In Abuja, An Atheist (one who believes there is no God) brought up a case against the upcoming Christmas Holiday.
He hired a Lawyer to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Muslims concerning observation of their Holy Days. The argument was that it was unfair that Atheists had no such recognised days.
The case was brought before (The Judge) Akpos. After listening to the passionate presentation by the Lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel declaring; “Case Dismissed”.
The Lawyer quickly stood up, objecting to the ruling and said; Your honour, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and Others. The Muslims have Id-el-kabir, Id-el-fitri and Others. But my client and other Atheists have no such holidays.
(The Judge) Akpos leaned forward in his chair and said; Your client and other Atheists have. Is just that your client is woefully ignorant. The Lawyer said; Your honour, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for Atheists. (The Judge) Akpos said; The Calendar says April 1st
is April Fools day. Psalm 14 verse 1 says, The fool says in his heart, there is no God.
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.
