Is from Al Mohler. Dr. Mohler deals with the scandal of divorce in the evangelical church: Divorce — The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience. He refers to and interviews political scientist Mark Smith on this topic (there is both a blog post and an audio file, you should definitely listen to the audio file as well)
The sanctity of human life is a cause that demands our priority and sacrifice. The challenge represented by the possibility (or probability) of legalized same-sex marriage demands our attention and involvement, as well.
But divorce harms many more lives than will be touched by homosexual marriage. Children are left without fathers, wives without husbands, and homes are forever broken. Fathers are separated from their children, and marriage is irreparably undermined as divorce becomes routine and accepted. Divorce is not the unpardonable sin, but it is sin, and it is a sin that is condemned in no uncertain terms.
Evangelical Christians are gravely concerned about the family, and this is good and necessary. But our credibility on the issue of marriage is significantly discounted by our acceptance of divorce. To our shame, the culture war is not the only place that an honest confrontation with the divorce culture is missing.
Divorce is now the scandal of the evangelical conscience.
I think that is a powerful statement. Divorce is far more devastating to family life than homosexual "marriage" and is just as wrong. What was interesting was that this political scientist recognized something that much of the church does not, that divorce is a hard thing to speak out against because it is so common in the church and you can't hide it. Someone who has an abortion can come to church the next Sunday and no one will be the wiser. When a couple in a local church gets divorced, everyone knows about it.
The church frankly is soft on divorce and we are called out on it, and rightly so, by the unbelieving world. It is easy to rail against homosexuals because by and large they are not members of conservative evangelical churches and are not putting money into the offering plate. It is harder to call something a sin that so many people in the church are starting to see as, if not normal, at least a reality we have to live with.
