The pontiff rocks it again with a detailed new exhortation challenging his own church and ripping "trickle-down" economics. Don't drink or swear if you are building a Mormon temple. And check out the guy who says he married an agnostic but she turned out to be a Bible-thumper. Really?

  1. Re: The man wanting to know what to do with the right wing woman he married. My advice is to Run! Run as fast as you can, as far as you can from this woman. Sounds like she married you to convert you which is why you probably didn’t notice much before you got married. If you stay married to this woman and have her kids you will regret it for the rest of your life. Life is too short to stay married to someone, who with her beliefs, is hoping to convert you to live her religion. That is, of course, assuming that you don’t want to be converted, have 5 kids etc. Good luck!

  2. I went to the Dear Prudence link @slate.com & they had another letter from someone talking about ” missionary dating ” and how some churches actually encourage & condone this. Wonder if you could report on this very deceptive dating practice as people ought to know this actually exist & should at least be a bit wary of this in their potential marriage partners? Not that this applies to me but if 1 marriage to one of these right wing lunatics can be prevented by making people aware of this it would be well worth it.
