(Editors Note: Don’t know if this is true, but it makes for a fun story)

You must read this…for a change, a proper decision by the courts!!
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, 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!

  • Hahahaha, great.. I will really love a judge who knows the scripture… Hope that we have same judge in our place who knows God and of course believes in His power. The praise is in HIM! Let us pray that our legislators, judges and other government officials may have the desire and the eagerness to know the Words and Works of our God.

    God is really great and He is really powerful.

    Inspirational perhaps, but the story itself is fiction. More like a parable.
