Published in Defending Santa

santa1.jpgDo you trust this guy? Think you know him? Do you even like him?

Many do not.

And on the surface their reasons for disdain of this man and the image of him are sound. He has sadly become a pathetic figurehead in a season now hallmarked by excesses. He is used to sell wares from an endless variety of industries. He seemingly endorses countless services and dubious habits.

Some harbor profound bitterness against him. As adults, they shun him because as children he deceived them. He has become the butt of jokes. Popular culture often depicts him in films and in song as a threatening buffoon incapable of even the most basic courtesies.

He openly espouses poor nutritional habits, he keeps an army of vertically-challenged individuals enslaved at a fictional place at the top of the world and he can be seen on nearly every corner during the holiday season holding his hand out for money.

Everyone recognizes him and knows his image well. But by only the very naïve is he loved or thought of kindly.

The truth is that he is none of these things.

He is, in fact and in reality, a good man. A man devoted to the service of others and once revered by millions as the patron saint of children. In his time more than 2000 churches in the lands of Europe and what was known as Asia Minor bore his name in reverence and appreciation for his life and his deeds. His popularity was so widespread that dozens of cultures still celebrate his exploits for good.

This is the man we defend. This is the man we call Santa Claus.
