Divorce Cited as #1 Concern of Pastors

A new study reported in the November/December 2004 issue of Facts & Trends magazine shows that of Protestant clergy in America, 43 percent of the pastors surveyed named divorce as the number-one threat to families in their communities, followed by a wide range of problems from materialism (36 percent) to marital infidelity to negative influences in the media (38 percent).

Ellison Research conducted the study using a representative sample of 695 pastors from across the nation. The researchers asked pastors to identify the three strongest threats to families in their own communities. After the top three threats cited, absentee fathers (24 percent) and families that lack a stay-at-home parent (22 percent) were among the top threats to the family most frequently named by pastors. Louisiana Family Forum sees Covenant Marriage as a key solution to divorce in Louisiana.
