Matheson didn't answer

I recently sent some questions to Scott Matheson. Today I received a response. It was a lengthy response, but there were no answers in it. He didn't even acknowledge my questions.

I asked him:

Do you have a position on civil unions? Are you open to the possibility of any form of same-sex civil union in Utah?

Would you oppose all efforts to prohibit civil unions by amendment rather than statute?

Do you agree with some lawyers that the word "union" in Amendment 3 implies a sexual aspect to a relationship?

I was trying to ascertain whether his reason for being against line two of the amendment is truly because of wording, or if he disagrees with it on principle. I want to know where he stands. Why won't he answer?
