All fundies are stoopid.
Not all stoopids are fundies.

This one sounds more like non-fundie stoopid.

And you warn your children about getting presents from strange men, I suppose.

At least he isn't saying that Santa is Satan...

Question: Why do atheists always compare belief in Jesus with Santa Claus?

Both are imaginary friends who serve no real purpose other than to give people warm fuzzies and distract them from all of the tons of suck in their life?

Did you answer your own question there? I don't get your "logic" so that might seem a-ok to you.

Answer: Neither Jesus nor Santa Claus has been prooven to exist. Both are pictured as rather jolly buggers, and both have been attached to the old pagan sacrifice at the winter solstice.

Now, you really don't need me to answer this, do you?? Well, here goes:

Because they're both imaginary characters, who doesn't exist.

Oh, btw, Santa Claus actually does exists, in some form. At least there's someone picking up the mail and responding to it at Korvatunturi, near the Arctic Circle here in Finland.

Someone skipped not just history, but religion classes too, I see.

It's a Poe. Has to be.

Jesus and Santa Claus are similar.

1. They are both legends based on men who may or may not have existed.
2. Both are magic men.
3. People lie to children and say that both of them exist.

Is this an attempt at humor? Lame!

Here's how it's done, H.S.!

Jesus walks into a motel. He gives the manager three nails and says "Can you put me up for the night?"

Santa Claus, Snow White and Pinocchio are all having an argument. "I'm the most generous person in the world!" boasts Santa. "No you're not!" the other two say. "I'm the most beautiful person in the world!" boasts Snow White. "No you're not!" the other two say. "I'm the biggest liar in the world!" boasts Pinocchio. "No you're not!" the others protest. Finally, they decide to take their statement to omnipotent Jesus Christ himself. After less than a minute alone with him, Santa says "I am the most generous person in the world! Jesus said so!" After less than a minute alone with Jesus, Snow White says "I am the most beautiful person in the world! Jesus said so!" Pinocchio takes his turn. After nearly an hour he storms out and says "Who the fuck is Glenn Beck?"

Ever wonder why there's an angel on top of the Christmas tree?
One Christmas Eve, Santa's having a bad day! The elves are on strike, the reindeer got drunk on eggnog and wrecked the sleigh, Mrs. Claus is nagging him about being away for the holidays and what's more, the Christmas Angel he sent out to get a tree wasn't back yet. Then there's a knock on the door. It's the Christmas Angel dragging a fir behind him. "Here's your tree, Fatso!" he says. "Where should I stick it?"

Thank you for not saying that Santa is the secular menace. That said, FAIL.

We're comparing the legitamacy of the BELIEF of both, not the characters themselves, we also use Zeus, Odin, any literary character that is magical at all.
You apparently believe Santa actually existed over 1500 years before he was created yourself according to your second sentence.

Brilliant Poe!
