BRIAN Sutton tells us (Coastal Times, January 6) that Jesus is the reason for the season, but people put Santa centre stage.
Well, we all know Santa is just make-believe and as for Jesus there is no actual evidence that he ever existed.
Even the famed Shroud of Turin has been debunked as a fake so why differentiate between the two.
Jesus is mentioned in the Christian Bible, but that is just a book of stories and has been rewritten four times.
Brian then encourages us to do as some Muslims do.
Do you really want us to take the path back to the stoning of adulterers and chopping off hands for theft?
Brian, you should have a good think and do some research before you put pen to paper.
