The author identifies another layer of problems for social conservatives once SSM becomes a reality. If it were just a matter of not forcing churches to perform SSM it would be pretty easy to resolve. But what happens when a private religious organization (e.g. a catholic hospital) wants to provide private insurance coverage for employees and their spouses? Will they be forced to provide it for same sex spouses or will they be allowed to use their own view of marriage to define their benefit program?
