All of this to-do about Jesus and Satan being brothers is unfortunate, really. As far as I can tell, it’s all a misunderstanding based on a simple typo. Mormons don’t really think that Jesus and Satan are brothers. We think that Jesus and Santa are brothers!
And what could make more sense than that, really? Look at all of the similarities:
-Associated with Christmas time? Check.
-Sees you when you’re sleeping, knows when you’re awake? Check.
-Rewards people for good behavior? Check.
-Subject of Christmas songs? Check.
-Seldom seen in person? Check.
-Has a beard? Check.
Are any of these attributes held by Satan? I think not. There are no Christmas carols about Satan, and he doesn’t even have a beard. Why on earth would he be Jesus’ brother?
But Santa, now. That one makes sense.
Tomorrow: Brigham Young didn’t really say blood atonement — he said blood transfusions!
