With all the crap that's going on in the world, why is this an important issue?

The 10th amendment delegates all powers not enumerated in the constitution to the states. The federal government currently has no power... over marriage. In other words, the only way they can limit it is if they first control it.
...Article 4 of the constitution which states, "citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states" which basically means that if someone gets a gay marriage in Massachusets they can go to Georgia and the state has to honor that marriage.

While I can't say I agree that gays should be allowed to marry, I am glad the proposed amendment failed. This should be left up to the individual states to decide.
