    Legal case against God dismissed

    Legal case against God dismissed


    The plaintiff argued an omniscient God would know of the lawsuit

    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".

    Why hasn't God sued Allah for stealing his fame? Or Krishna sued Budha? Or that stupid spaghetti thing sued Richard Dawkins?

    Complete waste of everyones time and resources. In order to sue God, it must first be proven that he/she exists in a tangable form. This form can then be identified as the defendant. As God is notorious for appearing in different forms, it is unlikely that identification, of the defendant, will prove possible or usefull.

    More to the point, as God is aware of everything, she/he could easily point to a little known legal loophole.

    IMHO Mr. Chambers should be removed and sent to a, distant, monastary to prepare his case.

    The thing that suprises me is that some Ameericaan nutter hasn't come out of the wood work and claimed to be God.

    That's how I know there is no Santa Claus. If he really did exist, there would be hundreds of mentally ill women in America alone, with that manic drug induced slur in their voice, accusing him of rape after he came down their chimney. He would also generate several thousand product liability lawsuits each year.

    Of course, thinking of the weapons of mass destruction story from Ameericaa we should also start to rethink about the moon landings, another made up story perhaps?

    maybe he should look up butterfly for some tips - after a few leprous ladyboys , he is bound to have a few spare.

    Why not limit your insults and generalizations to this individual or the legal abuses he is representative of and leave the 300 million others who have nothing to do with it out of it.

    Novel Faiths Find Followers Among Russia's Disillusioned

    Followers of Sergei Torop, who believe he is Jesus Christ, participate in morning prayers in their Siberian village. (By Kevin Sullivan -- The Washington Post)

    By Kevin Sullivan
    Washington Post Foreign Service
    Tuesday, July 17, 2007; Page A01
    ABODE OF DAWN, Russia -- Six miles from the nearest road, in the vast Siberian wilderness, a bearded man in flowing white linen robes sat at his kitchen table and talked about his crucifixion at the hands of Pontius Pilate 2,000 years ago.

    In a voice barely louder than the rain falling on the mountaintop home his followers have built for him, Sergei Torop said it was painful to remember the end of his last life, in which he says he walked the Earth as Jesus Christ.

    Torop, 46, is a former Siberian traffic cop who is now spiritual leader of at least 5,000 devoted followers. They have abandoned lives as artists, engineers and professionals in other fields to move to this remote corner of Siberia, 2,000 miles from Moscow. In empty woodlands, they are building from scratch an entire new town, where they pass their lives near the man they call Vissarion, "he who gives new life."

    Russian government officials and religion analysts call his Church of the Last Testament one of the largest new religious groups in Russia, which has become an incubator of novel faiths since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.

    Thousands of new religious groups have formed all over the world in recent years as increasing numbers of people become disillusioned with traditional religions, according to experts who study worship trends. In Russia, millions of people returned to the Orthodox Church after seven decades of state suppression of religion, but hundreds of thousands of others sought new faiths for new times.

    Custom-made religions spring up nearly weekly across the world, some attracting a handful of adherents and others many thousands. And whatever their god, gospel or guru, like-minded searchers are finding one another faster and easier than ever through the connecting powers of the Internet.



    "It is a massive phenomenon," said Christopher H. Partridge, author of the Encyclopedia of New Religions. The theology of the new groups ranges from esoteric revisionist interpretations of Christianity, Hinduism or Buddhism to belief that God will arrive on a UFO.

    "A misconception is that these people are all the mad and the gullible and the stupid," Partridge said. "Often they are very well-educated. It's usually people who had thought a great deal about themselves, their place in the world and their life in the world to come. They are looking for something."

    Periodically, Torop comes down from his mountaintop home to meet his followers, who bow down and worship him. On Sundays, he receives them at his house. Torop is well-traveled, too -- he has preached in Moscow, Western Europe and the United States.

    Critics variously dismiss him as a delusional or perhaps dangerous cult leader. But people who have flocked here declare themselves certain of his divinity. "When I saw Vissarion, my heart said, 'This is him. This is the one, the teacher I have been waiting for all my life,' " said Luba Derbina, 44, a former Red Cross translator from the Russian port city of Murmansk. "Yes, I believe he is Jesus Christ. I know it, like I know I'm breathing, and that's it." . view-source:Novel Faiths Find Followers Among Russia's Disillusioned - washingtonpost.com .

    There would be some very crowded churches this Sunday if an unexplained bolt of lightning had struck him dead just outside the courthouse.

    Or even realise that this Senator is not representative of any legal abuse and brought this case purely to point out how ridiculous it is to be able to sue anybody for any reason whatsoever? Looks like the Senator failed to take into account just how dumb many people are, I wonder if the fact that so many took his case as a serious action against God came as a surprise to him.

    I think Noodles should actually extend his insults and generalisations to include all the thickos who thought that this was a serious action against the evil sky father

    IF you retards learned how to read and had been taught by your headmasters to do a little research instead of mastering head, then you'd know that this story stems from a much more important issue than just some lunatic actually thinking he'll achieve something directly through litigation against God.

    State Sen. Ernie Chambers Sues God

    Chambers Aims To Make Point About Frivolous Lawsuits

    POSTED: 1:52 pm CDT September 17, 2007
    UPDATED: 12:04 pm CDT September 19, 2007
    OMAHA, Neb -- State Sen. Ernie Chambers is suing God. He said on Monday that it is to prove a point about frivolous lawsuits.Chambers said senators periodically have offered bills prohibiting the filing of certain types of suits. He said his main objection is that the constitution requires that the doors to the courthouse be open to all."Thus anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody -- even God," Chambers said.Chambers said he decided to file the 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 in which the plaintiff 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 said 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,'" Chambers said.The suit also requests that the court, given the peculiar circumstances of this case, waive personal service. It said that 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 said 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.
