Why, Huma?

I can understand wanting to keep a marriage together. I can understand a wife’s devotion to a sacred institution and vows. But this is bordering on unhealthy, ridiculous, and flat-out madness. But then again, Huma Abedin has worked for Hillary Clinton for decades, so the crazy part is baked in.

Abedin is reportedly “working hard” on her marriage to accused child porn hoarder and serial sexter Anthony Weiner. According to the New York Post, which, if they wanted to post fake news would likely go after better targets, she is “giving the marriage another try.”

“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share . . . If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.”

“Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”

Why would they hope that?

How many times being degraded and humiliated does it take for Abedin to realize that Weiner is damaged goods? As a Christian, I tend to err on the side of never writing people off, but as Jesus said, “this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Outside of Weiner’s acceptance of the life-changing power of Christ, I see little hope of him overcoming a life-controlling sex addiction.

Of course, anything is possible, but Abedin is playing against the odds. Way, way, way against the odds.

Bust that’s not the most disturbing part of this.

Another source, who worked closely with Bill and Hillary Clinton for several years, corroborates this, saying the breakup was “more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.”

So Abedin would have stayed with the train wreck, disgraceful husband were it not for Hillary Clinton, the model of sticking with the disgrace?

All I can do is pray for both of them.
