A real life Grinch has ruined Christmas for several kids in Amarillo, Texas, by shattering their view of good old Santa Claus. Pastor David Grisham Jr., of Last Frontier Evangelism, also used Facebook to let children know that Santa isn't real.
Grisham sucked the Christmas spirit right out of a mall in Amarillo where he told children waiting in line to see Santa that the jolly man in red was not the real deal. What's worse is that he filmed the whole thing.
"The man you're going to see today is just a man in a suit, dressed up like Santa, but Santa does not exist," Grisham said in the video. "Santa's not real."
As the camera pans around, views can see some very confused children and some very angry parents. He proceeded to shout at the line of people, telling them that the real reason for the season was Jesus Christ. He also accused the parents of lying to their children.
"We're going to tell the children today, the truth -- that there is no Santa Claus," he said. "Christmas is about Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for our sins. And Jesus was born in a manger 2,016 years ago."
Parents in line were not amused by Grisham's antics.
"I've got my kids over there and we don't need you coming over here, blabbing whatever the hell you want," one father says in the video.
More people joined in the removal of Grisham from the area and he finally retreated back to his cave. Unfortunately, it appears the heart of this Grinch stayed two sizes too small.
