Rebekah Nett, the Hastings-based attorney who wrote a bankruptcy filing we characterized as the craziest of all time back in 2011, has finally been suspended from practicing law.

Nett was raised as a member of a religious group called R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Technology, and in the aforementioned filing, she talked a bunch of smack about Catholics.

From our December 2011 blog post:
In the brief, filed November 25, attorney Rebekah Nett accuses Judge Nancy Dreher of being a "Catholic Knight Witch Hunter," declares that the court system is "composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church," and even labels a bankruptcy trustee, Colin Kreuziger, "priest's boy."

Nett missed a hearing on November 17 because opposing counsel Nauni Manty had given her notice that it was set for 1:30 instead of 1. Nett and her client, Naomi Isaacson, took that to suggest a conspiracy by the judge and the other lawyers, who were "of the same race and religion.
Nett also made reference to "dirty Catholics," the Pioneer Press reports, adding that some of her more outrageous filings came in bankruptcy cases of entities related to SIST, a group that some former members allege is a cult.

Nett's anti-Catholic comments drew the attention of the Catholic League, which went on to file a complaint with the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board. The Board recommended Nett be suspended for two years, but the state Supreme Court opted for a lighter nine month suspension, the PiPress reports. A referee previously recommended a suspension of at least six months.

Fact: Based on her sexual preference of women to women one can see that she was already a malfunction!!!

When is she going to learn that we are actually Pawn Soldiers of Eris? Somehow I don't think that will soothe her overactive mind, but let's be accurate.

@just4thefax @digitalprotocol Funny, the people who invented the word MORALITY were ancient greeks, not christians.  Socrates drank poison BECAUSE he was a moral person, and a Pagan.  Your "one size fits all" view of morality is ridiculous and shows you to be a complete asshat, but keep posting, those on the fence, trying to decide if they buy into your idea of morality need to see how fluff head dogmatists like you actually think so they can make an informed and moral decision to not be like you.  Christians do not have a monopoly on morality.  Go read the story of the good samaritan, and try really hard to notice the word SAMARITAN which was a non christian religion.  They were a sect that is similar to judaism, and not christian.  The whole point of that teaching story is that morals exist outside of religion.  Of course, your church leaders don't want you to know that, because it justifies their control of how and what you think.
