Which is Worse?

According to this article on Life Site News, the English bishops are more concerned about fighting poverty than they are about opposing gay unions. (They may, in fact, even accept gay unions, from the sound of it.) I wonder if these guys have ever read Matthew 10:28: "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell." Poverty seems to me like something which could conceivably kill the body, but does not have the power to kill the soul, while homosexual actions are sins of such a gravity that they will lead to the destruction of the soul and body in hell. So shouldn't Christians be more concerned about opposing the moral wrong of gay unions than about ending poverty? I'm not saying that it's bad to try to reduce poverty; however, the Church's primary goal needs to be the salvation of men's souls.
