Does God Need a Lawyer?

Apparently there's one man in Romania who wasn't paying close attention when he was baptized. He says the Almighty backed out of their deal.

"God received different material valuables from me, as well as prayers in exchange for promises of a better life. In reality, this did not happen - I found myself in the devil's hands," the plaintiff said.
The convict is serving 20 years in the west Romanian city of Timisoara. He apparently blames God for the troubles in his life and wants God brought to account for failing to fulfill the commitments He undertook and for taking bribes.
The plaintiff said that when he had been baptized in childhood, he concluded a contract with God that had legal effect - God was supposed to protect him from evil.

Wouldn't they have to figure out some way to serve God with a summons? (A tip of the ol' ballcap to Dave Barry's blog.)

Ah, well. No lawyers necessary to access the latest Christian Carnival now posted at Jordan's View. Stop by and check things out.
