Each Christmas season brings the hullabaloo out from hiding all the year long. But make no mistake: Nonbelievers consider themselves godless, but America is not. There was but one night - one Holy Night — and we must exalt it. As my favorite president, Thomas Jefferson, said, “But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

Enjoy the holy days.
