    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!"
