ernie chambers sues god, gets smited.

According to the AP, Ernie Chambers,  a state senator from Nebraska, filed a permanent injunction against God. Why in all of God’s great goodness would he do a thing like that?

He said God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha, inspired fear and caused “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.”

And what do you think happened to him?  Locusts, struck down by lightening, etc.  The usual.  Okay so God didn’t smite him, but Ernie C’s lawsuit against God was thrown out by the judge.  Why?  Because God doesn’t have an address, duh.  Judge Marlon Park said, “Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice”

But Ernie the heretic went to law school.  (But never took the bar exam.) So he had a response to that too– “Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit.”  Well played, Ernie.

Apparently Ernie is a rebel in the state senate.  He doesn’t go to morning prayer.  If Ernie was a Catholic school girl, he’d totally be the slut that rolled her skirt.

i’ll see you at the pole.

Because I’m a super nerd, I like to look at Google Trends and see what the kids are Googling these days.  Obviously when I saw “see you at the pole” as one of the top terms, I had to check it out.  Do you know what immediately came into my head?  Stripping and pole dancers.  Perhaps “see you at the pole” is used as a challenge for pole dancers–like a walk off…but crazier.  Maybe we’re talking about Santa and the North Pole. I don’t know.

See You At The Pole is actually a day each year when Christian students gather at the flag pole and pray before school.  Ummm.  What a let down.

Two million students are expected to have participated this morning in the See You At The Pole 2008.

This raises questions of the separation between church and state.  While this occurs outside of school hours and is student led, should administrators be allowed to participate?  Where are the lines drawn?  What do you think would happen if I’ll See You At The Pole 2008 was all about devil worship?

Lots of thoughts for your Wednesday morning.

Pole dancing is way more fun to think about, right?  But what do you think?
