Nebraska Senator Sues God

Many politicians play up their religion, but not Ernie Chambers. He's a Nebraska state senator. He does not participate in the chamber's morning prayers. And now he's filed a lawsuit against God. Sen. Chambers learned of a lawsuit he considered frivolous. So he's suing God to make the point that anybody can sue anybody. Chambers says God can be sued in Nebraska, since He's everywhere. And he accuses God of causing death and horror, and of threatening more.
