God created marriage and man decided to get involved with it even though it has always been a Christian institution. Submitting that we should not force our views on the Californian population because "not all of them are Christian" would be akin to submitting that it would be ok for the government body to get involved with communion. They would decide who is and who is not worthy to receive and create a 'license' for communicants. Then one day they decide that ALL people irregardless of their beliefs or standing have the 'right' to communion.
Government has hijacked marriage. It was never theirs. Not that long ago, a 'license' was not even needed. You registered family marriages in the family Bible and that was that. It was accepted. Births registered in a family Bible are still acceptable as 'birth certificates' in many parts of the country.
The word 'marriage' has been polluted and diluted by man, vis a vis government inteference. Taking a so-called non-judgemental stance on a Christian institution is a non-starter. That would be like saying you believe a license for a Bar Mitsvah is required and anybody can perform one and anyone can become Bar Mitsvahed.
This is exactly what human government has done to marriage.
