        It's always incumbent on us (the gays) to accomplish this (civil unions for all) - because it's the word "marriage" that is the sticking point and in order to placate the religios we gotta choose a different word for our family arrangement then everybody would be happy, and non-religious hets could take advantage of civil unions, too, which they're supposedly dying to do - this argument gets repeated nearly every time same sex marriage comes up and I always think - If civil unions are so important to You (you who tell Me they are so important I should put aside my desire to be recognized under Existing law and create a whole new parallel system of laws) then WORK FOR IT yourself. Lead the charge! And stop telling me to do all your work.
