Jack Chick strikes again

Jack Chick just came out with a new tract, “Fairy Tales?”. (And there was much rejoicing. At least among those of us who consider Chick to be great entertainment.)

This one is fairly bizarre even by Chick standards. One of the morals of the story seems to be that you should not tell kids about Santa Claus, because when they inevitably find out that it’s a fairy tale, they will

  1. become violent sociopaths;
  2. renounce religion and risk their eternal soul.

Interestingly, Chick seems to present his precious Son of God as pretty much on the same level as Santa Claus as far as evidence is concerned. Both, after all, are characaters in stories people tell, but no more. Confusing.
