Shelter For Wimps Opens In Switzerland

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A trickle of newly separated Swiss fathers looking for shelter and help after marital breakdown have been finding a warm bed and a sympathetic ear from a pilot project on the shores of Lake Zurich.

Protestant pastor Andreas Cabalzar has founded Switzerland`s first shelter for newly separated fathers in the Swiss village of Erlenbach, not far from Geneva.


Unique in Switzerland, the project has seen the numbers of applications to stay in the house increasing every week." Reuters

These Swiss fathers are the ultimate wimps.

Most of these are men who have been kicked out of their homes by their wives. These dudes should never have left their homes in the first place, let the wife stay in a motel.

A real man who is separated from his wife, or is in the process of getting a divorce will find a warm bed and a sympathetic ear from a hooker or a hook-up. He certainly won`t cry his heart out to a preacher.

A preacher isn`t going to offer these men any practical advice. "Pray, Son and seek divine guidance" ain`t gonna cut it. My advice to these wimpy heartbroken men would be: Dude, you need to get laid, and forget about your wife.
