After all, kids get told about Santa Claus, don't they? But there isn't a movement that is trying to get Santa Claus taught as fact in public schools. When I am channel-hopping I don't find rabble-rousers like Jerry Falwel, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh and others preaching the evils of not believing in Santa. CBS doesn't broadcast prime-time documentaries trying to show that the sleigh has been found at the north pole. Unfortunately, they can't just be laughed off. They form a powerful political lobby that is close to taking over the party that may well provide the next President. I haven't had otherwise intelligent, mature adults knocking at my door and calling me closed-mind/ignorant/evil for questioning how Santa Claus manages to carry so many hundred million presents in a single sleigh, or how one santa can deliver to so many households in a single night......
