    St. Nicholas: About AD 260 there was born a certain man named Nicholas who became well known for his generosity and his love of children. Raised in the city of Patara on the coast of what is now Turkey, Nicholas traveled to Palestine as a young man. He later became bishop of the nearby town of Myra. When Emperor Diocletian focused on persecuting Christians, Nicholas was tortured and imprisoned for his faith in Christ. According to tradition, Nicholas was released by Emperor Constantine and later attended the First Council of Nicea in AD 325. Stories of Nicholas' generosity and kindness continued to spread long after his death. During the Middle Ages, Nicholas became patron saint of charitable fraternities and children, and legends sprouted about his feats of good will. After the Reformation, the legend of St. Nicholas died out everywhere except in Holland. When the Dutch Reformed Christians immigrated to the United States, they brought the traditions of "Sinterklaas" with them. St. Nicholas still rides into Dutch towns every November, dressed in his bishop's garb. Later in Germany, St. Nicholas would traditionally arrive on his Feast Day, December 6 th . A man dressed as St. Nick would go door to door loaded with a giant sack. He gave presents to those children who had been good during the year, but a lump of coal was the lot of bad children. The visual image and personality of St. Nicholas changed during the years. His red outfit was derived from the red colors bishops wore, but he was often portrayed as tall and thin. The modern version of St. Nick as a plump cheery man originated in a series of Thomas Nast engravings in Harper'' Weekly during and after the American Civil War

    St. Nicolas was a Black Russian who did some of the things described above minus the red suit.

    the Pagans and Anglos in that land stole this simple idea and threw a red suit on a fat white man instead and added the pagan inspired tree of Nimrod and the mistletoe of kissing men to it also, then as the knife in the cake, they use Yeshua's name on it and call it his day of birth, thus bastardizing what was just a simple gesture by one man during the winter.



    Fuck that failure Satan Claws.

    Do you believe this propaganda ?

    Santa (rearranged = satan) is created to take out Christ from life, and to water him down. It's all about satan (SANTA) now. No more no less. Also the world does not know Christ's birth, nor does it matter.

    Christmas is a Catholic creation, and serves in disguise for their pagan queen of heaven rituals. It has nothing to do with King Jesus. The 25th of December is important to the occult pagan Catholics and other secret societies who worship the devil. This is the truth. And this is why "christmas" is on the 25th.

    Christmas is Saturnalia. A pagan holiday used to worship the father of Jupiter: Saturn. It was on december 25th. Pagans do not worship the devil. The Devil does not even exist, in the sense that Christians think he does. The Bible gives all metaphorical descriptions of the devil and sometiems uses names like Baal & Beelzebub to reference him but those are Pagan god names. The Carthiginians worshipped a god named Baal. Satan itself means advesary.

    It seems to me like the Bible is telling you to stay away from false gods, not the man who lives in the firey depths. So, to worship Baal or any of those names of Satan does not make you devil worshipper, but more like a Muslim or Hindu or Mormon.

    Christmas was put on the same day as Saturnalia so that the Christians could still celebrate the same time as the Pagans did to pull people closer together in Rome. Jesus' divinity, the date of Christmas, the date of Easter, and all that good stuff was decided at the Council of Nicea by a bunch of angry men.

    Santa has nothing to do with devil worshipping as many would think. But, if you unberstand that the Bible is saying don't worship false idols and you really believe what the Bible is saying then technically you could be a satan worshipper. But, striving for presents from anyone, or striving to make it to the top in wall street, or striving to get promotions and horde all the money for yourself would make you a Satan worshipper as well.

    Moreover, I watched the show "Santa Buddies" as the end all the kids were praying before they went to bed, and they were asking SANTA for presents. LOL I screamed out "BLASPHEMY!" And, my wife told me to shut up, and let the kids be innocent.

    thats because in his mind the two cannot be seperated. a marriage cant be morally and legally ''right'' unless it involves some form of child molestation.
