    Sure, grant all those benefits and responsibilities equally without regard to sexual orientation.  I've got no problem with that.  But if the fundies want to claim marriage as their own, and prevent everyone else from living their lives, then expand civil commitment to include all benefits available currently under marriages, and then require everyone who wants those benefits, including straight people, to obtain a civil commitment document, without discrimination.  Then if people want to get married in a church, let them - but the actual benefits derive solely and equally from documents and status provided by government.
