Judge sets Atheist Holy Day

An atheist filed suit against the Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring the suit, a discrimination case, against Christians, Jews, and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it is unfair that atheists had no such recognized day(s). 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 atheist's 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 Kipper, and Hanukkah. Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But they 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."
