Salon, Slate Advice Columns Get Same Fake Letter

FBLA knew this would happen.

Slate’s Dear Prudence gets the same letter that Salon’s Cary Tennis got earlier this month.

I am the father of a 13-year-old daughter whose mother has been taking her to an evangelical Christian church her whole life.

Tennis told the guy to suck it up and take the kid to church.

Prudence let the guy off the hook.

Prudie readers like her better but Tennis gets more responses.
