Gotta love this Judge.

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, Yum 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!

That is awesome and so true. I will never view April fools day in the same way. Great story.

Wow...I wonder if he realizes that "Easter" has pagan origins??....isn't that enough?!!

Anywho, I came to your blog after reading your comment at "The View From My Beach Chair" regarding old sitcoms - the one you are thinking of was called "Perfect Strangers" and was my all-time favorite funny show! There are clips on YouTube, too. One of the first options you will find under a search is the "Dance of Joy" that Balki does!! Too funny.

By the way I love your picture with your cat!

Blessings!
