Some get divorced after the kids are gone or are old enough to adjust. I am from a divorced household and it took an adjustment but I was far from a broken home.
My claim of stats of not having a man in the home is backed. Check the records of juvenile hall and see that those boys did not have a father figure.
Read my post. I already stated I agree they have rights. I just don't think they have marriage rights.
You are bigoted because you single out one group you find distasteful on which to impose your view of the purported sanctity of marriage. People routinely get remarried after divorce, a clear act of adultery under the bible, much clearer indeed than the purported sinfulness of committed gay relationships. Heterosexuals routinely get married in Vegas under circumstances that make an utter mockery of the sanctity of marriage, and those marriages are recognized as valid in every state. There is a reality show watched by millions where people compete to marry someone under the most crass conditions imaginable. And, of course, adultery and divorce in heterosexual marriages are as common, if not more common, than real committed relationships.
You don't say a word, much less take any action, to stop any of these obvious and rampant threats to the sanctity of marriage. There is not anywhere in the US a ballot initiative or proposed amendment to stop divorce or remarriage that is clearly biblically improper. Instead, you choose the group against whom you have personal animus (or at least about which you have strong disgust) and impose your views of propriety only on them. You have not chosen their sin to focus on, while ignoring so many others, based on any biblical principle, objective moral philosophy, or logically consistent rationale. That is quintessential bigotry.
