, leo will become a free buffet for a whole range of maggots, worms, flies, and bacteria. As the building blocks of his body start to disentegrate, the sulfure-containing proteins will release a strong smell, unbearable to other humans but a great delight for the flies. Slowly but surely everything that was part of leo will be recycled. And that's the end of it.

But what if leo was wrong?

What if after his last breath leo suddenly wakes up to realize he has no physical body but still knows he is leo (leo the brave)?. What if leo feels he would like to apologize to all the people he has mistreated in some way during his life - only to understand that's no longer possible? What if an intense regret and a strong sense of remorse burst inside of him, lighting something like a hot fire, an ever increasing fire and thirst that cannot be quenched? What if leo finally understands that he is dead but "Apres la Mort, ce n'est pas le Neant"?

leo claims that " Apres la Mort, c'est le Neant ", but he can never be right and enjoy the prize of his game. It's a tough bet, leo. You will have to lose the game to know the answer. Is that your final answer?

Legal case against God dismissed

Post by Guysanto » Thu Oct 16, 2008 11:04 am

Legal case against God dismissed

A US judge has thrown out a case against God, ruling that because the defendant has no address, legal papers cannot be served.

The suit was launched by Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers, who said he might appeal against the ruling.

He sought a permanent injunction to prevent the "death, destruction and terrorisation" caused by God.

Judge Marlon Polk said in his ruling that a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a case to proceed.

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

Mr Chambers cannot refile the suit but may appeal.

'God knows everything'

Mr Chambers sued God last year. He said God had threatened him and the people of Nebraska and had inflicted "widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

He said he would carefully consider Judge Polk's ruling before deciding whether to appeal.

The court, Mr Chambers said, had acknowledged the existence of God and "a consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God's omniscience".

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

Mr Chambers, a state senator for 38 years, said he filed the suit to make the point that "anyone can sue anyone else, even God".

Nope, not really tonton! I was pulling Leo's legs by trying to point out he has no way of knowing that "après la mort c'est le néant". And we can't know. It's fine by me if one believes it - but it's just a belief as I am sure you understand...

Why try to sue God anyway...? He won't show up in court!

He should! The trial would last a long time, given that he has a long list of charges to answer to, but one thing that God has aplenty and that we only have in limited quantities is Time. In addition, I would be glad to represent Him in court at no charge, only in "futures".

Other advantages: It's hard to pin God down. He is as slippery as they come. He appears like Earth, Wind, or Fire. He can speak in all tongues ever devised by Man, and yet can make anyone speak in "tongues" unintelligible to anyone else.

If he's called to testify on his own behalf, he will swear on a book people swear he has written himself.

Finally, the word on the street is that God's chief prosecutor, Leonel Jean-Baptiste, has been seen in department stores, supermarkets and various other places, using currency imprinted with the words "In God We Trust". What amount of confidence does that inspire for the case against God, when he has the prosecutor in his pocket and vice versa?

If I were God, I'd show up! (That would even be far more interesting than any of the Obama-McCain debates, don't you think?)

Well, no need to worry. The will be a chance to meet God in court, but it will be HIS court, on HIS terms and at a time of HIS choice:

[quote]Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. <u>The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books</u>. - Rev 20:11-12

or

For we must all appear before <u>the judgment seat of Christ</u>, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. - 2 Cor 5:10 [/quote]

But that will take place IN THE FUTURE since God has sooooooo much time on his side as Guy put it.

Leo, we went through this one before about the fear of death. It's not true that all believers fear dying....:-)
