The unvarnished laws of politics dictates that politicians only champion an "oppressed" minority when it provides them some leverage to do something they could not get support for under any other circumstances. In the case of "gay marriage;" -- an issue that will ultimately provide "equality" for some infinitessimally small microcosm of the already minute gay community -- the political advantage is provides out would-be masters is a wedge issue to allow them to undermine (read infringe upon) the 1st Amendment right to free religious expression and practice. When the state has the power to tell hundreds of millions of Americans that the word "marriage" no includes sexual deviants, that is a whole lotta new power.
