FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY
In Florida , an atheist created a case
against the upcoming Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney
to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances
of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists
had no such recognized days.
The case was brought before a judge.
After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge
banged his gavel declaring," Case dismissed!"
The lawyer immediately stood objecting
to the ruling saying, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this
case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have
Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my Client and all other atheists
have no such holidays."
The judge leaned forward in his chair
saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."
The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are
unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
The judge said, "The calendar says
April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his
heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if
your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April
1st is his day. Court is adjourned."
