Very simple, my answer was long winded. In both a secular and faith union, there are witnesses and a signatory. The only reason we would need to have any government recognition at all is for tax and benefits implications, so why not just eliminate the governments status bases in the tax code or apply the equal protections clause to all sanctioned unions.And apparently the only difference is that one is sanctified by a "church" and one is not. I'm not sure the law has any business in that argument. Which leaves us with everyone's having a "civil union" and some choosing to call that union "marriage." What's to stop someone calling his/her relationship a "marriage" if they wish? Is that a question for the law?
No, I wouldn't be surprised, but I asked you for some backing to your claim and you've given none. A general suspicion of all humanity means little.
