CHRISTIAN MAJOR LEAGUE BALLPLAYER BOOTS HIS CHRISTIAN POP STAR WIFE ALLEGING "INAPPROPRIATE MARITAL CONDUCT" Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist filed for divorce from his Christian pop star wife Julianna Zobrist contending that his wife "has been guilty of inappropriate marital conduct which renders further cohabitation impossible," which, we guess, means that he claims that she's been screwing around while Ben has been out there earning a massive paycheck, telling everyone what great Christians they are, and how you should be one too.  What does this teach us about marriage, "love" and religion? Here, Tom sets everything straight!
