Holiday for Atheists

Post by Racist Infidel » Mon May 15, 2017 5:53 pm

Likely a joke but funny.

HOLY DAY SET BY FLORIDA COURT
This is great!! I know God is giggling!


A Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day!
Gotta love this Judge!

A proper decision by the courts.....for a change.

A FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY;

In Florida, an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and 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 and 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, counselor, 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 Fool's 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 who knows his Scripture!

I thought the non-believer day was Festivus?

Nope, Festivus is for the rest of us, not just atheists. Anyone who doesn't want to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever, who thinks they are grossly overblown, commercialized, whatever.
The Festivus dinner starts with the "Airing of the Grievances" and goes downhill from there.

Celebrating a holiday created by the creator of Seinfeld and made popular by the tv show [smilie=011.gif] now that's funny

I hate how commercialized Christmas has become

Makes as much sense to me as anything else. At least, it doesn't celebrate single moms or the slaughter of the first-born.
