There are few friends on the Way to freedom; most people would rather endure comfortable bondage in the arms of the System in the wide valley far below than experience the danger liberty offers. There, on the narrow path on the mountain it just keeps getting narrower until we have ditched every burden that drags us back and spend more time crawling on our knees than we do walking.
Kids being forced to sit on Santa's lap, obviously terrified. If the man didn't have a red coat and white beard these same parents would be accused of child abuse. They must be completely confused by their parents' differing messages: on the one hand; 'Don't talk to strangers,' and on the other, 'Come and sit in the lap of this jolly old man you've never met before.' I should think the children feel totally betrayed by their parents, whom they have trusted up until now. No wonder they're screaming; the poor things. And the caption under the photo is: One of our favorites that we used for Christmas cards last year.
Doesn't this say it all?
Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me', not, 'bring them to Santa'.
Wake up and open your eyes all the great brainwashed...
