In short, you're trying to say that my marriage - performed by a government official with both participants not considering anything about God - shouldn't be called marriage. It is some lesser thing. To denote its lesser status, you wish to call it a 'civil union' instead.

If you don't want to share the word 'marriage' such that it encompasses both your religious understanding and my secular understanding, you can re-label your religious understanding as 'religious unions' (or whatever.) You don't get to re-label mine just because you don't want to share anymore.



it is interesting that the religious don't worry about all sorts of non-religious marriage being called 'marriage'..
just some complaining about some
