      I'm old enough to remember when most Christian churches were so anti-divorce (something Jesus DID condemn while saying NOTHING about sexual orientation) that they wouldn't perform or recognize 2nd marriages. In my childhood in the '60s, most divorced-and-remarried couples got their second wedding ceremonies at courthouses.  Conservative Christians (and conservative Jews, for that matter) did like divorce and remarriage, and a few even tried to get stricter divorce laws, but they didn't claim they were being religiously persecuted. They understood the difference between church teachings and civil law.
