Merry Christmas, everyone

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

The sign translates as "we reject Satan and all his works and
all his empty promises"
Danish pastor John Knudsen, who runs the Løkken Free Church in Vendsyssel, has a bit of a problem with elves, which he says are “poltergeists that come from the devil and make children sick”. Therefore, he has done what any sensible person in his situation would, and hanged one of Santa's Little Helpers (in effigy, presumably he was too slow to catch a real one) from the roof of his church, along with a sign reading “we reject Satan and all his works and all his empty promises”.

That pesky Satan and his empty promises... Anyway, this is a tough one for we secular sorts - we're supposed to be waging a War on Christmas, and this looks a lot like an act of war against Christmas, but at the same time Knudsen is a Christian pastor who says he loves Christmas. Frankly, I just don't know what to think.
