I have heard that those that oppose Gay marriage say its because its a threat to marriages. However-stats say the biggest threat to marriages are poverty and abuse. Why not spend time and energy on those topics rather than fighting gay marriage? I don't think I buy the whole "we do both" argument because the amount of energy being put into fighting gay marriage has to lessen the amount of time spent on other more pressing (in my opinion) issues. So-why is this the hot issue-why not poverty, abuse or other threats to marriage?

Bravo! I agree with you. It's a shame that they would rather complain about gays getting married then to really do something about Abuse considering the possibility of death from it.

POVERTY breed more POVERTY, same with abuse, they are cyclical....They are what is TRUELY bringing DOWN entire CITIES...and both many times lead to DRUG ABUSE....
The answer, POLITICIANS don't care what's REALLY affecting people. (most) They care about getting elected then re-elected. They are using the playbooks of the past which they KNOW will work...and many Americans are too caught up in the politics game to STOP them and SAY......THIS is the problem......STOP DISCUSSING ABORTION and GAY MARRIAGE and TALK ABOUT WHAT IS ACTUALLY AFFLICTING OUR COMMUNITIES

It isn't the "evil" media, its the "evil" politicians, thats what they stump on...and they deomonize the POOR, the GAYS & anyone who isn't the majority ...its a numbers game to them....and it breeds contempt and hate for their flock
