Reimer on Jesus: Disrespectful and degrading

Susan Reimer's column citing new evidence that Jesus may have married was as disrespectful and degrading as the reality TV shows she imagines Jesus and his "wife" being in ("At home with the Jesuses," Sept. 24).

I'm sure she thought it was cute and witty, but I just found it disgusting.
