AGAINST ALL HOMOSEXUALS A Nebraska woman identifying herself as the “ambassador” for plaintiffs “God and His Son, Jesus Christ,” is suing all homosexuals on Earth for breaking “religious and moral laws,” according to court records filed Tuesday. 
In the suit, entered into the docket as Driskell v. Homosexuals, Sylvia Ann Driskell, 66, of Auburn, Nebraska, asks in a seven-page, neatly handwritten petition (PDF) that U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard decide once and for all whether homosexuality is or isn't a sin. The suit doesn't cite any case law under which a judge could make such a determination.

In fact, it cites no court cases at all, quoting Webster's Dictionary and numerous Bible verses, instead, to bolster Driskell's central contention, which is: “That homosexuality is a sin and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality. Why else would they have been hiding in the closet.” Driskell writes, "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." 
The suit was noticed by several gay activists and writers. Driskell, who's representing herself, didn't answer a call for comment. The court noted dryly that, regarding to the defendants, “No summons [was] issued.”

A 66-year-old Nebraska (USA) woman recently filed a lawsuit against all homosexuals. Sylvia Driskell's case is called “Driskell v. Homosexuals.” She is suing all homosexuals on Earth for breaking "religious and moral laws." She is representing herself as the 'ambassador' for 'plaintiffs God and His Son, Jesus Christ'. Last Thursday, a federal judge dismissed this woman's lawsuit against all "homosexuals" on the grounds that it failed to request a specific remedy and relied on biblical verses in a secular court. Indeed, Driskell's filing "consists of seven pages of her personal and religious views on the subject of homosexuality," the court explained. Because of these fundamental flaws in the filing, the court dismissed the case. With regard to homosexuality our teachers have already inquired, “What is this phenomenon? How do you face this problem? What it is and what is not? What happens inside a person to be inclined towards homosexuality? Is it organic? Is it karmic, ie by reactions of his activities in past lives? Is it hereditary?” In truth, we do not know well. What we do know is that homosexuality is not something demonic but there are men and women with homosexual tendencies or preferences. We must broaden our vision, open our hearts and live with it. To achieve this we must begin to improve ourselves, purify and qualify us more and more to serve more and more to all, without exception. Everyone should be qualified. ¿Qualify for? To love and to serve others. We should love people as they are, not as you want them to be. Would you love only the people who perfectly fit your ideal man and woman? Well, if you think so then you are staying without giving or receiving love because nobody is perfect. We must put aside fundamentalisms, eradicating our prejudices, change mindsets and expand our capacity to love and achieve real progress in our spiritual life. (Editor's note).

I have had homosexual people who want to join my temple and in fact there are devotees who have undergone sex reassignment surgeries, and are doing important services. Can you condemn it? It is a complicated issue because they also want to be with Krishna. In one way or another they have an issue with their gender identity, and want to dress like the opposite sex and What to do? So life is not easy, in my service I deal with everything. […] It is something that exists, it can also be by psychological repression. There is not a proper way I know to handle this but what I do know is that love should not be excluded. Perhaps even more love in these situations are required. Difficult situations have their reason and devotees in general are not homophobic. They are not hateful towards anyone.
