Just when you think things can’t get any more ridiculous… a man tries to get a restraining order against God. For REAL! The TimesOfIsrael reports:
An Israeli man has petitioned the Haifa Magistrate’s Court for a restraining order against God, claiming the Almighty has been particularly unkind to him.
He argued that over a three-year period God, had exhibited a seriously negative attitude toward him.
I’m not sure how this paperwork even got as far as a judge. Maybe because it’s Israel. And for them, God is still real. Had the paperwork been filed here in the U.S., it would likely have been thrown out, because, you know, God is an imaginary, fictitious character.
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.
Thankfully, the judge didn’t waste any time in throwing this one out, citing the request as:
ludicrous, asserting the applicant needed help not from the court but rather from other source.
Right! Because we ALL know that God is good, ALL the time!
