I had heard of it, and I think that's pretty cool. I'm sure it won't stand, but maybe it will start some legal battles or something.

Interesting. I really hope it sticks.

What gets to me is how the Church is outraged by it when it has nothing to do with them since it's not even a religious union anyways.
