Social media condemned a Texas pastor who told children waiting to see a mall Santa that the big man in red doesn't exist.
"Kids, I wanted to tell you today that here is no such thing as Santa Claus," Last Frontier Evangelism preacher Dave Grisham said in the video. "Santa Claus does not exist. The Christmas season is about Jesus. Jesus was born 2016 years ago; He was born in a manger in a small town called Bethlehem."
The pastor continued, "Don't lie and tell your children that there is such a thing as Santa, when you know in reality that there are no flying reindeer ... There is (sic) no elves making toys. You buy all of the gifts and put them under the tree; that's the truth."
Facebook removed the video, but Last Frontier evangelism reposted it.
Did Grisham cross a line, or was he speaking in truth? Watch the video and let us know.
