Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Holy in the Pulpit — Evil as Hell at Home Dear Steve and crew, Can you do a segment on how preachers act holy in the pulpit on Sunday, but then grouchy, hateful, and evil as hell at home? They don’t want to share extra blessings from the church with the wives. But then they leave home, don’t speak to their wives, get up in church on Sunday morning and preach a sermon. I don’t get it. They grin, laugh and smile with everyone else, but they are cold as hell to their wives. How does a wife continue to handle this? Yes, pray I know, but I am getting to the point where I don’t even want to go to church anymore or at least to our church. There are a lot of unfair issues going on between his kids and mine — my son is treated like an outsider. Please let me know if this can be discussed? A lot of first ladies deal with this issue but have to walk around and look happy. Signed, Confused
