    This is what happens when sodomy is legalized.

    1. Drill it into kids' heads that they shouldn't have sex until marriage

    2. Kids get married at 18.

    3. They realize within a few years that maybe their first-lay home-school-sweetheart wasn't the best choice of lifetime partner, move to "correct" their "youthful indiscretion".

    Voila, they can in their minds justify vilification of gay marriage since it is an inherently immoral proposal, while apologizing for their own actions because it was just an honest mistake.

    Just saying that's how I've seen it play out quite a bit.

    wat

    Anyways, I am not surprised. When you try to hold yourself to an impossible standard like Evangelicals often do, you fall hard and fast because you will never be holy enough, never be good enough.

    Better to just be what you are, the way you need to be, and hope it is good enough.

    Evangelicals have no idea what humans are and hate everything that makes them thus.

    Exactly. Realistically speaking, sexual abstinence is not something most people interested having sex can do. Every instinct in them is telling them to do otherwise. You can only shut that up for so long.

    Abstinence is sexual deviancy and perversion.

    I'm still waiting for them to deliver on proof of their wacky claims of an "afterlife" and an "all knowing loving god".

    Barna group, who had conducted and released the study cited in 1999, offered another in 2008. (http://www.barna.org/barna-update/article/15-familykids/42-new-marriage-and-divorce-statistics-released?q=divorce+rates).

    Divorce Among Adults Who Have Been Married

    (Base: 3792 adults)

    Population Segment Have Been Divorced No. of Interviews

    All adults 33% 3792

    Evangelical Christians 26% 339
    Non-evangelical born again Chrisitans 33% 1373
    Notional Christians 33% 1488
    Associated with non Christian faith 38% 197
    Atheist or agnostic 30% 269
    All born again Christians 32% 1712
    All non born again Christians 33% 2080

    Protestant 34% 1997
    Catholic 28% 875

    Upscale 22% 450
    Downscale 39% 367

    White 32% 2641

    Asian 20% 128

    Conservative 28% 1343
    Moderate 33% 1720
    Liberal 37% 474

    Which seems to conflict sharply with the original survey.
