Taking the pun from a friend on Facebook regarding the hilarious story of a church minister who hung one from the roof to make a point.
Knudsen’s hatred for the creature he says “comes from the devil” manifested itself in the form of a mock execution by hanging of a Christmas elf outside his church.
Around the elf’s neck was a sign reading “we reject Satan and all his works and all his empty promises”, a reference to the Christian baptism rite.
Knudsen said decorating with elves at Christmas was “comparable to decorating with Nazi flags”, and described elves of all sorts as “poltergeists that come from the devil and make children sick”.
Never mind that poltergeists and devils don’t actually exist… I wonder if he feels at all embarrassed by the fact that people the world over have laughed at him for this. Probably feels even more righteous, actually. Clearly we’re all damned to hell.
