    On a scale of 1 to 10 how important is gay marriage?

    On a scale of 1 to 10 how important is gay marriage? 10 means of paramount importance. 1 means not important at all. This is compared to other issues.

    Your question is pretty vague. Politically? Personally? Comparatively? For example, for me, politically, it would probably be about a 9. Personally, because I am not gay, it would be about a 4. Comparatively, when I consider all other issues that are concerning, it would be about a 7.

    How important is it for news coverage. In other words, if you were working in the media with lots of other news to cover like the economy, the election, foreign policy, etc.

    Oh, that's a COMPLETELY different question. Seems like you are asking how much news coverage should GM get COMPARED to other things, such as economy, the election, foreign policy, etc. Is that correct?

    Yes, that's what I meant. A news organization has to make choices every day on what stories are most important -- what page of the newspaper it goes on if it's print, how much air time it gets if it's TV, etc.

    OK. Thanks for clarifying. All things being equal, especially if there is a court case or a ballot or legislative decision going on, compared to other issues, when it comes to the news media, I'd put it at a 5 or a 6. Certainly the economy, election, and certain foreign issues should have more coverage, but in regards to domestic issues, it should rank pretty high.

    For me? None. The issue is an idiotic created issue just like marriage in general. There is no point in marriage and the only reason people want marriage and government attached is so they can benefit. Nothing else needs to be said about it for me.

    I can respect that to a certain extent.

    I do agree with one of the libertarian positions, get government out of marriage all together, let government give civil unions to whoever wants them (consenting adults of course) and let whichever church wants to do the religious side do that.

    I think that would make everybody happy.

    Re: On a scale of 1 to 10 how important is gay marriage?

    Not long ago I got some stats on gay marriage in Massachusetts. The number of people taking advantage of SSM's legality there is tiny compared to the general population, and tiny compared to the estimated gay population.... IIRC it was something like one percent of gays had gotten hitched since SSM was legalized several years ago.


    Apparently there aren't very many gay people who actually want to get married.


    So since your scale doesn't go down to 0.1, I had to choose 1..... It just seems to be something that thousands of people want to TALK about for every ONE that wants to DO it.
