Unwed mothers in 2007 delivered 40% of the babies born in the U.S.

Now get ready for some MAJOR sarcasm...

A recent article details the record high number of out-of-wedlock births in the United States. However, we need to keep such reports in context as to not let it destroy our faith. We need to understand that we undoubtedly cannot blame these men and women for their sexual fornication. Obviously the mockery of the holy sanctity of Christian marriage isn't their fault.

The fact that out-of-wedlock births are up 25% in last five years may not show a growing trend towards traditional Christian values but again, let's look through our distorted Religious Right glasses and see the situation for how it really appears. (Sigh...)

I think we, as God-fearing obedient Christians, all know who the real culprits are and where the blame appropriately lies...

The homosexuals.

However, I'm sure once Prop 8 gets reversed and same-sex marriage is allowed, and those wicked creatures stop conceiving out of wedlock, I'm positive that number will come down to under 5%...right?

This does not surprise me at all. Hell people live together for years before they get married if they ever get married. Back in the day this was unherd of.

Exactly my point bro. According to the Yes on 8 campaigners marriage is instituted so children can be raised with a mother and father, however, instead of addressing where the problem really lies, namely, the inability of religious organizations to influence their members to keep covenants of chastity and/or fidelity.

Instead they attack the infinitesimal percentage of homosexuals who want to get enter into a ceremony of love.

When more than half the marriages end in divorce and the birthrate out of wedlock is 40%...why is the religious attention focused on gays?

Truly you know the answer, right?

Because man/woman relationships at least have the "potential" to be eternal.

Or so says the doctrine of 2000s. Who knows what we'll be saying in thirty years. To borrow from your quotes:

"It's behind us. Look, that's behind us. Don't worry about those little flecks of history."

“Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whomsoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge that now has come into the world… We have now had added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don’t matter any more.”

Ya think?

However, methinks divorced people won't have much chance for marriage in heaven.

Or abusive spouses.

Otherwise unworthy spouses.

Unhappy couples.

But we don't want to listen to this. In the end it is about God's current view on marriage and people's rights. The one du jour just happens to think gay people are destined for eternal misery.

Because everyone wants their own kingdom to deal with.
