THIS BEATS ALL>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now You Know Why Christofascists Have a
Higher Divorce Rate Than The Rest of the Country

A Florida man wearing an "I ♥ My Marriage" t-shirt was arrested last night for allegedly choking his wife during an argument in their Tampa-area home. Bradley Gellert, a 32-year-old financial consultant, was busted by Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputies and booked into jail on a felony domestic battery by strangulation charge.... The "I ♥ My Marriage" shirt was a promotional item tied to the 2008 movie "Fireproof," a Christian-themed film starring Kirk Cameron. The movie, a hit in evangelical circles, centers on a fireman's religious awakening and his simultaneous effort to save a failing marriage.

This would be hysterical if it weren't so pointedly true-to-life. The thread is classic: Man chokes wife, is arrested, mug shot of man shows him wearing a t-shirt "I (heart) My Marriage." T-shirt was a promotional item for a Christian movie about man being born-again and trying to save his marriage.

It's almost unbelievable. But you know it's all true. What could make a man angry enough to choke his wife? Maybe she wasn't "submissive" enough.

Just a thought.

P.S.: Here's the trailer for the movie. I never heard of it. Maybe its "gala premier" was at the local Walmart. (Makes sense since the red carpet would be cheaper).
