The US has a thing called the separation of church and state. Gay marriage cannot be illegal based on religious belief because … the united states is not a catholic nation. Sociological standpoint?

A civil union is one thing and that is what I think gay couples should be able to get. Make it so that it affords them the benefits of a civil marriage in everything but name. This will make it so that it doesn’t change the basic definition of marriage which is what most traditionalists object to. With regards to religious unions, some religions accept same sex couples while most do not. This is up to them and they shouldn’t be shamed or pressured into becoming more inclusive. Separation of church and state is bilateral.
