The name should be changed, it is obvious that they made it and not 'god'. This is a fraudulent name for the story, and will make people think that there was actually a divine event. Contralya 17:24, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done...made it so that the clerk claims god responded. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 17:28, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't mind the change, but considering that all three news sources worded their stories the same way, I don't think we should worry about tricking readers into thinking it was literally divine providence. The way it is titled now it makes it sound as if the clerk is the genesis of the claim it was God, when really the genesis of the claim was the filed papers he received. So if someone contacted him and said, "That wasn't God, court clerk, how could you claim such a thing?" his response would be, "I didn't claim it was God, the papers did and I just read them as they read." So, the current title is actually a little worse since it involves a real person. --David Shankbone 17:37, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How is it now? :) DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 17:39, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Better, but the papers themselves don't say God resopnded; they are the response. What about "Court papers filed on behalf of God respond to lawsuit by Nebraska Senator" --David Shankbone 17:41, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
