    Can you believe this!!!?? Well he's gonna be well pis*ed when Santa delivers him F-all on Christmas day for being a total cretin!!

    But my favourite sentance from the article has to be

    "reindeer would burst into flames if they had to travel at the speeds necessary."
    heh heh heh!!!

    And there is a difference in saying Santa is dead and saying Santa doesn't exist.... :rolleyes:

    that is a shame, especially for the kids who were hanging on to the beleif, but I imagine that they all might get an extra gift or two just because from their parents.

    That was very cruel though....... the bit about the Reindeer bursting into flames at high speed just totally cracks me up though!!

    well if they're magical and fly, what's to prevent them from magically protecting themselves from friction?

    That's what I want - frictionless reindeer! :D

    A friend of mine that I sent the article wrote back.

    If Santa is dead or doesn't exist who's to say God isn't dead or doesn't exist.

    yes rather strange that a reverend would describe how it is physically impossible for santa to exist... ahum... what about that go you hold so dear mr reverend.

    regardless of whether it is appropriate to tell children the truth, i am just wondering why he felt he needed to discuss santa's existence during a sermon.

    if we used christmas for christ, maybe the road rage and mad grab for consumer goods would stop

    but for the sake of mad consumerism and the fortune 500, it is good for them that so many youngsters believe in santa claus and the whole gift giving thing

    how about realizing the gift that christ gave to the world by being born on this crazy planet?

    let the gift giving season be spread out over the year instead of the super high stress time of year which already has back to school in sept, halloween in oct, thanksgiving in nov, the flu, and the superbowl just a month after chirstmas al crammed into its months

    this time of year is too busy...i don't see any harm in finally retiring santa claus:p

    maybe its just me, but maybe we should stop setting up our kids for disappointments like this by stop lying to them! santa claus does not bring the christmas gifts to your children you do, so take some credit for your hard work, santa is also not the one behind all the needy kids getting presents from toys from tots and similar charities, its the hard working volunteers and the good hearted individuals who donate. I could be wrong though.....


    *edit, before I get flamed I think I should explain that I wasnt being very serious here.....that rev. should have handled the situation with more care.

    ha, that one's been around before.

    and maroon is in reference to BugsBunny (at least for me) and older saying of sorts.

    Macbandit, love the tar.

    Hmmm, isn't Santa Claus based on St. Nicolaus (or something like that)? He is dead as far as I know, and if he's not, the Catholic Church has done a great job hiding him (at the North Pole maybe?) Maybe that's why the pope wears white... North Pole camo?
