It's all so ironic.<quoted text>I gave an ultimatum that stated, "Get sober or don't live here." I also specifically said to her that I would not divorce her.
Your atheism is wavering, dear...otherwise how do I have anything to answer for to a god who you say doesn't exist?
When atheists are backed against the wall with their relativism, they ultimately appeal to the Final Authority.
"Well, Jesus said no divorce..."
"Well, Jesus said feed the poor..."
"Well, Jesus said ----[fill in the blank]..."
Even they understand academically what they reject spiritually.
