FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY


In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Upcoming Easter and Passover days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, 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!" (Word vervolg...)

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the Ruling , "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, counsel, 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 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.

Hehehehe...dit sal nogal 'n lekker busslagspreuk uitmaak....

Die Britse Busdienste behoort op elke 'Dawkins Bus' se stertkant die woorde BUS OF FOOLS aan te bring...(met verwysing na die satire van die Duitse teoloog Sebastian Brant - Ship of Fools 1494).
(The allegory depicts a vessel populated by human inhabitants who are passengers aboard a ship without a pilot, and seemingly ignorant of their own direction...)

BUS OF FOOLS - skitterend Liza !

Dan moet hulle net Brant se allegorie verder voer en geen busbestuurder óf reisplan verskaf nie - hehehe!

Óns weet darem wat hulle bestemming is - tensy sommige vir een of ander rede besluit om van daardie bus af te klim.
