A NEBRASKA WOMAN is attempting to sue all homosexuals.

Sylvia Ann Driskell (aged 66) has launched a civil rights suit under the 1983 Civil Rights Act at Nebraska District Court, with herself as the plaintiff and ‘homosexuals’ as the defendant.

In the court documents, which were filed at the District Court on 15 May, Driskell describes herself as “Ambassador for Plaintiffs God and his son, Jesus Christ”, saying the defendants are “homosexuals, their given name homosexuals, their alis [sic] gay”.

A sin or not a sin

She says in the documents that as ambassador for God, she wants it to be heard “in the matter of homosexuality is homosexuality a sin or not a sin”.

Driskell says that the defendants say that it is not a sin to be a homosexual, and “they have the right to marry, to be parents, and God doesn’t care that their [sic] homosexuals; because He loves them”.

The documents go on to say that Driskell has “heard the boasting of the defendant, the homosexuals on the world news” and that she contends that homosexuality is a sin, and that “they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality”.

Her case is detailed over 29 points across six and a half pages, and ends with a quote from Lamentations 3:22.

No summons was issued for the case.

It’s not known when, or if, Driskell will be appearing in court.
