Florida Agents or Brokers: Did this happen?

I laughed when I read this.  Sounds like someone in the courts is still a little conservative.  Even if it isn't a true case, I thought it might cause a few more smiles.

A Florida judge has set a holiday for atheists.  Here is what happened.

An atheist created a case against the Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that the holidays are unfair because atheists had no such recognized days.

The case got into court and before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood, 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 have such a day. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."

The lawyer replied, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."

 The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools 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!" 

Happy Selling and Listing!

I did not read the article/paper but it certainly sounds like the #*# you would hear about in Fl. I just don't know why a lawyer would have taken this on and the judge certainly handled it properly!

God bless that judge.

I didn't like where that story was going.

I am still bewildered as to why atheists are so adamant about erasing God from our society.

Heath,

This is a very interesting story.  I am finding it hard to believe this could be true and that such a case would make it to the courts but I like the twisted ending.

Hi Heath - that's a great read, and if only it really were true.... April Fool's Day - I'll be looking at that day differently from now on!

Thanks for the chuckle!
