It's easier to call certain things "good" or bad" when you measure them in bulk. Statistics are great in terms of perspective, but judgments made on such information neglect the humanity of each individual case. All I'm saying is, if you're making tough decisions in your personal life, the last thing you want thrown in your face is a "you're in the same boat as all the other hell-bounders we shake our fingers at now and then" slight of stat.
For example: divorce. Sure, it's sad that divorce is a norm and a statistical majority, but no one who married with decent intentions and is undergoing a divorce wants to be condemned via being reminded of their "home-wrecking majority" status. Nothing is more obviously aimed at the reason Christians get a bad rep more than those pious little trinkets of condemnation they put in your stocking at every convenience.
