Yes! Please! Take your ball and go home!

"out of the marriage business" is exactly what governments should be getting.

I'm deeply fond of the separation of legal ritual from religious ritual.

It says that they'll continue with civil unions. Is it just a name change? (i.e. will it still be something where you'll get a government paper saying that you're marricivilly-unionized?) If so, I don't see what difference it makes in practical terms.

I really don't understand why people who have religious beliefs that disallow same-sex marriage are so up in arms over this. The churches are neither compelled to perform nor to recognize them. How does one justify an attitude of, "My religion forbids this so *nobody* can have it?"
