    Can't get a marriage certificate. That's it.

    A Boston Red Sox fan can't sit on the 3rd base line at Yankee Stadium for their home games , either. What's your point?

    Nothing. The point is that marriage is the legal document that grants state and federal recognition of legal spousehood and all the rights, benefits, and even responsibilities that come with it.

    Even when same sex couples are allowed to enter into legal marriages, they nor anyone else can force any church, mosque, synagogue, temple, or other religious place/person to perform a wedding ceremony for them. (Despite popular belief, the ceremony is called a "wedding" not a marriage. The union itself is a marriage, the ceremony announcing, establishing, and/or celebrating that union is a wedding.)

    Baseball is not a government recognized institution granting legal recognition of rights, marriage is. Baseball has nothing to do with the government or rights, marriage does.

    If you live in Colorado, California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada a union also gives you all those rights.. This is going full circle. Signing off (until you've got more).

    Washington legalized same sex marriage in November. California legalized a couple of days ago with the demise of Prop 8. Nevada and Oregon already have bills/initiatives in the works to just allow same sex couples to marry and one is being pushed in Colorado. Other states had/have same sex civil unions as well, and all either have already gone to allowing same sex couples to marry or are pushing for it, including New Jersey.

    No, unions don't, not fully. They are not equal to marriage.

    That question will be fielded by the state if homosexual challenges to state marriage definitions ever reach the Supreme Court. The state will then get to make it's argument regarding it's effect.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
