Well, Ratty, you're wrong, I do agree. My very point was that Horn, exactly
like Mathew (the most egregious of the gospeleers, IMO--and I will happily
cite how), when he wasn't present at an event, made free to invent, but with
the sincerity of love and the drive of evangelism, which is, I suppose, what
Alex means by the Holy Spirit. That, however, doesn't quite make it fact.

Alex, I am interested in what "going through the conversion process" means.
If you think that is off-topic, would you please email me about it? TIA.
(The fact that I am a heathen doesn't make me theologically rude, except to
the Rat, who likes it.)
