I'm currently reading this book, "God is Not Great, how religion poisons everything" by Christopher Hitchens and when I read that article yesterday I was all, "And there's yet ANOTHER reason why religion sucks". Not surprising since you have to have a pretty skewed view of the world to believe in Santa/Jesus to begin with, but I just shake my head that they don't see the irony of their views. Wasn't their saviour tortured? Didn't he preach forgiveness, love they neighbour and turn the other cheek? Silly me for thinking that people who base their lives around a particular religion might actually follow it's tenets. That's the religious masses for you!
