A Holiday for an Atheist
In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation for Easter and
Passover holidays. He decided to contact his lawyer about the
discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded
to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists had no
holiday to celebrate. The case was brought before a judge. After
listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge
banged his gavel and declared, 'Case dismissed!'
The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, 'Your
honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have
Christmas, Easter and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom
Kippur and Hanukkah...yet my client and all other atheists have no such
The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, 'Obviously your
client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his
own atheists' holiday!'
The lawyer pompously said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday
for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?'
The judge said, 'Well it comes every year on exactly the same date---
April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as 'April Fools Day,'
consider that Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no
God.' Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by
scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now have a good day
and get out of my courtroom!!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia
