First, this bit from P.J. O’Rourke:
To put it briefly: God is a Conservative, and Santa Claus is a liberal.
Think about it; it’s really very simple. God is an elderly or at any rate middle aged male – a stern fellow, patriarchal rather than paternal, a great believer in duties and rules. He has little apparent concern for the material well-being of the disadvantaged. He is politically connected, socially powerful, and He holds the mortgage on literally everything in the world. God is difficult. God is unsentimental. And it is very difficult to get into God’s Heavenly Country Club.
Santa Claus is another matter entirely. He’s cute, he’s non-threatening, he’s always upbeat and positive. He loves animals. He may know who’s been naughty and nice but he never does anything about it. He gives everyone everything that they want without thought of quid pro quo. He works hard for charities, and he’s famously generous to the poor.
Santa Claus gives us a better deal than God in every way except one: there is no such thing as Santa Claus.
