Atheist's holiday? – JAM

This is Just-a-minute with Ed Boggess. How about this headline: “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 Christian and Jew observance 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!” When the lawyer objected, the judge declared that there was already an atheist holiday: “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 your client already has April 1st as a holiday.”
