A fool has his day

In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter and Passover holidays.  He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists had no holiday to celebrate.
The case was brought before a judge.  After listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel and declared, ‘Case dismissed!

The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, ‘Your honour, how can you possibly dismiss this case?  The Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances.  Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah…yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!
The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, ‘Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his own atheists’ holiday!’  The lawyer pompously said, ‘Your Honour, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists.  Just when might that holiday be, your Honour?’

The judge said, ‘Well it comes every year on exactly the same date—April 1st!  Since our calendar sets April 1st as ‘April Fool’s Day,’ consider that Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God.’  Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by Scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday!  Now have a good day and get out of my courtroom!

  3. I got this in my email, copied it into a post, and dated it next April 1, so I could publish it then. I guess it’s pretty true no matter the date.

  4. Oh that’s a good one!!!

  5. Lol, good comeback.

  6. Whether or not that really happened, who knows. But by golly, I think it was a darned smart judge that decreed that one if it did really happen!
