  • Wow. Who knew the straw that broke the camel's back was Capt. America?

  • Don't you know how crucial Cap. America is? To deny him, is to deny the very foundation of America. Shame Shame

  • WOW! I am shocked a parent is really going to make him do that. So many parents now days just give their kids whatever they want. Don't think about teaching their kids about things like that. Being grateful for what is given to you even if it was not something you wanted.

  • Well in that case I am totally in the parent's corner. How dare he deny the awesomeness of Capt. America? WTF was he thinking?

  • I can't really read this. But I get the idea he was ungrateful for the stuff he got for Christmas and now he has to return it?

    Answer by Dardenella at 2:26 PM on Jan. 7, 2013

  • How ridiculous. That invalidates the child's likes and dislikes. Who told the church to give the boy the Capt America thing anyway? Why not just pay it forward and donate the Capt America gift? This child is not ungrateful. He knows what he likes. He didn't ask for Capt America. He'll be blessed if he pays it forward. The parents are ignorant for causing this child stress and humiliation. Shame on the parents. It could have been a learning lesson but they failed this boy.

  • I feel sorry for the kid. Sure, he needs a lesson in being appreciative, but I think this goes too far.
