Laura at HotAir makes some good points regarding marriage in these United States. Here’s one that falls into the category of “truth hurts:”
We allow our churches to be used as elaborate stage sets for bridezilla productions, often with just pro forma premarital counseling or sometimes none at all. When our fellow church members get divorced, we do not counsel them adequately. We fail to create a culture of marriage in our youth and twenty-somethings. We have shown massive disrespect for marriage. When we demand others respect it, it’s not surprising that we’re not taken seriously.
Hypocrisy is not useful in supporting any side in an argument. Nowhere is this becoming clearer than in the discussion of marriage: who should engage in it and what does it really mean.
