Where Do You Rate On The Fool Meter?

 

This may be a bit of a sensitive subject for fools, but there is still hope for fools to recover from their foolishness.  What is a fool?  A fool is someone who is easily deceived into believing something that is to his disadvantage, and to someone else’s advantage.  A fool is someone who hurts them self willingly through ignorant or rebellious thinking and/or actions.  If ignorant, then of course the fool does not realize that he’s hurting himself.  Of course, the fool often blames the hurt on others having inflicted it upon him.

There is a story of a man who went to court.  He was an atheist, and filed suit against the local government for displaying a creche (Nativity Scene) at Christmas time on government property.  His complaint was that there was no holiday celebration for atheists, and therefore, the government was discriminating against him and his kind.

The judge dismissed his suit with the following comment.  His honor, the judge, looked into a legal reference book, and began his comment; “You are incorrect sir; you do have a holiday.”  The plaintiff looked a bit surprised and asked; “What day is that?”

The judge began to read; “The ‘fool’ has said in his heart, there is no God (Psalm 14:1). Therefore,” he declared to the plaintiff, “you do have a holiday.”  The plaintiff looked at the judge inquisitively and somewhat dumbfounded.  The judge continued; “Yes, your holiday comes once a year – April 1st which is April Fool’s Day.”  The plaintiff hung his head and left the court a defeated man.
