Suing God (honest, it's a lawsuit that has really been filed)

I'm embarrassed to admit that this guy is a long-term state senator here in Nebraska. This does, however, seem to be the biggest possible interaction between religion and law.
LINCOLN, Neb. - Fed up with the threats, tired of natural disasters, the state's longest-serving state senator is using his legal muscle against who he says is the culprit - God. State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued the Almighty in Douglas County District Court last week.
Chambers says in his lawsuit that God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."
Chambers also says God has caused "fearsome floods ... horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes."
He's seeking a permanent injunction against God.
