I know a guy who cheated on his wife for several years with various women from Ashley Madison because he was raised that divorce wasn’t an option. Very religious family, did missionary work. But then his parents got divorced. He finally got a divorce right before Xmas. I don’t understand how it would be okay to cheat but not okay to divorce?!?!

My guess - he could be forgiven for adultery and not for divorce. But that's from a formerly Roman Catholic perspective.

Wow, that is fucked up.

Do we need to know every sin of the theists?

Well that's really screwed up.

Tells you a lot about the real ethics of many religious leaders.

Man, for a supposed man of god that dude is a mega hypocrite, shattering commandments left and right, coveting and murdering and leaving nothing but carnage in his wake

People just do not learn from history do they? He needs to be head of state not just head of church. Hernry VIII headed up his own church and then had his wives heads lopped off.

Better still, don't be religious, don't marry so no need for divorce. No need to murder wives.

Well ... that's certainly one way to get out of a marriage ... and into a cell.
