Don't know if this is true or not but it sure made me smile.

You must read this...a proper decision by the courts...for a change....


In Florida , an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and 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...".

You gotta love a Judge who knows his scripture!
