Atheist Holy Day

Rev. Jack Preston
Basin-Hyattville United Methodist Churches

I know God is giggling!


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 that knows his scripture!

    This morning I was reading through blogs under the topic of Christianity and Religion, just to see what other Christians or no-Christians out there are talking about. This one made me laugh. An Atheist Holy Day? Ok, seriously?

    In Jesus Name. Amen.

    • You sound like a devout atheist to me. Liberal judges have done much worse and didn’t get impeached. I think it is very clever and exceedingly funny. Different points of view, different results.

      • Devout atheist? How is one a ‘devout’ atheist?

        Liberal judges have done horrible things like uphold the Constitution. We should clearly get rid of them.

      • Devout definition – earnest or sincere.

        Like the liberal judges that want to make laws rather than let the Congress do it? Many liberal judges could care less about the separation of powers and rule on their ideologies. Granted some conservatives rule the same way but very few try to legislate from the bench.
