The United Kingdom is about to repeat the ill-treatment of the Catholic Church pioneered in Boston. The government of the UK may effectively shut down the nation-wide Catholic adoption services rather than grant a religious exemption to the new law requiring equal treatment on the basis of sexual orientation.

When you have a reputation as a defender of marriage, you’ve got to deal with the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. This week, I got an e-mail that was definitely Not Good.

Dear Dr. J

“I’m part of group of 5 men. We all work together; we are all married, with children. Our ages range from 35 to 45. All but one of us sleeps in the basement because our wives don’t really want us very badly. The youngest of our group does not yet sleep in the basement but he reports the same frustration that moves all of us there. Sharing a bed with a woman who does not want you is painful.

“Oh, she wants you to pay the bills and be a father to your children, but she doesn’t want you. It’s difficult to just leave when you know you’ve created responsibilities, but it is pretty clear she’d rather you just left.

“It’s entirely possible that all 5 of us are losers, bad lovers and just plain whiners. It’s possible, but it’s statistically highly improbable. All 5 of us have good jobs; all but one has an advanced degree. We live in pleasant houses in safe neighborhoods.

“So pardon us if when we read the phrase “abandoned their wife” we are more inclined to believe that is was a “sotto voce ejection”.”

No, the Left is hyper-active sexually. I mean something much deeper: the Left is war with the fact that we are sexual beings. (more…)
