Florida's Family Policy Council is looking for your help in the war against marriage.
In just the past two weeks we have seen marriage and adultery lead the headlines with Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina, and just one week earlier Nevada Senator John Ensign. In addition to these sad examples of fallen men and now struggling wives and families, we see the marital problems of reality-TV's Jon & Kate Plus Eight (Jon and Kate Gosselin) and the Today Show last week featured an outrageous story on how "marriage is an outdated institution". Unbelievable! Everywhere we look, we can't get away from the fact that from without and within, "marriage" is under fire!You know, I was married once, and it didn't work out, and when it (mercifully) ended, I didn't think that celebrity divorces were weakening my marriage or marriage in general. I didn't blame it on anything but the fact that my wife and I weren't good together, that we were too young when we got married and didn't know who we were or what we were getting into. If it weren't for the fact that our church forbade divorce for any reason other than adultery, we'd have gotten divorced years earlier. You know, for a group who constantly harps on personal responsibility, these Family Policy Council folks are really bad about blaming others for their problems.
