What Threat to Family? Countries and States with Gay Marriage Have Low Divorce Rates

Not only have gay rights had no effect on constantly expanding population rates, but they’ve had no effect on traditional marriage in those European countries where they have the most extensive legal protections. Similarly, the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts hasn’t changed a relevant fact: Massachusetts has one of the lowest divorce rates in the United States. This is relevant because divorce is the real threat to American families, having broken up more than fifty percent of all marriages since it achieved widespread acceptance. Also, unlike gay sex, divorce is forbidden by Jesus himself: “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.” As we have seen with abortion and guns, the focus on gay marriage is turning out to be a dangerous distraction from the real problem.
