We obviously have a shit ton of problems. The gay marriage thing is a big one to those it affects.
I'd argue that it has been a "big" issue to those it doesn't affect, the Christian Talevangelists trying to turn this nation into a Christian version of Iran.
There's a lot of rubes out there who are easily distracted by shiny objects, and the whole issue of gay rights-which should actually be a considered human rights issue BTW-seems to drive many of them into a frenzy.
This has been largely driven by RW hate radio and the rich media preachers that get revenue from the hatred. Most people just kind go
when you actually ask them about it. One of my favorites is to ask people who oppose the gay marriage issue is "How?.....How does allowing this actually affect you personally?" There is no real answer. They're just going by what they've been told by preachers and radio hosts with an agenda.
