Nebraska senator sues God to stop terror threats

Ryan Singel of the Wired News blog Threat Level tells BoingBoing,

Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers filed suit against God Friday, asking a court to order the Almighty and his followers to stop making terrorist threats.

The suit (.pdf), filed in a Nebraska district court, contends that God, along with his followers of all persuasions, "has made and continues to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons." Those threats are credible given God's history, Chambers' complaint says.

Chambers, in a fit of alliteration, also accuses God of causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like."

Your post reminds me of the "Paranormal Restraining Orders" website. In addition to God, you can get a legal restraint from Bigfoot, Nessie, Death, and David Letterman. Disclosure: I made the site (almost a year ago)
