Pastor heckles kids and parents waiting to see Santa at a Texas mall.
Pastor David Grisham Jr., who leads Last Frontier Evangelism, went to a mall in Amarillo on Saturday to taunt a group of children and their parents waiting in line to meet Santa Claus.
Pastor Grisham wanted to let the kids know that they were really just going to meet a “man in a suit” and that Santa Claus does not exist.
In a now viral video the religious extremist can be seen bellowing at the parents and children that there is no Santa Claus, and that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ.
In the video Grisham yells:
Kids, I wanted to tell you today that there is no such thing as Santa Claus. Santa Claus does not exist!
The Christmas season is about Jesus. Jesus was born 2,016 years ago. He was born in a manger in a small town called Bethlehem. That’s the truth about Christmas.
The man you’re going to see today is just a man in a suit dressed up like Santa, but Santa does not exist!
The demented pastor also addresses the children’s parents, chastising them for “bearing false witness against God” by substituting the “lie” of Santa Claus for the “truth” of Jesus Christ:
Don’t lie to your children and tell them there’s such thing as Santa, when you know in reality that there are no flying reindeer, there is no workshop of the North Pole, there is no elves making toys, that you buy all the gifts and put them under tree.
After a few moments of being harassed and abused by Grisham, a concerned parent walks over and asks him to leave the mall because he’s upsetting the children and their families:
Quit talking this mess, you understand me? Now stop. I’ve got my kids over there, we don’t need you coming over here and blabbing whatever the hell you’re blabbing. Now go on — go. Now.
When Grisham complains that he’s just trying to tell the truth, the father says:
That’s not your decision to tell my kids what’s the truth and what’s not.
