John, Sam and Santa

What do John the Baptist, Uncle Sam and Santa Claus have in common?

Why, John Frum, of course!
The people on the isolated South Pacific island of Tanna, in the country of Vanuatu, have long put their faith in John Frum, a figure they insist is a former American GI during World War II who will someday emerge from the volcano and shower his believers with wealth and knowledge.

Frum has been described as a combination of John the Baptist, Uncle Sam and Santa Claus.
Well, if you are worried about their poor lost souls, fear not, for Christian evangelism has arrived to save the day. Apparently 7000 islanders have given their hearts to Jesus™ after watching a Jesus™ film video that was left behind. I guess if you're gullible enough to be swayed by Santa, Sam and John, then Jesus™ should not be too hard to swallow.
