In the Name of the Lord — Sunday's open line

BIG AND MUDDY: The cresting Arkansas River has filled the lock at Murray Lock and Dam with debris from the rapidly rushing river.
  • BIG AND MUDDY: The cresting Arkansas River has filled the lock at Murray Lock and Dam with debris from the rapidly rushing river.

It's a Sunday open line. Water's still high as Brian Chilson's photo of the Arkansas River shows. 

Sunday is also a good day to read  this jaw-dropping story in Daily Beast. It's about a missionary couple that went to Asia for a Baptist megachurch in Dallas. She discovered her husband was addicted to child pornography and she thought the families he'd worked with should know that. The church has forgiven him. Her? You have to read it to believe it. As the story puts it, the church seemed more interesting in making her bow to their authority than to responding to accusations about her husband. All that's missing is a churchly type blaming the blood-thirsty media for undue attention to child molestation to fully echo a local situation.

It's more female subjugation at work and more material about that branch of so-called religion for Fox News' Megyn Kelly to consider before she interviews the Jim Bob Duggar family. Or maybe she can just get cues from Mike Huckabee.
