Did you know you almost got sued for being gay?


judge_throws_out_lawsuit_against_all_gay_peopleWhew, that was close! An American woman’s attempt to sue every gay and lesbian person in the world has thankfully been thwarted.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Sylvia Driskell from Nebraska lodged the lawsuit in Omaha, claiming to be an ambassador of God and Jesus Christ.

In the seven-page handwritten petition, headed “Sylvia Ann Driskell vs Homosexuals”, she demanded that a federal judge officially declare homosexuality a sin.

“I’m sixty-six years old and never thought 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 people’s lewd behaviour,” she wrote.

Referencing the Bible, Driskell argued “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(?)”

She claimed that it’s thanks to God’s mercy and compassion that “we are not consumed.”

On Wednesday, Judge John Gerrard, who was assigned the suit, dismissed the petition in its entirety.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, he said that Driskell’s suit had no legal or factual basis.

Gerrard added that, “A federal court is not a forum for debate or discourse on theological matters.”
