FloridaCourt Sets Atheist Holy Day!   Gotta love this Judge!   
 
       You must read this.......a proper decision by the courts...for a change.  
      
       FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY
       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 that knows his scripture!
This is too good not to forward

I'm sure this totally happened, just like they said it did. Yup, no way they made this up out of thin air.

Yeah, yeah: the constitution REALLY REALLY didn't mean all that stuff about separation of Church and State.

moronic and not even a little funny

But... but I thought that judges ruling based on religious doctrine was a bad thing!

Oh, that's just for Islam? Okay, lemme jot that down...

Snopes declares it 'false'. Of course snopes is 'totally in the bag' with us Lefties...so the RW retards won't belive it.

Not to mention this little gem has been floating around since at least 2003.

Welp, the atheists got pwned again by the right wing religious super-majority.

Too bad none of us give a shit.

A classic Biblical strategy: When your fable-based religion can't be used to dominate everyone on its own merits you just make up another fable where your belief system wins against an imaginary enemy. And while you're at it find a good bible verse to explain it all.

Why do the Christiansts constantly pit religion against atheism and science? Atheism is about absence of religion & God. No actual atheist would claim they don't have a holiday! ARRRRGGGG
