What is really bothering US evangelical Christians? Hint: it is not adultery

Flynt says evangelical Christians are mainly mobilising against the sins they either do not want to commit (homosexual acts) or cannot commit (undergoing an abortion, in the case of men). They turn a blind eye toward temptations, such as adultery and divorce, that interest them. In 2010, the Southern Baptist Convention passed a resolution calling the rising incidence of divorce among its members a “scandal”. A Pew Research Center study in 2015 found that evangelical protestants in the US were more likely to be divorced or separated than Catholics, Jews, Muslims or atheists.
