Supporters and opponents of a ballot initiative that would outlaw same-sex marriage in California have funneled $41.2 million into the race, more than the combined total spent in the 24 states where similar measures have gone before voters since 2004.
Campaign finance figures show supporters of the gay marriage ban have taken a significant lead in fundraising even though Proposition 8 has lagged in public opinion polls. ProtectMarriage.com reported taking in $25.4 million through Sept. 30 of this year compared to the $15.8 million in donations raised by the main committee opposing the measure.How nice that both sides of this matter has raise over $25 million dollars, yet as a group or people we can raise that kind of money for any other cause as fast as this cause. Why can we work this hard to help homeless shelters and local food banks. To help local free clinics to keep their doors open.
Do we have our priorities in order? It's funny that we place food drives and homeless at the bottom of our daily concern why we place Marriage at the very top.
