Who is the real Santa Claus?

Timothy Kincaid

December 25th, 2010

In 1947 Christmas classic Miracle on 34th Street, an elderly store Santa declares that he is Kris Kringle, the real Santa Clause. Seeing something special in Kris, attorney Fred Gailey seeks to keep him from being declared mentally incompetent and a menace to society by proving in court that he truly is Santa Claus. And in the process he finds an authority to which to appeal to make his case: the US Post Office.

Again this year the US Post Office has somehow found Santa Claus alive and well in New York City. The Times tells us how.

I KNEW there had to be a gay elf or two. Do we know if Santa has DP benefits or have the elves in the north pole been given full equality?

Those evil gays are at it again. This is clearly part of their agenda to destroy all things good.

It’s Santa Claus, not “Clause,” unless you’re thinking of the Tim Allen vehicle.

Santa Clause is a Nick-name for the Commerce Clause and/or the Postal Clause of the U.S. Constitution. While the Postal Clause facilitated the delivery of all those letters to Jim & Dylan’s address on 22nd Street in NYC, the full Commerce Clause enables the regulation of the massive commerce, communications, and transportation complexities involved in Santa Claus’ interstate delivery of all that merchandise on Christmas Eve.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
