A couple of assumptions here actually:
- That what they are doing will stop marriage equality.
- That anyone else in the world cares if they get divorced.
Adding to the irony is the fact that it’s unchristian to divorce:
Jesus then answers, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery” (Matthew 19:7-9).
