Jesus' Teaching on Divorce

In verses 11-12, Jesus teaches that anyone who divorces and has an ex-spouse who is still living ought not remarry.

Anyone in this circumstance who remarries commits adultery.

If the church is comfortable teaching that people who are homosexual must abstain from sexual activity, then why doesn't it teach that divorcĂ©es ought not remarry?  That would appear to be consistent.

Why isn't theu church consistent on sexual matters, especially when Jesus' teaching is explicit?

Is it convenience?  A misapplication of Jesus' teaching on marital unfaithfulness in Matthew 5:32?
