In my (conservative) church tradition of Eastern Orthodoxy … second marriages are a penitential rite. Further remarriages are even more questionable (to be honest whether it’s even allowed depends on the diocese I think).
My point was that if one wants to compare homosexuality to divorce … I’d wonder why, divorce is bad and sinful, accepted or not. Right?]]>
The intro to the book reads:
Drawing upon scientific polling from groups like Gallup and Barna, Sider takes the measure of American evangelicals on five data points: divorce, care for the poor, sexual infidelity, racism, and physical abuse in marriage. He is appalled.
People who claim to be born again divorce at a slightly higher rate than the general population. Evangelicals give a meager 4% from their income. The most likely people to object to neighbors of a different race are white evangelicals. Sexual promiscuity among evangelical kids is rampant. Is it any wonder that “a mere 22% of people have a positive view of evangelicals”?
