Here's an idea: when two people (same or opposite sex) come to the government and want all the perks and benefits of being "married", call it a "civil union". Let the churches call their unions "marriage"; they'll still have to come to the government to get their "civil union" (like they have to do anyway right now, except that the government calls it a "marriage" too, which is confusing because it isn't the same thing).

That would be my second choice. My first choice would be to continue to call the legal institution marriage, and let the churches come up with a new term for their version. I'd hate to tell my atheist friends that their marriages should be demoted to civil unions.
