Separating Church & State

The debate over gay marriage is a stupid one. Marriage is a religious term from the Church. What we as citizens must do and in so doing make our voices heard, is to demand the eradication of the term marriage from all law and replace it with the phrase "civil union". If two people want a "holy" civil union then they should by all means get married in a church or wherever else their minister will perform the ceremony. Otherwise a Judge should perform civil union ceremonies unless he or she is an ordained minister. It is the simple and complete and by the way constitutionally mandated solution to the growing controversy. What are the ramifications of doing this constitutionally mandated change? Who cares! It is the right thing to do and it is constitutional!
