    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."

    It's amazing how different folks can operate from such amazingly different paradigms.

    Perhaps this belongs in the religious issues forum.

    It's a joke. If you don't like it, get thicker skin. I personally like a good joke even if it pokes fun at me...
