Rep. Hostettler says Divorce is as Dangerous to Society as Gay Marriage

Hat Tip to Oddjob!

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana Congressman John Hostettler says divorce is as dangerous to society as gay marriage.

The Republican Congressman also told a gathering of clergy at Crossroads Christian Church in Evansville yesterday that churches are essential to strengthening families.

He calls marriage "the picture of Christian salvation."

He says any diminishing of marriage must be fought in public policy and that religious faith needs to have a greater presence in public policy decisions.

Hostettler has won a string of generally close elections in southwestern Indiana's Eighth District since he first won his seat in 1994 with strong support from religious conservatives.
