Woman Files Lawsuit Against ALL Homosexuals


As the Supreme Court debates same-sex marriage, one woman has drawn the attention of the LGBT community with a new lawsuit.

Sylvia Ann Driskell, a 66-year-old from Nebraska, filed a lawsuit against every homosexual on the planet.

In a seven-page handwritten petition, Driskell asked a U.S. district judge to decide once and for all whether homosexuality is or isn't a sin.

"That homosexuality is a sin, and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality," she wrote in her petition. "Why else would they have been hiding in a closet....I'm sixty six years old, an [sic] I never thought that I would see the day in which our Great Nation or Our Great State of Nebraska would become so compliant to the complicity of some peoples [sic] lewd behavior."

In Driskell v. Homosexuals, the woman identifies herself as "the ambassador" for plaintiffs "God and His Son, Jesus Christ" and accuses all homosexuals of breaking "religious and moral laws."

She doesn't cite any cases under law but mentions many Bible verses for the judge to consider.

Gay activists have enjoyed poking fun at the lawsuit.

Daily Kos' Steven Payne wrote about the lawsuit in an entry titled, "My husband and I are being sued."

"We've had a good run," he joked in the post. "But this is all about to crash and burn around our ears thanks to 66-year-old Sylvia Driskell of Auburn, Nebraska."

Sex advice columnist Dan Savage tweeted, "Man, I hope I get deposed."

So far the court has not issued any summons for the hundreds of millions of defendants.
