Replacing His clear teaching as found in Holy Scripture and by the unbroken tradition of fifteen centuries with their own opinions, the founders of the principal Protestant denominations began by permitting divorce on the sole ground of adultery.
For while Holy Matrimony is in the nature of a contract, and Penance in the nature of a judicial process, the three first‑mentioned take the form of a religious consecration of the recipients.
