A DAY SET ASIDE FOR FOOLS


In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the fact that there were no special days set aside for atheists to celebrate. He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded other religions. 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 honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? There are holidays set aside and recognized for religions in this country, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!" The judge replied, "Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his own atheists' holiday!" The lawyer answered, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any such day for atheists. Just when might that day 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,' consider that Psalm 14:1 and Psalm 53:1 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, thus April 1st is his special day of recognition!"
