Reimer mistakes blasphemy for humor

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.

    Iran deal — war now or war later

    In its recent editorial, The Sun adopts President Barack Obama's primary argument in favor of the Iran deal — that the only choice is the deal or war ("A 'good enough' agreement," July 24). No one wants war. But the choice here is not war or no war. It is war now or war later.
