A reader sends along one of the most moronic, and vicious, tweets that I’ve seen in a while.
I love my husband. Oh man, I love my children & my grandchildren. Way beyond words, I do. I love my friends & co-laborers in Christ so deeply. But the love story of my life has been with Jesus of Nazareth, whom I have never once seen & whose voice I’ve never once heard out loud.

As I never tire of saying, if you think that pleasing an Invisible Wizard In The Sky is more important than your wedding vows, then you are a fool who is defrauding your spouse and not actually married at all.
Moore has close to 1,000,000 Twitter followers; doubtless, many of them are women who look to her for guidance living a Christian life. And few of them will recoil with disgust when they read that tweet and mutter, “What is this insane bullshit?” No. They will blame themselves for not feeling the same way, for being inadequate, for not ‘getting’ it — for centering their lives on their spouse and children.
This harms marriages and families, and benefits only the pious predators.
