Curious proposal

In the spirit of religious dialogue, I present to you a direct quote, found in the comments to a post about religion by the SandMonkey. Read the original story here.

".. I suggested to my atheist friends that maybe they should worship Santa. It's easier than worshipping God, 'cause Santa will hand you gifts at a specific day via his followers and will only demand milk and cookies in return, and that's only once a year. And you still get the magical male daddy figure who lives in an unreachable remote location that watches you and knows who is good and who is bad on top of the gifts, so you don't feel alone. For a belief system, Santaism sounds good, u know?"

[KEVIN'S NOTE: Santaism is only an anagram-switch away from Satanism.]

Re: Kevin's note...

Reminds me of that Dana Carvey SNL skit, re: The Church Lady acknowledging that S-A-T-A-N is in S-A-N-T-A.

This also begs the question, "You mean folks don't worship him & all that commercialism already?"

Did you see Bruce Willis's "The Last Boy Scout"? Satan Claus makes an appearance there.
