NAME: Zach Burnett, Kentucky
TITLE: A proposal to eliminate marriage as an available form of legal contract recognized by the government.
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: Federal and State Marriage Laws, United States citizens
SUMMARY: “Many people object to the rights of homosexuals to marry because the Bible defines marriage as a holy union between a man and a woman. … The easiest way to solve the issue is to do away with marriage as a legal contact recognized by the government and transfer all of the rights, privileges, and responsibilities related to marriage to a new legal contact, which will be known as a civil union. Couples may still be “married” as recognized by the church, but will be recognized as a “civil union” by the government.”
