AFA takes out full page newspaper print ads claiming marriage is defined only by God
Tuesday, The American Family Association took out a full page ad in the Washington Post, claiming that marriage comes from God, not man.
The obvious problem is, of course, separation of church and state. I have always thought it rather illogical that a God designs the lives of beings with Free Will. God is not writing a novel. We're not characters in a screenplay (at least not mine).
But there is something else at work here. Marital partners may feel that adherence to religious precepts, and belief that others recognize them, makes the marital relationship more passionate. If they believe secular ideas define marriage, they may feel less incentivized to stay in it.
