Adventist kindergarteners around the country have never been more enraged. The source of their anger appears to be famed Adventist evangelist Doug Batchelor who has launched a whirlwind Santa isn’t real tour of schools and churches this December.
Batchelor has pledged to eradicate any belief in Santa Claus from the minds of young Adventist kids. He says that “the myth of Santa Claus, no matter how touching, warm or fuzzy, has no place in the imaginations of Adventist children.”
Since the launch of Batchelor’s Santa isn’t Real tour this week, there have been dozens of reports of children storming out of both of classrooms and Sabbath Schools, fingers firmly planted in their ears.
“Is this really necessary?” asked a frazzled, defeated-looking Adventist father of three, Halpp Meieh, one of countless parents reporting extremely difficult conversations with their children since the start of Batchelor’s tour. “What’s next? Pastor Doug holding a book burning of Uncle Arthur’s Bedtime Stories next Christmas?”
