“The destruction of dreams”

Christmas 1986. A catholic priest at a school in Jersey City NJ. USA, told his class that Santa Clause did not exist. We all know he is correct. However, how would he react if he was told  that god did not exist.I think he would argue that he did ,even though there is no evidence of it being true.

So many of us live in a world of  fantasies, especially children. Why destroy their dreams. The priest who believes in god , even though there is no evidence he/she exists, enjoys his fantasy while destroying a child’s world of dreams.
