What if God was one of us? September 19, 2007

Y’all know that Joan Osborne song…

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

Well if God was indeed one of us he’d be a broke son-na-bitch, especially after getting hit with this lawsuit from a state senator in Nebraska.

The lawsuit, which is meant to show how frivolous and pointless lawsuits has become, blames God for: “making and continuing to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons, including constituents of Plaintiff who Plaintiff has the duty to represent.” It says God has caused “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects and the like.”

Pretty hefty accusations to place on one person if you ask me. I mean the damage caused by a major hurricane is in the billions…so it’s doubtful God has enough bankroll to pay for the damage he’s wrought with events throughout history. I mean you’re not talking in the billions or trillions…you’re talking in the nonameforitillions.

Fortunately for us (but unfortunate for him) God is indeed one of us. Actually he plays professional basketball in Portland, OR (leave it to God to live in an environmentally conscious area). I placed several calls into God about the lawsuit and he had no comment.

God had no comment regarding the kazillions worth of damage he’s wrought

Hopefully for his sake he can lay low for a bit while the lawsuit settles. Although I guess when you play in the International Basketball League that’s pretty much as out of the spotlight as you can get!
