Grinch stands outside primary school with ‘Santa is fake’ sign

That wasn’t very Christmassy

Christmas is a magical time of the year, well, for most anyway.

For Texas pastor David Harold Grisham, his sole mission has been to destroy every positive thing about the festive period.

In a recent attempt to ruin Christmas, Grisham decided to stand outside a primary school in a Grinch outfit, holding up a sign that said “Santa is fake, Jesus is real”.

After making himself known the local police soon came and took Grisham away.


Explaining what had happened, he said: “I got assaulted by a parent and they tore my sign, and the police did their very best to distract me from my mission and blocked me from exercising my first amendment rights as much as they could.

“They as much as admitted so.

“Very unprofessional.”

Grisham then revealed why he chose to do what he did.

“It’s very telling for a society to go this far in protecting a LIE.

“To go that far in trying to protect kids from hearing the truth. It’s no wonder our country is in trouble.”

In a video of the incident, the pastor can be heard shouting: “You shouldn’t lie to children.”
