That's one thing I do actually respect about Islam - at least they don't agree with praying to man-made images of gods!
I am not sure what your talking about here. You don't pray to a cross or to a statue, you pray to God.Meathead
What are you George Carlin now? There are many more rules in the Bible.
Agree, that's why it's important to identify reason, rather than cause. You can't fix somethibg if you don't know what is causing the damage.
The point is if modern marriage was taken as seriously as it was in the past it would be viewed as somthing to aspire to not to recover from which is I'm afraid is the concensus of this forum. If divorce was as stigmitised as it was in the past people would not jump into marriage without truly knowing the nature of thier spouce. Dating is supposed to be the warm up, practice for something more, greater.....the "freedom" to leave a relationship does not make it stronger. It cheapens the vow taken to ones spouce.
There have been necessary strides made throughout history which should be applauded. Freedom of religion, women's rights ( I am personelly on the fence about this one :) ), democracy. Civil divorce is not one of them. Don't blame the act of marriage for the short comings of the idiots who jumped into marriage without knowing what it stands for. Marriage is not for everyone and at the same time not all couples should have children. If you can't keep a vow to one person what makes you think you should be able to sacrifice for the many.
Accidents will happen of course and I pray for the children in this case to be loved and guided through life in a positive way.
