11. "Marriage" is a religious institution -- only those who run the religion can change it...
A "Civil union" is a civil institution; therefore the collective (we, the people) can make the ultimate determination.

At least, these are the technical differences as I understand them and I think the difference is pretty obvious. I think that perspective is worth saying too.

FWIW, Paul Wellstone signed the DOMA as well.
