Suddenly! (they believe) Evil Santa has given them exactly what they have been asking-for for Christmas, over the past 50 years.
And therefore, they infer, Evil Santa must have secretly repented and become good.
Thus, since Evil Santa is so powerful, they dare to be optimistic that this means a better world has just begun...
On the contrary; I believe that Evil Santa is still just as evil (or more so) as he was a couple of months ago.
And therefore when ES gives us a surprise special present, a Gift Horse; this is not done for good reasons, nor with good intent.
Evil Santa's present will turn-out to contain a booby-trap.
Christians need to recognize that this is a booby-trap, not a Gift Horse. That Santa is still Evil and has not covertly changed sides. That there is no realistic prospect of us being-saved by a benign top-down power from within the Establishment.
And act accordingly.
