The Case for the Atheist.......JOKE

The Case for the Atheist


In Florida , an atheist created a case against the upcoming 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 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 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, 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.

If atheists don't believe in God, why would they take anyone to court??? Since, didn't Jehovah put the judicial system here on earth??? How would an atheist believe in the judicial system???

In the case of the joke, the scene is unrealistic.

Atheists are busy in the court systems all the time however, trying to push evolution, squash intelligent design, remove "under God" from the US Pledge of Allegiance, and rid prayer from schools.

For example....






A federal court ruled Tuesday that the city of Starke, Fla. violated the

federal and state constitutions by placing and maintaining a metal

Christian cross on top of a municipal water tower.

A resident of the town, aided by American Atheists and represented by

attorney Frank Shooster, challenged the display which had been erected

over 30 years ago at the behest of local officials, and was illuminated

at night. The cross was also periodically maintained at public expense.

U.S. District Court Judge John H. Moore, II found for the plaintiffs,

and dismissed several arguments devised by the City. Citing earlier

legal precedents, the judge noted that the cross was "indistinguishable

from the ubiquitous crosses found on any number of churches within the

State of Florida and across the country symbolizing Christianity." He

added in his written opinion:

"The display of the Cross on the water tower has the unconstitutional

effect of advancing, affirming, or otherwise validating Christianity ...

To the objective observer, the combination of the words 'STARKE' and the

Cross on the water tower clearly communicates the City's endorsement of


Edwin Kagin, National Legal Director for American Atheists, hailed the

ruling as a "great victory for the First Amendment separation of church

and state."

"No government, whether federal, local or state, should be promoting

sectarian religion and using public money to build and maintain

religious displays," Kagin added.

The City of Starke, Fla. removed the cross prior to today's finding.

Judge Moore said that his ruling of Summary Judgment was necessary to

prevent the town government "at some point in the future" from

re-erecting the unconstitutional Christian cross on public property.

"Let's hope that city officials comply with the District Court and not

try an 'end run' around the First Amendment," said Mr. Kagin. "If they

do, we'll be ready to fight this case again."

AMERICAN ATHEISTS is a nationwide movement that defends civil rights for

Atheists; works for the total separation of church and state; and

addresses issues of First Amendment public policy.

Of course, we could care less about any rulings regarding a cross, and we're gonna practice the true religion no matter what the governments do. This is to be expected and eventually builds towards the destruction of Babylon the Great, so bring it on!

And an agnostic is just a fancy word for an atheist:

“An agnostic is a man who thinks that it is impossible to know the truth in the matters such as God and a future life with which the Christian religion and other religions are concerned. Or, if not for ever impossible, at any rate impossible at present.”—PHILOSOPHER BERTRAND RUSSELL, 1953.

THE man who coined the term “agnostic” was a zoologist by the name of Thomas Huxley. Born in 1825, Huxley was a contemporary of Charles Darwin and a champion of the teaching of evolution. In 1863, Huxley wrote that he could see no evidence that there was a God who “loves us and cares for us as Christianity asserts.”

We called on a woman on the ministry that said she was busy making a Christmas cake. The brother told her he wouldn't keep her long, but would she like the mags to read later? She rambled on a bit about religion in general, then told us she was an atheist. Her hands were still covered in cake mix for the Christmas cake she was in the middle of making. Does anyone else see a flaw in her argument, or is it just me? :deadhorse::S

How ironic ! My Father hates the truth with a passion, beyond atheism. I've invited him to the hall, and sarcastically comments that they should burn it down!

He looks like a biker with a full beard and long white hair, but around Christmas time he puts on the red suspenders, large black boots, huge beer belly and loves the attention. He was offered a position to ride on the Budweiser float during the parade with the Seattle Sea Hawk cheerleaders, dressed as Santa Claus. :devil2:
