Apart from it being a Religious term (in the Bible, it mentions that marriage is between a husband and wife, being man and woman). That's part of the base scripture.

The bible uses a lot of words. That doesn't make them all religious terms. You can have non-religous marriage.

A possibly less confrontational way round this is to just start a religion that does't have the figures that have said things in conflict with what you want to happen, and go with that, and its marriage systems and so on.

Do you realize that many gay people are religous, go to gay-friendly churches, and have commitment ceremonies in those churches?

A rose by a different name... is it really so important how you call something? A name should reflect its content, it's not content by itself.

Names matter. It's the reason the Patagonian toothfish was renamed to the Chilean Seabass, because no one wanted to eat a toothfish. Names affect people psychologically. Having different names for marriage and civil unions will automatically make them different.
