Case Dismissed!

This was an email forward I got and I thought it was pretty funny. Had to share. Sorry if any of my readers are atheist, I don't think I know any atheists, but if so, it's still funny!
I've had nothing to post about for a while. Life is just ho-hum and going along as normal. Hope everyone is doing well!

Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day
In Florida, an atheist created a case against the 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 it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.

The case was brought before the 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 dismissed."
