Ah, Indiana. We're #1! In divorced people!

IN_5807.gifWayne County - home of Richmond - made the top spot for the highest proportion of divorced residents in the United States. Floyd and Madison counties also made the top ten list.

So the next time you hear the religious right in Indiana screeching that they need to save marriage, remind them that they need to save it from themselves. After all, evangelical Christians have the highest divorce rate out of all religious groups too.

I'll be on WXNT's Abdul in the Mornings tomorrow at 7am to talk about the divorce findings with Ryan McCann of the Indiana Family Institute. Tune in and call us and share your opinion on the latest census numbers.
