Satanic Santas!

Putting the Satan into Santa - Mad Santas go on a rampage in New Zealand, last year it was here in Wales - but the Satanic truth is much more shocking... However, that depends which version you want to believe

Without question the most fertile time in the average persons’ life for receiving and trusting the Lord Jesus is the pre-teen years. Any church bus worker or youth worker knows young children are very receptive to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For children that child-like faith is natural. It is what the Lord Jesus described in Matthew 10:15. As we get older; the sensual, youthful lusts and logical, carnal mind begin to dominate our lives. And as that happens, our heart becomes hardened and seared to the spiritual things of God.

Barna Research Group published a survey conducted among teenagers titled Third Millennium Teens. Under the subtitle "Displacing the Myths," the report said:
The Myth: the teen years are evangelistically productive.
The Reality: if they're not saved by age 13, they probably never will be. (Barna 65)

The report goes on to say, "The data shows clearly that the prime evangelistic years are those before a person becomes a teenager." (Barna 65)


The war on christmas is really a war for children's souls!

Seems the details were a bit fuddled. Wrong city. Wrong motive.

In Auckland we know how to party.

Who hasn't ever wanted to dress up as Santa and piss on cars? I mean, come on! It's like, one of the ultimate dreams from the golden days of our youth.

Weird, I read it somewhere else first, and though this line was amusing:


WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A group of 40 people dressed in Santa Claus costumes, many of them drunk, rampaged through New Zealand's largest city,


Largest city since when?! But the link above correctly points out it was in Auckland.

Maybe the guy was writing about Auckland, but in Wellington. Like, he'd run there.

Run away.

You know.

From the santas.

It was a sight indeed. Wish I'd have taken the shot of the six Santas I saw being questioned by the police. Not your typical Christmas scene.

Santa has always been scary, why we let him into our homes, goodness only knows!

Do your research first. Be sure to choose appropriate Christmas Cards and gifts for your religous friends.
