Local church leaders are upset about the York Dungeons, "Satan's Grotto". They are claiming it will expose children to evil and that real evil exists and can seriously damage those who encounter it.
 



news.bbc.co.uk
Church leaders in York say the Christmas display at one of the city's tourist attractions could expose children to "evil forces".

"We've written to the attraction saying we would prefer if it they did not do it," said the Reverend Roger Simpson.

As well as meeting the alternative Santa, visitors to the grotto are handed "gifts" such as severed fingers, and can write on a scroll to sign their souls away.

A spokesman for York Dungeon said the alternative grotto had been running for many years.

He added: "There are many people who are tired and weary of the commercial aspect of Christmas and for those people our attraction comes as a light relief.

I personally feel that this is just a bit of light humour for Christmas intended to liven up the "dungeon experience". With dungeons being sombre places, I do not feel a "normal" Santa would be appropriate.

Is this something to be concerned about, or should it be considered how it was meant, a bit of fun?

Terrific idea, having shildren signing their soul away to Satan/Santa.
Even if it is just a "harmless joke" Iīd have to agree with the Church leaders on this one. Better be safe than sorry, donīt sign away your soul to anyone!

Doesn't have to be anything particular....the church gets pissed over everything...it's a pretend Santa for Pete's sake. They sure like to stick their noses up everyone else's butt don't they!? If they only knew what much of their own congregations were sinning away at ..or worse yet. .if everyone knew what most of the church leaders were doing.....oh yeah, they're all forgiven for their dirty thoughts and sinful deeds....forgot that part for a minute.
