The Christian faith puts a very, very large stigma on divorce. For example, in Matthew 5:32 Jesus says:
But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
In Matthew 19:9, Jesus repeats that sentiment:
I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery
Divorce rates among conservative Christians are significantly higher than for other faith groups, and much higher than Atheists and Agnostics experience.
How can one go on and on about Gay marriage being wrong, about it ruining the 'sanctity' of marriage and being an sin when divorce is just as much of a sin and the divorce rate among Christians is higher than any other faith?
IhartU, you're right. I'm a Christian, and to me no sin is greater than the other in God's eyes. Sin is sin, and that's how God looks at it. There's different consequences to sin, but the sin is still just SIN. If you lie, it's a sin just like adultery is. That's why I'm not going to bash gay marriages and such, because unless you haven't sinned in your life, then you have no room to condemn any other person for it. We were born in to sin, and we all do it. To me, I do not like that we do. I don't like lying, adultery, or anything of sin, but condemning people will not save them, help them, or make them stop. I don't agree with the sin of homosexuality, just like I don't agree with the sin of unforgiveness, which I am guilty of. I often stay vengeful and let it get to me and make me bitter. I've sinned in many ways, and that doesn't mean or condone it, but I know that it's going to happen with everyone.
