God - a law unto Himself
I've never seen the film The Man Who Sued God but it would seem that former US state senator Ernie Chambers has and has decided to bring a real life case against God 'to prevent the "death, destruction and terrorisation" caused by God'. However the case has been thrown out because God does not have an address and cannot be served noticed of the case. (BBC News: Legal case against God dismissed) Well He is aware of everything, but doesn't exactly interact the way other defendants in lawsuits do. So a judge has ruled that God cannot be sued, and He remains above the law and above us all. Attempts to force Him to conform to mortal procedures and bureaucracy will always fail and rightly so.
