'COURT SETS ATHEISTS' HOLIDAY '
(This 'court case' is an interesting legend & makes an excellent point !!!
Here's what Snopes says:
Have you heard about this 'court case'?
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 various holidays, while atheists had no holiday to celebrate.
The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the long passionate pleading by the atheist's lawyer, the Judge banged his gave,,, and declared, 'Case dismissed!' The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said: 'Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter, and many other observances. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah and other observances .....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 replied:
"Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?'
The judge said, "Well it comes every year on exactly the same date---April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as 'April Fools Day.'
Now, consider what Psalm 14:1 states, as follows:
'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.'
Therefore, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by scripture , he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday every year !!!'
Now have yourself a good day and you have been dismissed from my courtroom !!!!!
Way to go, Judge, Your Honor, Sir.
