a terrific civil union/marriage compromise

I have found an article in the Huffington Post from a Baptist minister regarding civil unions and marriage pertaining to everyone, not just gays. I completely agree with his idea. Here’s the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tony-campolo/a-possible-compromise-on-_b_826170.html?ref=fb&src=sp He talks about how the government should have nothing to do with “marriage” as it pertains to God, and how the church should have nothing to do with the legality of who can marry who in a civil union. If you want a church wedding, you file the civil union paperwork, then go have a church bless your union. If not, then you file the paperwork and that’s it. Churches can keep their noses out of the legality of it, and the government can keep their noses out of the religion of it. Perfect! I’m sure that the “christian right” will still find some problem to have with it, but it will be none of their concern at that point. IF YOU DON’T WANT A GAY MARRIAGE, THEN DON’T MARRY SOMEONE OF THE SAME GENDER!
