Calling God as a Witness, Hello, God?

I could not resist re-posting this:  Court summons for Hindu gods

Two popular Hindu gods have been summoned to a court in India as witnesses in a property dispute as a judge in the eastern state of Jharkhand issued notices to the revered Ram and to the monkey god Hanuman.

Court officers went to the temple at the heart of the dispute to deliver the summons but no one was willing to accept the orders on behalf of the gods, the report said.

Though the temple was initially given to the family of Manmohan Pathak in the 1920's, a local worshiper successfully petitioned for the temple to be declared public property in 1987.

A spate of appeals followed, with Halder adding the gods' names to his petition.

What's next, God on Jury duty??
