FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY : In Florida , an
> atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover
> holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination
> case against Christians, Jews & observances of their
> holy days. The argument was it was unfair that atheists had
> no such recognized day.
>
> 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 &
> others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur & Hanukkah.
> Yet my client & all other atheists have no such
> holidays."
>
> The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you
> do. Counsel, your client 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."
