Reality

The assumption that Christmas is a Christian holiday is nearly universal.

It is an institution, an extraordinary cultural phenomenon, and it is promoted by both believers and those who don’t believe.

Now you ask, why is Tom Horn worth writing about? Because each of us needs to determine whether Horn is a ‘false prophet’ or not.
