Why was he doing this?
To show (in his words) “that anyone can sue anyone including God. It’s an object lesson too. It demonstrates that the mere filing of a lawsuit doesn’t guarantee a win.”
Chambers appeared in court on Tuesday, where a judge “took the case under advisement.”
“He may reach a decision on the 12th of never and when that happens I may be crippling around here and I’ll say it came to pass on my 120th birthday, and at that point I’ll be able to tell that it did come to pass,” Chamber said.
Chambers said he’s been surprised at how many Christians attacked him and his family after the lawsuit (PDF).
He said Baptists, Methodists and Universalists all urged him to leave the lawsuit with them. But he couldn’t, he said, because each of them doesn’t accept each other’s God.
“For all we know, God was sitting in one of the empty chairs in the courtroom today chuckling at the lawsuit, laughing that he made this guy, Chambers — if you believe in that sort of thing,” [Chambers] said.
The lawsuit, a hilarious read, is here (PDF).
Hopefully the judge understands the point Chambers was trying to make.
