"Creepy" Doesn't Capture It!

From Candace Chellew-Hodge at Religion Dispatches:

In a video by the outfit ["Repent Amarillo"] (who, by the way, "abhor violence") Santa's list of "heinous crimes against the Lord our God" are read out before the execution. Among them "idolatry" for replacing himself with Jesus Christ, and for being a "stumbling block to parents who lie to their children that you exist to bring them gifts."

Then, before the violence begins, Santa is told: "We would plead that the Lord have mercy on your soul, but you have no soul, as you exist only as a lie and nothing more."

Then, the video gets really chilling and creepy as parents are instructed to bring their children to the screen to witness Santa's final moments. Then the shooting starts as three people lock and load and empty their guns into Santa several times. Then, the "coup de grace" (pronounced "coo-dee-grace" on the video), as one goes in to take a final couple of close in shots to finish off the jolly fat man. The video shows just the barrel of the shotgun as two shots are fired pointblank into Santa's head.

With the gun powder still thick in the air, we're told that they're "doing this all in good fun ..."

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Or "Merry Christmas and lights out, fat man!"
I ain't watching that video (just now, anyway), but I note the guy in the splash frame is wearing a "coexist" shirt with a big red X through it. Which tells you all about their attitude towards people they don't agree with.
Or, "Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men" = "Rest in Peace!"
