'Why Jesus is Better than Santa Claus' raises ire
IRASBURG, Vt. -- Parents in Irasburg said a teacher crossed the line between church and state when he gave out a handout entitled "Why Jesus is Better than Santa Claus."

Parents also said that the handout is reflective of a pattern of religious-themed material being given by language arts teacher Wally Rogers.

Mel Downs, the father of a seventh-grader at Irasburg Village School, said Rogers has the Ten Commandments on a classroom wall and religious-themed books on the shelves. Downs said he contacted the American Civil Liberties Union, which sent a letter to the school's superintendent. ...

The original article isn't there anymore, but this one by John MacArthur should more than be able to replace it❗

John MacArthur wrote:
Put simply, Santa is a fictional heavenly being of questionable character—he doesn’t tell the truth, makes empty threats, demands good works, rewards the disobedient, and only shows up once a year. Those traits fall far short of the true God who only speaks truth, keeps all His promises, judges those who reject Him, gives salvation by grace through faith and not by works, and is always present.

One of the saddest ironies about Christmas is that many think of Christ, not Santa Claus, as an unwelcome intruder. Not only does Santa’s long and dark shadow obscure the true message of Christmas, even the familiar nativity scene freezes time and locks in many minds the image of Christ as a helpless newborn, and nothing more.

Jesus is way better than Santa because Jesus loves every child and offers salvation to everyone, Santa just loves rich kids... at least he gives more to rich kids than poor kids

'Why Jesus is Better than Santa Claus'?

Uh...well...for one thing, JESUS is a
REAL PERSON.

Is this a trick question?

Then again, the truely reprobate would
almost certainly prefer to believe just
the opposite.

Afterall, the worst thing Santa can do
is deprive you of gifts and blessing
while Christ can send you to Hell
forever.
