Nebraska Women Files Lawsuit Against All Homosexuals, Is God's Ambassador...

Just when we thought we'd seen it all. Ya just can't make this crazy s*it up!

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."

The suit was noticed by several gay activists and writers, including Dan Savage, the advice columnist, who said, "Man, I hope I get deposed!" and Steven Payne, a self-described "gay feller," who wrote in The Daily Kos:

"Brian (his husband) and I will be liquidating our assets in preparation for a certain loss. We anticipate the restitution ordered to this woman will take us down to our very last penny. In the meantime, our fear is so great we have ceased and desisted being homosexual."

Driskell, who's representing herself, didn't answer a call for comment. The court noted dryly that, regarding to the defendants, "No summons [was] issued."


The lawsuit against all gays identifies Sylvia Ann Driskell as the 'ambassador' for 'plaintiffs God and His Son, Jesus Christ'

And, how long can it be before Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, and Rick Santorum (perhaps others as well) will weigh in on this new twist in the anti marriage equality assault? Any bettors?

  1. An ambassador? Then she seems to be calling on the right of foreign nationals and/or governments to participate in our legal system.

    I am not a lawyer, obviously. And this linked site might be full of baloney. I suspect, though, that it might point toward the only direction she can go in:

    "I sometimes hear on the news that one country is suing another. How does this work and what court hears the case? I googled my question and came up empty-handed.
    ...
    One option is the International Court of Justice. Countries agree to settle their disputes there, or occasionally have previously agreed to go that court on topics X,Y,Z and just get sued there. They are often the biggest cases - the use of force by the US in Nicaragua, boundary disputes, whether or not a victim of war crimes can sue a foreign country for those war crimes (aka can italian citizens sue germany for nazi war crimes, while in italy) - but not always. That would be my first thought, given no other information."


    So, I suggest this ambassador take it up with the ICJ. Unless the diplomatic corps of this nation she represents is numerous. no doubt she will quickly get bogged down in paperwork, setting up an embassy through REGUS, Godaddy national domain name registrations, and the rest of the immense bureacratic business involved in running a nation state and diplomacy....and she will probably be quite overwhelmed.

  2. Suit was dismissed yesterday, according to reports.

  3. It costs money to file a lawsuit, and she spent what she did to have the suit quickly and predictably tossed... And be made fun of in the news. But maybe someone created a "go fund me" page for her and she's now a wealthy woman? That actually may have been a good idea. Far as I know, however, nothing like that happened.
