  1. Countless numbers persecuted and killed in his name?

    I think Santa is a more positive fiction, although the elves remain to be unionized.

  2. In regards to people being killed in the name of God:

  3. The gist of Ted’s response is: Well, yeah, people have been killed in God’s name — but it’s not really all that many when you look at the statistics.
