Israeli Man Seeks Restraining Order Against God

A Jewish man by the name of David Shoshan (if the name wasn’t a clue) has gone to court to get a restraining order against God himself.

Mr. Shoshan went to court in the city of Haifa, Israel to petition for the restraining order.  While failing to give specific examples, Mr. Shoshan stated that God has treated him “harshly and not nicely.”  The records showed that God failed to show up to defend himself.

The Independent Reports:  Mr Shoshan claimed he made several attempts to contact police to report God’s alleged crimes, and that patrol cars had been sent to his house on 10 occasions.

However, the measure was ineffective against the deity and police advised him to take out a restraining order.

The court denied Mr. Shoshan’s request, stating that the request was delusional.  Was this the right call to make?  Or is this an example of the court denying aid to a man trying to get out of an abusive relationship?  Believe it or not, I think there’s a Bible verse that fits this situation pretty well.

“For God so loved the world, he sent his only begotten son… Because a court order forbid him from coming within 500 feet of the residence.”
