Consistent with the doom mongering.

"Civil unions would cover the necessary legal issues."

Except that they wouldn't. No civil unions for gays bill ever passed has provided the same set of rights as state marriage. And gay marriage opponents aren't pushing for a civil unions alternative in any case, so it's disingenuous to present this as an alternative.

Unless he means getting the state getting out of the "marriage" business entirely and offering identical civil unions to gay and straight couples alike... a proposition which I would support. In reality, state marriage IS a civil union... a union recognized by the civil authorities.
