contractual nuptials

Rand Paul fails on marriage equality, with this CNN interview:

"I don't care who you are, what you do at home or who your friends are, where you hang out, what kind of music you listen to. What you do in your home is your own business. That's always been who I am. I am a leave-me-alone kind of guy."

"But not when it comes to marriage," Bash noted.

"Well, no, the states will end up making the decisions on these things," Paul replied. "I think there's a religious connotation to this. I also believe people ought to be treated fairly under the law. I see why if the marriage contract conveys certain things, that if you want to marry another woman, you can do that and have a contract.

He's sounding like a typical right-wing weasel, suggesting that same-sex couples should be satisfied with "contracts" instead of marriage certificates.

Does he really believe that marriage for some and contracts for others is an acceptable solution?

Should the officiant's announcement "I now pronounce you party one and party two" be the highlight of a same-sex ceremony?
