A Nebraska woman has filed suit against gay people, yes, all of them. . . because Jesus.
Sylvia Driskell, 66, says she is an “ambassador” for the plaintiffs “God and His Son, Jesus Christ,” and is suing all the homosexuals on the planet for violating “religious and moral laws.” She filed the seven-page petition herself, which was written entirely in cursive, and will serve as her own attorney in Driskell v. Homosexuals.
Now, U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard is tasked with giving the ultimate ruling on whether or not homosexuality is a sin.
The case doesn’t feature any of that legal mumbo jumbo, like case law or anything. Instead, Driskell quotes the Websters Dictionary and, of course, the Bible. Here is a sampling of her main argument:
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 that it has all just become too much to bear.
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.
Dan Savage, who is a columnist, LGBT activist, and one of the millions being sued by Ms. Driskell, says he would be more than happy to testify.
Steven Payne, who describes himself as a “gay feller,” wrote of the impact the lawsuit is having on his life.
“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,” Payne wrote. “In the meantime, our fear is so great we have ceased and desisted being homosexual.”
Driscoll has not responded to requests for comment. According to NBC, “the court noted dryly that, regarding the defendants, ‘No summons [was] issued.'”
