His wife is out there acting like this and he should not tolerate it. She's actively contacting his old friends and telling them to renounce the bible and constitution. She's not acting like a woman, not being feminine. It's his job as head of the household to lead her. I know, not everyone agrees with that point of view. You are right that it would be MUCH harder to do at this point. It has gone way too far. Maybe she is just mentally ill and he really isn't tolerating this behavior, but that's not the impression I got.
