117. 'Santa' is a supernatural being who rewards the good
and who is derived from a Christian saint. Why is comparing God to Santa 'name calling because they have nothing else'?

"religious people do have the right to be treated in a more respectful manner here in these forums. "

Ah, now you've mentioned a more appropriate word for what's going on here - 'respect'. How much respect do ideas have rights to? Can ideas have 'rights' at all? Or are you saying that people have the right to not have any of their ideas mocked? My great great grandfather wrote a book, just over 100 years ago, saying the earth is flat. He really believed that. Do you think he had a right for the book not to be mocked?
