FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holy
days.
He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians,
Jews and observances of their holy days.
The argument was it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day(s).
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, etc. The Jews have Passover, Yom
Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, 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 shows 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.

only a figment of someone's fertile imagination. The only Florida sanctioned holiday related to a particular religion is Christmas. So the Summons&Complaint by the atheist on a charge of "discrimination" probably would not have been acceptable, unless it specifically also challenged whether recognition of a "Christian" holy day violated the separation doctrine.

The "Judge" in the "case" was quite funny and quick, but basing a decision on an Old Testament Psalm and a personally held theological belief, is VERY shakey, sure to be reversed, on appeal.
