In a recent inquiry, one reader asked the following question, "Elizabeth, why do you promote an anti-semite like Paul Boyne? Your father was a Holocaust survivor. Shame doesn't begin to describe what you should feel." That is a good question for Elizabeth, although Cathy will be the person on behalf of the "Divorce in Connecticut" blog to respond, particularly since she formulated the "bigotry free" policy that is fundamental to this blog.
PLEASE NOTE: This blog is a bigotry free zone open to all persons, regardless of age, race, religion, color, national origin, sex, political affiliations, marital status, physical or mental disability, age, or sexual orientation. Further, this blog is open to the broad variety of opinions out there and will not delete any comments based upon point of view. However, comments will be deleted if they are worded in an abusive manner and show disrespect for the intellectual process.

Some of you, like me, have spent quite a bit of time in Church and so you think, well, isn't that where I should be able to get some support? After all, aren't those Christians supposed to love one another. What was that other line, "And you will know they are Christians by their love."
Well, ok, that was for when you were a fine, upstanding, not divorced member of the community contributing actual money to the Church. Unless you are a direct relative of one of the families that founded the Church and still run it now, don't expect to get any kind of help from a Church, particularly if you are divorcing an abusive ex husband who is especially charming to the deacons and the pastor who is most likely pretty half baked.
Love one another. What kind of baloney is that!
Ladies, I want to clue you into something that you should have always known but you will tell me now that you didn't know it. The Church is on the side of the guys, was always on the side of the guys and will always be on the side of the guys, forever and ever. Amen.
So, if you are in a situation where you haven't got enough money to pay for food and you can't afford gas to run the family car, don't go looking for the Church to help you fix that problem because they really couldn't care less. You are walking away from your hard working husband who has supported your lazy ass for years and you should be ashamed of yourself.
In fact, you should be amazed they even remember who you are, particularly if you haven't volunteered for something recently. I mean, I'll never forget the time I received a sympathy card from the Church after the death of my father and my father wasn't even dead, although superstitious as I am, I began to feel a little nervous that I might be getting some bad news soon.
I mean, please. Churches are the coldest places in the world, filled with some of the lyingest, meanest people you will ever meet. So, sure, look out for support, but don't look for it in a Church.
