comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
@Marc Gravell - Yes it is part of the definition of marriage, at least from a Christian/Catholic perspective. For example, please read vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p2s2c3a7.htm

@Marc Gravell, marriage is at the very heart of the matter. Marriage is intended to give a stable place for procreation and raising of children/families. Gay couples by definition cannot pro create without 3rd party help and it is very debatable as to whether they provide a better environment for raising children. Opposite sex marriage is ordered towards children, regardless of whether the couple has them or not.

@Marc Gravell - I would add that many of those things you list are because marriage is generally ordered towards pro-creation and the raising of children. A healthy society needs to replenish itself, so it gives special perks to relationships that can produce offspring, in theory anyways.
