Here's what people don't seem to understand, though: There are benefits with marriage. Right now, if two couples -- one heterosexual, one homosexual -- each had one person who was in the hospital. The heterosexual couple can be together, the homosexual couple can't even see eachother. Why? The heterosexual couple was married.
There are more (tax benefits, what happens in case of sudden death, etc, etc.), and that's the real injustice. A SECULAR government can't give a certain part of the population benefits while excluding another part "because the bible says so".
