Good article. But the bigger problem, it seems to me, is that the Church by and large appears to have no problem with "adulterous" marriages. So you and your spouse aren't happy? Just get a divorce, find someone new, and get remarried—you'll live happily ever after. What most people don't realize is that the Early Church (i.e., in the first few centuries after the Resurrection) understood the Scriptures much better than we do today. And what was their policy on divorce and remarriage? Marriage is for life—no exceptions. If you divorced and then remarried, you were excommunicated from the Church. You could separate from your spouse—permanently, if necessary—but you could not remarry while your spouse was still alive. Anyway, so when it comes to "extramarital" sex, divorce and remarriage seems to be the biggest problem of all in today's permissive modern Church. There's a Web site called cadz.net that seems to have an excellent handle on how the Early Church understood the issues of marriage and divorce.

No extra-marital sex? Who is going to be left to deliver the sermon? Who is going to be left to sing in the choir? And, most importantly... who will be able to occupy the pews?
