Case against God dismissed in Romanian court
A Romanian man who sued God for "fraud" and "betrayal of trust" for failing to answer his prayers has had his case dismissed in court, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.
Mircea Pavel (40), who is serving 20 years in prison for murder, brought charges against "the defendant God, who lives in the heavens and is represented in Romania by the Orthodox Church", the daily Evenimentul Zilei reported.
He accused God of "fraud, betrayal of trust, corruption and influence peddling".
"At my christening, I made a deal with the defendant aimed at freeing me from evil. But the latter has not respected that agreement until now, although he received from me various assets and numerous prayers," Pavel wrote.
The court in Timisoara, in western Romania, dismissed the case, ruling that "God is not subject to law and does not have an address". -- Sapa-AFP
