In remarks for Christmas before the Roman Curia, Pope Francis delivered a scathing review of the behavior of Vatican officials, decrying the “spiritual Alzheimers” that makes them forget their real purpose. Gwen Ifill talks to Kevin Eckstrom of the Religion News Service about the pope’s latest effort at spurring reform in the Catholic church.
Santa is a nickname for the ever beloved St. Nicolas. There really was a man called Saint Nicholas, (also called the Bishop of Maria) who died on December 6, 343 AD. Mr. Nick was famous for giving gifts to people in need.
Santa actually comes from a mispronunciation of St. Nicolas, ‘santinicolas’. The RCC honors him as a “saint”.
Ever since then, Santa Claus has been his name. The red hat and suit very from country to country. In fact, until CocaCola
used him as an advertising tool, Santa wore green!
Santa is a form of the ancient god—Molekh.
Some sources say that Molekh is also called Chemrosh,
which is where we get the word chimney. Molekh is a god of a particular human sacrifice. Worshippers of Molekh placed infants in a potbellied stove that resembled the enthroned Molekh, and asked their god for presents for the upcoming year. The stove would be heated so hot that it would turn red. In modern day society, every year around Christmas, parents place their children in the lap of a red, potbellied god, to ask for presents.
As if Santa’s wizard hat was not enough, God mentioned this evil personage in the laws of the Bible in Leviticus 18:21, and 20:2. Enjoy!!! Be AWARE and be PREPARED, FEAR is not an option. Be safe everyone…
