I'm sorry Burlem, you misunderstand me. I am ALL FOR advocating high moral standards---even though NONE of us can live up to them.
What I was referring to are those twisted folks that take delight in seeing strong advocates fail.
Ah, I miswrote my post. Let me try again:
If his wife has done something that he cannot in good conscience live with, fine. But if tall, distinguished-looking Prager has found a younger, hotter honey, then my respect for him goes down to zero.
What's phony about getting a divorce?
That's good; Burlem, it would seem, did not. My bad.
And what would lead you to jump to such a suggestion so quickly?
I would say pompous.
How dare he? Just because he finds himself divorcing. I divorced, and my then-two-year-old son has had to live with a deficit ever since. I had no choice: my ex threatened harm to my child.
I fear that Dennis is divorcing so he can have a better sex life. I hope I am wrong.
Divorce is always a deficit for all children. It on occasion is better than the alternative, but it's never a good thing. Children crave an intact home where the parents have the children as top priority and create a loving peaceful haven EVEN IF THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE IT. Dennis has other priorities. Once you sleep on those cushy Dux beds, I guess you want everything in your own life to feel good.
Some women aren't able to live with a pompous phony, I guess.
He has always been a little focused on the male sex drive, porn, etc. I hope I am wrong.
It's seldom a true either-or situation. There is a wide range of possibilities besides the two you suggested.
For example, a man can reject a dreadful spouse and at the same time take up with a younger, fit goodlooking woman.
Some people have an almost pathological bias against goodlooking women. Don't hate them 'cause they are beautiful. It's entirely possible for a man to find a very attractive romantic companion that is a woman of substance. I know - I have one in my life right now.
The fact that a man takes up with an attractive woman, in itself, is no reason to cause your respect for him to plummet to zero.
Dennis has consistently said that divorce is a tragedy, but not necessarily a catastrophe.
Nothing. I just never liked the guy. The first time I heard him he was being rude to a big fan who disagreed about something and he struck me as a hypocrite.
I will say this - he's trying to minimize the harm divorce does to kids. That's D-E-N-I-A-L.
First you ask what his reasons are, then you announce that he can't possibly have any reasons except that he must be an offended homosexual. Nice.
Got a picture of him?
This indicates that before this divorce he thought that.
I asked why he thought he is a "pious phony"? It can't be because of this announcement because this fellow claimed Prager has always been a pious phony.
Dennis has spoken of divorce many times over the years and has always had clarity on the subject, in my opinion. I haven't heard todays brodcast and I am sorry at this bad news, but I don't think Dennis is a phony at all.
