The Holiday

In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation for
Easter and Passover holidays and decided to contact the local
ACLU about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the
constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all
their holidays while the atheists had no holiday to celebrate.

The ACLU jumped on the opportunity to once again pick up the
cause of the godless and assigned their sharpest attorneys to
the case.  The case was brought before a wise judge who after
listening to the long, passionate presentation of the ACLU
lawyers, promptly banged his gavel and declared,
"Case dismissed!"

The lead ACLU lawyer immediately stood and objected to the
ruling and said, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this
case?  Surely the Christians have Christmas, Easter, and many
other observances.  And the Jews--why in addition to Passover
they have Yom Kippur and Hanukkah... and yet my client and all
other atheists have no such holiday!"

The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said,
"Obviously your client is too confused to know about, or for
that matter, even celebrate the atheists' holiday!"

The ACLU lawyer pompously said, "We are aware of no such holiday
for atheists, just when might that be, your honor?"

The judge said, "Well it comes every year on exactly the same
date - April 1st!"

The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."
Psalm 14:1, Psalm 53:1
