  • Judge Tosses Lawsuit By Nebraska Woman Suing 'All Homosexuals' On Behalf Of Jesus

    A federal judge has dismissed a Nebraska woman's lawsuit which she filed against all gay people, because, Jesus.

    A Christian Nebraska woman last week filed a lawsuit against the entire group of "homosexuals" in America, in her role as Ambassador for the plaintiffs, namely, "God, and His, Son, Jesus Christ."

    Sylvia Driskell, 66, filed her seven-page handwritten lawsuit in the "United State District Court of Omaha," asking the federal court to determine, "Is Homosexuality a sin, or not a sin."

    The lawsuit quotes Leviticus, "God tells his children in Leviticus Chapter 18 verse 22. Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is ambomination." And also Romans I, and "Jenesis." And it concludes with these time-honored questions:

    Why are judges passing laws, so sinners can break religious and moral laws?

    Will all the judges of this Nation, judge God to be a lier?

    For God has said; that all unrighteousness is sin, and that homosexuality is abomination

    Driskell will not have her day in court.

    Judge Judge John Gerrard, according to the Omaha World-Herald, has dismissed her case, without even a hearing.

    "The United States Federal Courts were created to resolve actual cases and controversies arising under the Constitution and the laws of the United States," Judge Gerrard wrote in his ruling. "A federal court is not a forum for debate or discourse on theological matters."

    Needless to say, the news of the lawsuit prompted hilarious responses on social media, like this from Clay Aiken:

      since this woman tried to sue the gays, can I sue the rapists, or the murderers??

      Richard La France,

      I do not deny that that the LBGT community has legitimate threats which need to be responded to. That being said, do you honestly believe this woman and her “suit” were a legitimate threat? Of course not, the suit was dead in the proverbial water the minute it was submitted. Therefore, you are crowing about a victory over someone who had neither the power nor the presence of mind to mount a legitimate threat. Doesn’t that strike you as just slightly petty?

      Your plaintiff also says "judge ye not lest ye be judged, silly fake Christian-girl.

      I’d like to file an amicus brief:

      Who gives a fuck, lady?

      Gee, David Cohen, we put up with this fanatical nonsense every single day and you’re saying this woman is mentally ill? The Fundamentalists are dead serious and they want us dead. I’ve been screaming at THEM to grow up. I’m 69 years old and still have to listen to their BS every day, plotting on how they want to kill us?

      I have absolutely no sympathy for any of them. Every day it’s a different character, sometimes Republican candidates or already elected Republicans. Keeping the church separated from the state has become a serious problem with these right wing haters. They want to create a Biblical Sharia law for this country and they’re getting more and more threatening with it every day. And we gay people won’t be the only ones to suffer. If you have a wife I’m sure you’d like to know what they’re going to put women through. Don’t tell us to grow up. This is the first good laugh we’ve had out of that group. They all think God talks directly to them. I tell them He only talks to serial killers.

      Whee, ridiculing mentally ill people is fun.

      Grow up people!

      The Judge should have requested the appropriate notarized paperwork signed by God appointing this woman as his ambassador.

      I would love to have been a fly on the wall for the behind-the-scenes activity on this one.

      Did Judge Gerrard hand it out as a contest to his clerks to see who could come back with the quickest reply? Or was it just juicy (and easy) enough that he whipped out the order in a matter of hours, with gotcha-errors for the clerks to root out and annotate?

      A friend of mine mentioned that, had this gone forward, we the defendants would have the right to face our accusers. That means that if God and his son had failed to appear in court, the case would have been dismissed.

      Please do not describe folks like this as “Christian” first – gives the rest of us a bad name. Perhaps – ultra conservative …, or some other appropriate adjective would be helpful. I have a few I would suggest, but as a Christian I try not to judge others or make fun of them no matter how much the urge may be to do so.

      I suppose she couldn’t provide documentation that she actually is the attorney for God and Jesus.
