Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

Quote:
Subject: Florida Court Case

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."
I lol'd.

The fact that it's America makes me not surprised.
Also, nice post count, Lexxi. 13337 is close to epic.

Re: Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

That is funny, wasn't it for the fact that that is a real judge. Oh well luckily I have little chance of ever having to stand in court in Florida.

That would be more fitting in a different state, I think. One of the Bible Belt states.

Still amusing, in its own way.

Re: Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

Re: Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day

If this was real that judge would have been *********d.

It is somewhat funny...it's not how such a case would be handled but still provides the lolz.

Well, if someone didn't read a one-liner it's less likely they'd read a several line post that says the same thing.
