Today we celebrate the fathers of the first ecumenical council
Y'see, this guy named Arius started insisting that Jesus wasn't divine at all, ignoring the entire problem of "bridging the gap between a divine, perfect God and mortal, imperfect humans" and how Jesus being fully God and fully man totally does that. Constantine finally got fed up and called up the church fathers for a meeting. It ended in the Nicaean creed and Saint Nicholas slapping Arius. The only picture I could find to represent this confrontation is from a Superman comic book.
Look, I'm not saying that Superman looks like Santa Claus, but Superman looks like Santa Claus.
Why, yes, I have been looking for a reason to use this picture. Why do you ask?
