BHR: Dr. David Kyle Johnson talks Christmas

167895_1737469312545_3960752_nDr. David Kyle Johnson — Assistant Professor of Philosophy at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, PA and author of the forthcoming book The Myths that Stole Christmas — joins Karla Porter and I for the Saturday, December 14 8PM Eastern episode of Brave Hero Radio.

We shall explore the history of Christmas, question whether there is a war on Christmas, and discuss how we should – if at all – celebrate Christmas? Is it ethical to teach your children about a literal Santa Claus and tell them they are being watched at all times and rewarded with gifts (or not) according to their behavior? See Johnson’s recent Psychology Today article — in which he links Brave Hero Radio — titled “The Santa Claus Lie: Answering Objections” for more information
