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.

You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!

This is too good not to forward.

It is awful rude of his grandmother though.
Thanks for the idea I sent her a message back saying thanks for the scripture and heres one back and gave her Mathew 5:22

I left it up to her to look it up.
right on, nelson!
Typical "If you are not Christian, you're a bad person" ramblings. I used to get a lot of these from my family until I started replying and disassembling their arguments.
I got a response from her.... in the subject she put Very Good

"I liked the Bible Verse you sent me. I'm sending it back to the woman who sent that joke to me. She is a Christian so I'll be interested to hear what she has to say to that."
Obvious myth is obvious. Such a citation of scripture would be blatantly unconstitutional.
WooooHoooooo!! Tomorrow is April 1st, my day!!!! I'm sleeping in.
