God Only Knows by the Beach Boys

A US court has rejected a case brought against God by an American politician. Ernie Chambers, the longest-serving senator in the state of Nebraska, tried to use the courts to stop God from harming people. Mr. Chambers, 71, filed a lawsuit that ordered God to stop causing "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants". He listed examples of the terrible things God allows to happen on Earth, including "fearsome floods, horrendous hurricanes, earthquakes, plagues, famine, genocidal wars, birth defects, terrifying tornadoes and the like". Chambers said the “defendant”, God, has not apologized for any of the troubles brought to Earth, saying the Almighty has shown “neither compassion nor remorse”.

The court judge threw Mr. Chambers’ case out on a technicality. Nebraska state law requires all defendants in court cases to have an address. This is so state officials can deliver papers requesting the defendant attends court. Mr. Chambers disputed this. He said the court acknowledged the existence of God and because of this, it knew God was everywhere so there was no need for a street address. He added that: "Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit." Mr. Chambers’ real reason for his actions is not because he has any grudge against God. He said he simply wants to show that law courts are open and available to anyone. He said: "Anyone can sue anyone they choose, even God." The senator has 30 days to decide whether to appeal against the ruling.

So if he wins, how will he collect his settlement from God? And if God doesn't pay up, does He go to jail? If God's in jail, how can he be everywhere? If God's not everywhere, is He really God? As Linus Van Pelt once said, "The theological implications alone are staggering."
