Meanwhile, your calls for "no marriage for anyone" is taking marriage from people who have it, all because you don't want gays to have it, too. If you had your way, I wouldn't be able to have a heterosexual marriage because I'm not religious. You're still creating a secondary, lesser status. That we've been calling it marriage for centuries means that any separate status, called anything else, will not be equal, no matter how equal you claim it to be. You have no right to take that from me, and the government has no legitimate interest in doing so. Likewise, the government has no legitimate interest in taking it away from gay couples.
