Atheists only in Santa’s grotto? – UPDATED

By johnboy - 30 October 2006 61

Over on The Concatenate I’ve got a cutting from Westfield Belconnen’s “centre news update” in which the mall makes clear that it only wants atheists to be Santa’s elves.

We wouldn’t want faith intruding on the shopping frenzy now would we?

UPDATED: Over at The Concatenate I now have the correction published by Westfield and I draw your attention to it in the interests of fairness.

What’s Your opinion?

There’s nothing worse than enthusiastic elves getting under your feet when Christmas shopping. I’d rather have atheistic ones, they tend to keep their distance. They also give Santa a hard time too, usually by ripping off his beard when he’s in full Ho-ho-ho mode. Great entertainment.
