Take this as nothing more than a rant. However, I had to unload on someone, and who better than my fellow non-believers.
This morning, I was in a hearing in Court on an appointed case where my client had proceedings filed to extradite him to another state on a felony charge, which carried 5 years in prison. The warrant from the other state had been filed a month ago, and since that time, my client has sat in a jail cell, unable to post bail.
At the hearing, I made what I believed was a well thought out argument as to why the other state was not acting in good faith, and in the process, violating the law. I had researched this thoroughly, and cited everything from the Constitution, to appellate court opinions, to statute law. Apparently, it was a good argument, since the judge agreed with me, dismissed the case, and cut my client loose.
Here's the rant part. Momma was sitting in the Courtroom, and when the judge ordered the case dismissed and set my client free, she started thanking God and Jesus. After she was calmed down, she went out in the hallway, with my client and they both started praising the Lord for setting him free. Not once, did either of them ever even acknowledge my presence, say so much as a thank you, or even a "go to hell." Nothing. The Jewish Zombie and his firm got all the credit.
When working on this case, I don't ever recall Jesus helping draft a brief, researching statute or case law, formulating any arguments., or so much as getting me a cup of coffee when I got stuck on something.
I guess since Jesus did all the work, I should let him collect the bill. Anybody got a current mailing on address for him?
