Why do so many well-meaning people base all their politics on issues that affect only a few?


Abortion and same sex marriage affect only a small percentage of Americans. Why do so many well-meaning people base all their political choices on only these two issues when there are many other issues that affect people every single day (education, healthcare, infrastructure, defense, etc.)

    Here's hoping. I feel like my religion has been hijacked by one or two specific causes that are easy to support because they cost most people nothing. That kind of cause is what I call Lazy Christianity. I'm about to write a hub on it.

    Issues may seem to affect only a few, but, for instance, blood in Benghazi cries for justice. What it matters now is important, as with other issues people dismiss because of a broken moral compass. Resolve that and everything else becomes easier.

    I agree. And our differences are so divisive and when you think about it, they involve a very small percent of our population.

    And I think they are failing to keep the main thing the main thing. It is not a Christian's job to convict others of their perceived sin. It is their job to do the work Jesus commanded them to do: feed the hungry, tend to the sick, care for needs.
