AUBURN, Neb. — A Nebraska woman has filed a federal lawsuit against all homosexuals on Earth for breaking "religious and moral laws," NBC News reports.
According to court records filed Tuesday and posted by NBC, Sylvia Ann Driskell, 66, of Auburn, Nebraska, is asking a federal judge to decide whether homosexuality "is or isn't a sin."
Driskell's seven pages of handwritten documents were filed as Driskell v. Homosexuals. The legal briefs contain facts from Webster's Dictionary and scripture from the Bible, but she doesn't mention any case law to back her case.
Her main argument 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?" the NBC story says.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — A cabin rental office in Tennessee received surprise visitors this week.
A bear roamed the parking lot of the Chalet Village office on Wednesday, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. After unsuccessfully trying to access a trash bin and pausing at the front door, the bear sauntered over to a company pickup truck and easily opened the door. The bear climbed into the back of the truck momentarily, before being shooed out by employees.
Chalet Village representative Cindy Dale Jenkins told the Knoxville News Sentinel that another bear paid a visit to a company truck on Thursday, this time settling into the driver's seat.

CASSELBERRY, Fla. — A Florida man told his roommate, "The next one's going in you!" after shooting at him following an altercation over cat hair, according to a police report obtained by WFTV.
The incident occurred April 26 at a home in Casselberry.
Craig Allen Tull told the responding officer his roommate, Christopher D. Schaffner, did not clean up after his cat when it left hair all over the couch. He said he ordered Schaffner to leave the house, but he refused, at which point he shoved Schaffner.
Schaffner told police he was sitting at his computer in the living room when Tull got his gun from his bedroom and pointed it at him, firing a round in his direction but not hitting him. Schaffer also told the officer Tull grabbed his car keys from his belt before jabbing the gun into his rib cage, causing minor bruising.
Crime scene investigators found bullet holes in a wood cabinet that were consistent with the silver Taurus Judge revolver in the home, WFTV reported.
Police arrested Tull, but had to use four sets of handcuffs because he was unable to put his hands behind his back. He faces multiple charges, included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
Schaffner told the officer he and Tull have been roommates for two years since Schaffner's girlfriend died.
