FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY: In Florida, an atheist created a case against Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and their observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognised holy 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. Counsel, your client is woefully ignorant." The lawyer then retorted, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
To which the judge replied, "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 holiday. Court is adjourned."
