I wish we had more judges like this one!

I wish we had more judges like this one!

Have you heard about this case?
Great answer from the judge!
In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter
and Passover holidays .. He decided to contact his lawyer
about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant
celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their
holidays while atheists had no holiday to celebrate. The case
was brought before a judge. After listening to the long
passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his
gavel and declared, 'Case dismissed!' The lawyer
immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, 'Your
honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The
Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other
observances. Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and
Hanukkah ... 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 even know
about, much less celebrate his own atheists' holiday!' The
lawyer pompously said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any
such holiday for atheists Just when might that holiday be,
your Honor?' The judge said, 'Well it comes every year on
exactly the same date---April 1st! Since our calendar sets
April 1st as 'April Fools Day,' consider that Psalm 14:1
states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, in
my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by
scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now have
a good day and get out of my courtroom!!

This was sent to me in an email a few years back. I do not know who wrote it. ;o)
