    Oh yea, the song is "Amazing Grace". And it is amazing that religionists firmly believe that a god would who would curse all humans to be "sinners" would then "save" them from himself?

    Yes, I believe there is a very strong correlation between 'god' and Santa! In fact, the two are barely distinguishable. I think the old "gods" evolved into the Santa figure because of the evolution of the minds of mankind.

    This is the truth about religion. They need it to be true to justify their judgmental attitude toward life. You summed up my point very well.
