I love you, Fark

(My Fox DC) Archbishop tells parishioners that there is no imaginary man who comes down from the sky, who can see everything you do, and who knows if you have been bad or good (myfoxdc.com)

    Totally stumped me. The Archbishop was talking about Santa Claus!!! 😛

    It never fails to shock me how someone well-trained (supposedly) in Church History shouldn’t understand that Christmas was chosen to coincide with Yule (or other winter pagan festivals) in order to more easily accommodate and convert the “locals” to Christianity.

    There’s no harm in that — it’s YOUR (not yours, L) history. I know that you learned it some time before becoming an Archbishop.

    The point about gifts coming from parents (with the help of baby Bejeebers) is fine, if that’s what you want to pass along but don’t have a shit-fit about the fat guy in red cos that actually DOES belong to this time of year. The Christ-child’s birth doesn’t — it was Marketing 101.

    Good ol’ ArchB is illustrating the irony of being a “true believer” and it’s freakin’ HILARIOUS!

    Poor Santa just can’t win. He’s too religious for the atheists, and too secular for the Christians. 😦

  6. Fark is one of my regular reads, yes.

    Archbishop needs a sanity clause.

    There’s just been a priest/church in Denmark who decided the whole santa thing was devil worshipping… so they lynched a santa-doll and hung him from the church wall…. much to the distress of the neighborhoods children.
    the sign around his neck says “we forsake the devil and all his deeds and all his being”
    (sorries Iz not so good at bible speak in English, but you can prolly guess what it would be if I knew it)
    Some people take their Baby Bejeebers stories WAYY too seriously.. oh and the pro-santa people in the community then sent death threats to the priest… so some people take their santa stories wayyy too seriously too.

    OMG, did the parishoner also tell his parish to ban Christmas trees from the house? Then at least the real forest will be safe from *%&^ tree farms. The irony of how these ignoramuses destroy the environment and then pat themselves on the back for making the world a better place, it boggles the mind, L!

      My mind has been boggled over and over again for decades. There is no depth to which human stupidity has not plummeted.

    • Drude says:

      Denmark is nearly wall to wall christmas-tree plantations… so I really wish they would ban those.. Not that they’re replacing any real forests.. we chopped those down centuries ago – but because the xmastrees are not edible, there is hardly any regulation of the amount of pesticides you can pour out on them…. and an insect-nibbled, brown spotted christmas tree won’t sell, so they REALLY go all out on the poisons in those plantations…. Our ground water is full of those pesticides… and our wildlife has suffered for decades.

    it is a delightful coincidence (OR IS IT?) that Fark rhymes with snark.
