"Santa vs. Jesus," a Christmas board game developed by Komo Games, has received criticism for supposedly pitting Jesus Christ and Santa Claus against each other in a "blasphemous" manner. The game divides players into two teams (Team Jesus and Team Santa) and pits them against each other in various challenges to win the most "believers."
One Amazon reviewer wrote, "I find it in the poorest of taste and offensive. Jesus (complete with nail holes in hands) and Santa with his followers and friends fighting over a Christmas tree. How upsetting, cheap and nasty to corrupt the beauty and meaning of Christmas in this way."
Danny Webster, spokesperson for the Evangelical Alliance, said while the board game will help people focus more on Jesus on Christmas, it is also problematic because it supposedly "trivialises Christian belief" and depicts both Christ and Santa Claus "as fictional characters."
What?!!! Santa is not real? In the old days we would have known exactly what to do with such blasphemers. Where's the Spanish Inquisition when you need it?
