Man sues God; Court dismisses case, ruling He does not have an address
A Romanian convict, serving 20 years for murder, lost a suit filed against God-the court contending Gods address was not known. Pavel Mircea, 40, sued God for fraud and betrayal of trust, when He failed to answer his prayers. According to Mircea, he had a contract with God when he was baptized. The defendant was supposed to protect Mircea from all evils but did not keep his promise. Moreover, God gave Mircea to Satan who instigated the man to kill. The convict also demanded compensation for the monies he spent on candles and church services. Apparently, his demands were not honored. The legal proceedings against God, which were going on since 2005, finally ended when the court in Timisoara dismissed the case, decreeing, "God is not subject to law and does not have an address."
