The linked article tries to claim that the "Bible Belt" has a higher divorce rate than the national average. If you read the article carefully you learn how the liberals behind the hit piece on Christians have cherry-picked the comparisons they make.
It's all in the percentages.
What they compare are average divorce rates across the entire population. 11% of men get divorced in parts of the Bible Belt, while the national average is lower. Here's the sneaky part, people in the Bible Belt are also more likely to get married in the first place. People from liberal "blue states" are less likely to get married. If you compare divorce rates as a percentage of total marriages instead of a percentage of the population as a whole you find the Bible Belt has a LOWER divorce rate that liberal areas.
The divorce rates get pushed even LOWER if you compare divorce rates as a percentage of first marriages, excluding the divorces of people like Larry King who accumulate five or more ex-wives.
What this means is more people in the Bible Belt get married than people in blue states and their marriages are more likely to last until death. People outside the Bible Belt are more likely to never get married and instead live lives of debauchery and sin, exactly what Christians expect from people who reject Christ.
The next time someone tries to claim people in the Bible Belt are failing to live up to God's standards when compared to liberals, play close attention to their arguments and the numbers they use.
