Part of the difficulty that our society has in dealing with this problem is the fact that we have invested what is in essence a religious ceremony with civil rights, and therefore in denying same sex couples the right to marry (the right to engage in a religious ceremony with civil rights) we deny them these civil rights. Unfortunately, I believe that we therefore need to give marriage back to the churches - we should have only a civil commitment ceremony (call it what you will) and tell people that want to "get married" that the church is down the street.
