It's a story that I've heard before

An old friend of mine (in truth, the ex of one of my BFF's) had his wife leave him.

Oh, how I know that pain.  Except in my case I was the one inflicting it.  Hearing his story sent a fresh wave of guilt over what I had to do.  (And yes, I had to.  It may have been rough, but I believe we're both better for having the divorce).  I've posted cheery, hopefully helpful comments.

Then I looked a little closer at his Facebook.  "Born-Again Christian."  I have nothing against people of any faiths.  They just tend not to like me.  Why?  Because I study, and question and come at religion from a historical and sociological perspective.  I'm highly critical of taking the bible (which I believe is a VERY flawed document) word for word.  That tends to not endear me to the born-again peeps.

In the end, I hope that the little bits of insight that I have given help.
