Sylvia Ann Driskell, a Nebraska woman, contended that all homosexuals know homosexuality is a sin and that they are liars and deceivers and thieves. She prosecuted them on behalf of ‘God and His Son, Jesus Christ’ and claims to be their ‘Ambassador’. She laid out her
arguments in a seven-page hand written petition to the United State District Court of Omaha.
She asked that U.S. District Judge, John M. Gerrard, to decide once and for all whether homosexuality is or isn’t a sin. She didn’t have any legal precedent to fall back on, instead she quotes from the Bible and puts forward dictionary definitions of sin. She bolsters her argument by quoting from Leviticus, writing: ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind. It is an abomination.’ She had her case thrown out by a court.
In his summary, Judge John Gerrard said: “This court is not the place to seek opinions regarding theological matters; this particular forum is closed and the case will be dismissed. The court may decide what is lawful, not what is sinful.”….. all homosexuals in Nigeria r now gathering in front of Aso Rock to celebrate d victory……
