    The nexttime you feel like suing God...

    ...you might want to make sure he's not going to defend himself.

    LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) -- A legislator who filed a lawsuit against God has gotten something he might not have expected: a response.

    State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha said he sued God last week to make a point about frivolous lawsuits.

    One of two court filings from "God" came Wednesday under otherworldly circumstances, according to John Friend, clerk of the Douglas County District Court in Omaha.

    "This one miraculously appeared on the counter. It just all of a sudden was here -- poof!" Friend said.

    State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued God last week, seeking a permanent injunction against the Almighty for making terroristic threats, inspiring fear and causing "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

    Chambers, a self-proclaimed agnostic who often criticizes Christians, said his filing was triggered by a federal lawsuit he considers frivolous. He said he's trying to make the point that anybody can sue anybody.

    Not so, says "God." His 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.

    A second response from "God" disputing Chambers' allegations lists a phone number for a Corpus Christi law office. A message left for that office was not immediately returned Thursday.

    Attempts to reach Chambers by phone and at his Capitol office Thursday were unsuccessful.

    Ernie is one goofy, goofy dude. I grew up in Atlantic watching Omaha news, and he has always been way out there in left field. Even before I had formulated my own political interest or views, I could tell that I didn't share his.

    Is he really suing God because the Huskers blow?

    He's beyond goofy, he's a certified nut case.
