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.

    Brown ads are appalling

    The latest attack ads from Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's campaign and the Democratic Party hit a new low in sleaze, lies and hypocrisy ("Heading into final weeks, Brown shifts tone," Oct. 15). With oozing self-righteousness, they show youngsters and speak of how their opponent is...
