Who doesn’t like to have their Christmas cheer with a heavy dose of social justice?
To prove that radicals have to warp literally every last thing to their agenda, a new children’s book is coming out that re-tools the Santa Claus story for the militant LGBT set. Now Santa will be a black, gay man with a jolly, fat white man as his subordinate “husband.”
An arm of the Harper-Collins book publishing company will soon be releasing a book entitled, “Santa’s Husband,” the Blaze reports.
It tells the story of a black Santa who lives with his white “husband” at the North Pole.

The kiddie picture book was created by Daniel Kibblesmith, a writer for the left-wing CBS show, “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” It all started with a quick tweet he posted last year as a joke where he insisted that his own child would only know Santa as a black man with a white “husband.”
Me & @JenAshleyWright have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa. If they see a white one we'll say "That's his husband"

This latest liberal attack on the tradition of Santa is proof that nothing is “off limits” among activists wrote Denny Burk, a professor of biblical studies at Boyce College.
“I guess we already knew that no area would be off-limits in the cultural revolution before us, but this one is still quite sad,” Burk wrote on his personal website.
There was a lot of reaction to this project on Twitter.
Naturally there was a lot of outrage about the deconstruction of the Santa story.
Why? Seriously why? There is absolutly no need for this, none. Why do people have to alter traditional images? Why?

This is so unnecessary. Sometimes you can go where is just unnecessary. We get it.

But others thought this was a sexist attack against women, especially “full figured” women. Proving once again, in the divisive world of the Left, you can never please everyone.
way to go. Another slap in the face to full figured older women, replace her with a man. #norespectforwomenover40
