This is one of the best senators ever. He’s an atheist, he has a strong moral compass, and he’s not above making fun of theists. He even sued God once for crimes and to stop terror threats as a publicity stunt. Read the brief, it’s great, and you can tell he’s having fun:
>”This Honorable court has jurisdiction by virtue of the fact that Defendant, being Omnipresent, is personally present in Douglas County.
>Defendant is present in Douglas County by and through putative agents, representatives, spokespersons (hereinafter “agents”) of various religious denominations, persuasions, cults and the like, who publicly and notoriously hold themselves out to be agents of Defendant who are authorized to speak for and represent Defendant.
>It would be a futile and perhaps unlawful act to nail a notice to the front door of each such agent, even if one were known. >Plantiff, despite reasonable efforts to effectuate personal service upon Defendant (“Come out, come out, wherevery you are”) has been unable to do so..
>Plantiff respectfully resquests this Honorable Court to take judicial notice that Defendant, in addition to being Omnipresent, also is all-knowing (“Omniscent”).
>Defendant has made and continues to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons, including constituents of Plaintiff who Plaintiff has the duty to represent.
>Defendant has manifested neither compassion nor remorse, proclaiming Defendant “will laugh” when calamity comes.
>Defendant has made and continues to make terroristic threats of more such calamitous catastrophes.
>Defendant’s ongoing terroristic threats are credible, based on Defendant’s past conduct and history.
I never thought I’d feel envious of Nebraskans, but their government is in good hands. They have a unicameral “non-partisan” parliament.
And he has done or threatened to do filibusters to block new conservative laws that hold back the lgbt. It’s too bad we don’t have any atheists in the US capital though:
