Prominent Christian preacher Harold Camping is heard every day on on Family Radio, broadcast from coast to coast. According to him, today is the day of the Rapture and Judgment. When the largest earthquake ever known to mankind shakes the ground. When the Earth spits out the bodies […]
As a trickster, Krampus exists outside of simple divisions between good and evil. Krampus isn’t a goodie goodie like Santa Claus, but that doesn’t mean he’s evil. […]
