Oh, Ernie

*Blink*

Isn't that hilarious? You know he's doing it to get people all riled up, and it's totally working. Plus, he says he's agnostic. How can you sue someone that you're not sure exists? Pretty funny. I can't believe people are taking it seriously.

It's typical Ernie, is what it is. Just trying to ruffle some feather to make his point. What I love is that it didn't do any good.

The courts responded to this lawsuit by saying this:

"His [God's] response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

It adds that blaming God for human oppression and suffering misses an important point.

"I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you," according to the response, as read by Friend.

There was no contact information on the filing, although St. Michael the Archangel is listed as a witness, Friend said."


That? Is completely awesome.

I understand the point he was trying to make, but he failed miserably. I LOVE the moxie of the person who prepared that response. I really, really love it. They pretty much sealed the deal is just how dumb Ernie made himself look.
