The "War on Christmas" is being fought single-handedly by a Texas pastor who decided to get into the Christmas spirit by ruining the holiday for a bunch of kids. David Grisham, an Evangelical preacher, filmed himself going to a mall where kids and their parents were waiting to see Santa, then he proceeded to shout at them about how Santa "isn't real" or some bullshit. Not cool, bro.

“I’m at the mall in Amarillo Texas, and I’m going to tell the children the truth – that there is no Santa Clause," says the Evangelical pastor, David Grisham, in a video he uploaded to Facebook. “Christmas is about Jesus Christ – and that Jesus died on the cross to pay for their sins. So here we go, I’m going to tell, them the truth.”

Not surprisingly, it didn't go over well. Chaos ensues as parents swarm Grisham and try to protect their kids from the "truth." The Facebook video was viewed nearly 3 million times before Grisham took it down. But you can watch it here:

“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 warns the awestruck children in the video. "Santa’s not real. And parents, you all need to stop lying to your children and telling them that Santa Claus is real when in fact he’s not.”

The parents fought back. "I’ve got my kids over there, we don’t need you coming over here blabbing whatever it is you’re blabbing,” says one dad. When he put his hand on Grisham's shoulder, Grisham claims he is being "assaulted."

Grisham seems to love the truth to so I'm going to be straight with him. Buddy, I if you're reading this, you're a huge bummer. Let the kids (and some adults) believe in Santa. And we'll let you believe in Jesus. K?
