1 in 3 Americans want a divorce between clergy and civil marriages


Should clergy divorce themselves from civil marriage?

Such a church-state split — already endorsed by some Catholic and evangelical leaders — is showing surprising popularity in two new surveys released Tuesday by LifeWay Research.



Yes. Better yet, get rid of civil marriages altogether.


I’m in favor of this too. Why should the church be an agent of secular governments with no respect for marriage. The church should just have the position of treating civil marriage like it doesn’t exist.
