A pastor from Texas wants kids to know Santa Claus is not real, and he's taking his message to shopping malls where Santas take pictures with believing children.

Pastor David Grisham of Amarillo visited a mall over the weekend and walked up and down a line of children and their parents, insisting that Santa is not real.

"Kids, I want to tell you today that there is no such thing as Santa Claus," Grisham said. "The Christmas season is about Jesus. Jesus was born 2016 years ago. He was born in a manger in a small town called Bethlehem. And that's the truth about Christmas."

Grisham filmed the scene and the video is now on YouTube. Parents eventually confronted him about what he was saying, telling him to leave. Grisham refused to go and continued to tell his message.

According to CBS11, malls in and around Amarillo know about Grisham and are aware he might visit their locations to confront other families about Santa Claus.

"If someone is causing a disruption, they will first be asked to stop and eventually asked to leave," a spokesperson for Hulen Mall said in a statement, CBS reports.

One shopper told CBS he has no problem with someone "preaching Jesus. But if he wants to take the joy from the kids, that's not good."
