Religious and political conservatives are complicit in the rise of the “no-fault” divorce policies in the United States, which has led to the dissolution of countless families in America in the last 40-plus years, a prominent conservative author asserted Friday.
It has been said that in order for evil to triumph good men and women simply must do nothing. The silence of the lambs is certainly deafening when it comes to cultural decay. I am afraid that for far too long our pulpits have remained eerily silent on issues that have proven to be detrimental to society has a whole. If the church is instructed to be the salt and light of the world, then its silence must be seen as culpability in societies decay.
Divorce, infidelity, promiscuity, fornication, the so-called sexual revolution has left in its wake a weaker societal fabric not a stronger one. The effects of this no-fault self-serving attitude toward fidelity in marriage has led to fractured families and has had a devastating affect the children of these broken homes.
Perhaps that is why Jesus said so clearly and plainly that God hates divorce. I sure wish the church hated it as much as God does.
And that is the way I see it what say you?
