Got a link from Ace of Spades HQ, where a man from Haifa, Israel seeks to put a “restraining order” on God, claiming that The Ancient of Days has been very mean to him.
A protocol of the hearing noted that God did not turn up for the session, although it did not specify how the court determined the Omnipresent was not in fact there, as opposed to merely exercising the right to remain silent.
The petitioner, who was not named in the report, noted that he had tried to obtain the restraining order from police for the past three years but that police had merely sent a patrol car to his home on 10 occasions.
He argued that over a three-year period God, had exhibited a seriously negative attitude toward him, although details of just what divine mischief he had borne the brunt of were not mentioned in the report.
I know that people who do such things are crazy, but one wonders whether this dude’s craziness is genetic or willful. In my experience—and according to Paul–it is often kooky ideas about the nature of God which nuts-up a person. So is it the chicken or the egg?
At any rate, the petition, for which the man represented himself, was heard and denied by the judge.
Jurisdiction, jurisdiction, jurisdiction.
God does sometimes give people—and nations—what they want, including His absence if that’s what they request. He’ll give you Barabbas and “wonder” why you’re mad at Him because of it.
For this guy’s sake, I hope God decides to cut him a break. At least the guy knows God exists.
