Divorce Rates Among Conservative Christians vs. Atheists and Agnostics

Divorce Rates for Various Demographic Groups

The results will surprise you.

George Barna, president and founder of Barna Research Group, found divorce rates among conservative Christians were significantly higher than for other faith groups, and much higher than Atheists and Agnostics. According to the Dallas Morning News, the national study “raised eyebrows, sowed confusion, [and] even brought on a little holy anger.” This caused George Barna to write a letter to his supporters, saying that he is standing by his data, even though it is upsetting.

“While it may be alarming to discover that born again Christians are more likely than others to experience a divorce, that pattern has been in place for quite some time…”

The question is, why?
