Nebraskan woman sues every homosexual in America

Sixty-six year old Nebraskan native Sylvia Driskell is suing every homosexual in the United States of America as of Tuesday, May 5, 2015. Driskell submitted a petition to the District Court of Omaha, Nebraska asking a judge if being gay is considered a sin.

Freshman Miranda Little says, “It’s not only ignorant but it’s also stupid and arrogant. I don’t even know where to start with this, but oh my gosh. It’s one thing to be homophobic, but it’s another to act on these thoughts. And how will they all go to court? If this goes any further than a proposition, I’ll be shocked with the American judicial system.”

Driskell filed a seven page handwritten lawsuit titled “Sylvia Ann Driskell vs Homosexuals” in which she quotes Bible passages and Webster’s Dictionary. Obviously, no attorney is defending her, agreeing with her, or believing that she is in her right mind.

Another huge question in the future of this case – how will every gay person in America fit inside a single courtroom? Are there any courtrooms that will hold the 9,065,837 and counting members of the LGBT community? (stats last taken in 2012)

Driskell, using Webster’s Dictionary, defines sin as the “willful breaking of a religious or moral law.” She goes on to say that it is imperative for a judge to declare homosexuals as sinners to protect the ideals and morals of America.

“I never thought that I would see a day in which our great nation or our own great state of Nebraska would become so compliant to the complicity of some people’s lewd behavior,” says Driskell, “and that homosexuality is a sin and that the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in the closet.”

Plenty of gay activists have spoken out using humor or exposing the absurdity of the entire case. Many are excited to take the stand and completely destroy the opinions of Driskell.

Freshman Kiera Sears says, “I wonder if she’s ever met or had a conversation with a homosexual. I highly doubt it because then she should have realized that they’re people, too, and they love who they love, regardless of gender.”

Unfortunately, the roasting will  most likely never take place because the judicial system calls for the separation of church and state. Declaring whether or not being gay is a sin is a matter of the church and cannot be ruled on by a state judge.

If Driskell really was following religious guidelines, she would acknowledge that the current Pope Francis does not see homosexuality as a sin.


Judge John Gerrard has dismissed this case on the basis that Driskell has no federal or legal claim, and she lacks subject matter jurisdiction. She has also overlooked the fact that you cannot sue unidentified defendants. Looks like Driskell is going to need to find out the names of the nine million homosexuals she hopes to sue.

Gerrard says, “The United States Federal Courts were created to resolve actual cases and controversies arising under the Constitution and the laws of the United States. A federal court is not a forum for debate or discourse on theological matters.”

What do you think of Sylvia Driskell’s claims?
