Athiest Holy Day

  1. Athiest 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 honour, 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 Honour, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."

    The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fool’s 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.
  2. Good for the judge.
  3. Haha. Good job judge :)
  4. I only wish the story was true.
    It would make it so much better.

    I still like the idea though.
  5. I'm sorry but I don't find this funny. But that's just me, I suppose. perhaps my "former atheist sensitivities" :)
  6. Very good! I will have to remember this one.

    I once quoted Psalm 14:1 to an atheist freind of mine (we have a good relationship where we can openly call each other fools :)), it left him speachless. Yes we are still freinds. I call him my Jewish atheist, because he is Jewish by birth and chooses to be an atheist. God has told me he will one day convert so I am still praying for that day.
  7. That is not only funny but very true--even if it didn't actually happen.
