The issue of gay marriage has been all over the news lately. Â In the past two years alone, there have been 65 rulings in favor of marriage for same-sex couples. Two weeks ago, a Christian couple was fined 135,000 for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding. You may remember last month when death threats were issued to a pizzeria that was quoted saying they wouldn’t feel comforting catering a gay wedding. A 70 year old grandmother in Washington was fined 1,000 dollars and ordered to participate in a gay wedding. A woman in Nebraska has watched cases like this appearing everyday, and she has decided to do something about it.
From NBC News:
“A Nebraska woman identifying herself as the “ambassador” for plaintiffs “God and His Son, Jesus Christ,” is suing all homosexuals on Earth for breaking “religious and moral laws,” according to court records filed Tuesday.
In the suit, entered into the docket as Driskell v. Homosexuals, Sylvia Ann Driskell, 66, of Auburn, Nebraska, asks in a seven-page, neatly handwritten petition (PDF) that U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard decide once and for all whether homosexuality is or isn’t a sin.
The suit doesn’t cite any case law under which a judge could make such a determination. In fact, it cites no court cases at all, quoting Webster’s Dictionary and numerous Bible verses, instead, to bolster Driskell’s central contention, which is:
“That homosexuality is a sin and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in the closet.”
Driskell writes, “I’m sixty six years old, an [sic] I never thought that I would see the day in which our Great Nation or Our Great State of Nebraska would become so compliant to the complicity of some peoples [sic] lewd behavior.”
Driskell added in the petition to the court that God has said homosexuality is an abomination. She challenged the court to not call God a liar.
Although many news outlets have tried, the woman has not been contacted yet. No one knows if she is serious, or if this is just a symbolic gesture. Either way, she has gotten the attention of liberals everywhere, I’m sure death threats will be coming soon.
