Thing is

There are religious ceremonies known as marriage, one man, one woman.

Then there is civic unions. I didn't know anyone opposed to civic unions. Many catholics, who see marriage as a sacrament, had little problem with civic unions, I don't care how old they were.

Most orthodix, conservative religious believers will continue to have a hard time with the word "marriage" when it comes to a civic union. Why the word civic union is not good enough for those who want LEGAL benefits from state.. I don't know. God has nothing to do with it, no where in any scripture does it describe honmosexual unions, which are the death penalty in many coubtries, like Iran.
