    An atheist holiday

    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.

    Wish I could have seen the look on their face.

    The atheists had better treat every day they live on Earth as a holiday.

    Why is this in the pit? Have we had an atheist uprising on the board?

    Re: An atheist holiday

    I didn't know where else to put it? It isn't politics... and not sports... I guess i just imagined something called the Flammers pit had something to do with letting off steam... and people who say there is no God then request a "HOLYday" just fill me up with steam.

    And John Wayne isn't God... just a prophet, pilgrim

    I thought you must have been moved in here by an admin, thus the question.

    There is a whole lot of religion on the politics board. It also fits on the joke thread. I found it entertaining, but figured not many folks would see it in the pit.

    Re: An atheist holiday

    As an atheist, I would hope that none of my kind ever bring up this sort of crap and waste the court's time. Every day that isn't a religious holiday is a holiday for atheists.

    The OP's joke was funny. I liked it.

    Cheers all.

    Yep, he probably wakes up in the middle of the night wondering if he has a relative at the zoo.
