Not even Saint Nicholas of Myra in 300 A.D. is safe from attack on all things heterosexual white male these days.

The legendary (yet documented) generosity of Saint Nicholas, a.k.a. Santa Claus, is carried on in spirit by Christians who emulate his kindness and willingness to share on every Christmas.

Now, many of the atheist, antagonists and haters of Christianity wish to turn their crosshairs to the tradition Christians have maintained for many centuries, teaching their children about this wonderful servant of God who miraculously passes out gifts to children everywhere over the night of Christmas Eve.

Some of these imbeciles want to evolve Santa Claus to a gender-neutral character!

Leave us alone! He—that's right, HE, is ours. You are welcome to join us, but not welcomed to morph who he was for your own agenda. Christians have maintained a wonderful tradition, introducing their children to a part of the faith whose adults even believe that good behavior is rewarded. It is seen even when it isn't seen by others around you. Adults are rewarded in Paradise in the next life. Children are shown this concept by celebrating the birth of their Savior and rewarded for doing his deeds here with a "magical paradise" on Christmas morning. Why attack this?

Christianity is under assault, and really has been since Christ physically entered this world to reclaim territory lost to the enemy. He paid the heaviest price known to history with his messy death and nearly all of his closest followers met with similar, cruel fates at the hands of the haters.

Christians have been fed to the lions at the hands of the non-believers in the first few hundred years. Others crucified or just stabbed or stoned to death on the spot.

Today, the assault is different, believed here to be driven by the same master as in centuries past. Society is far more squeamish today, so the whole crucifixions and stonings of Christians have almost gone away—but there is still some of that in Islamic-controlled areas.

Okay, let me climb out of that rabbit hole. Back to Santa. HE'S A DUDE! He was a real, early church bishop and exclusively of the male persuasion. Billions and billions of people over 1,000 years plus never had a problem with this, until whacko leftists have become so bored and wish to be relevant somehow, some way to someone.

Stop hating, get a life, grow up and if you want to really do some good, go and really help someone.

I'll tell you what: what do you think happens should you tell Muslims that their prophet Mohammed is gender neutral, and if you do and are alive in six months, let me know how that went.
