Susan Reimer's attempt at humor in her commentary on evidence that Jesus had a wife was at best pathetic and at worst blasphemous ("At Home with the Jesuses?" Sept. 24).

No wonder we live in a world where Christian values have been reduced to mere punch-lines. In her failed bid at jocularity, Ms. Reimer reinforces the secular-progressive mind set that the mere mention of God is somehow an affront to every "scholarly" liberal.

Remember, these are the same people who insist that long-held Christian doctrines be abandoned in favor of wholesale slaughter of the unborn and same-sex unions.
