You point out one of the points that seems to be glossed over by those who oppose SSM but approve of CU; if you include all of the legal rights and responsibilities of marriage in CU - and really, the law can only address those things - then what's the difference.

If, in the eyes of the law, marriage and civil unions afford exactly the same rights, privileges and responsibilities, what is the difference?

The word "marriage" carries other connotations than legal ones only in the context of religious affirmations of a marital union; and the law is necessarily silent on such issues.

This means that only those who approve of SSM and those who oppose SSM AND CU are being logically consistent.

Anyway... great posts on this subject. Keep it up.
