CIVIL UNION for all... gay straight, black, white, you get the picture
Advertisements [?]
like MANY OTHER WESTERN DEMOCRACIES currently do

Take this away from any kind of religious leader

No, not a license to marry, but a CIVIL UNION for all... granted by the STATE and necessary to pursue that religious necessary if that is your taste?

That will kill this for the fundies... their most critical meme (but that means I have to marry the gay in my church) will evaporate... that POWER will go away as well as the discussion of WHAT IS MARRIAGE which is happening in a civil arena... where religion does NOT belong. Yes this also means that something like this happens... my marriage certificate needs to read civil union certificate. It does not diminish this in one bit.

I know people don't want to get this, but that ceremony, performed by the state, falls under civil law, so calling it a cviil union is not a misnomer and let the churches hold the lilly white wedding they want to do, all the way to sunday... but only AFTER the State has performed its function.
