    ... and it's a massive mistake to allow them to usurp it.    

    The legal status of marriage belongs to the state. Marriage is a civil contract managed by the secular state and documented by a state license.   The only thing religion has are their faith-based rites and spectacles which are legally meaningless in the eyes of the state.  Let them have their priests and prayers and holy matrimonial rites, but do not allow them to grab marriage.
