7. my answer to that question

Because it is in the best interest of society to make policies which encourage long term, monogamous relationships.

Period.

An estimated 5 to 10% of the country engages in same-sex relationships. Marriage with its associated legal, financial, social and religious implications has historically been the best tool to reinforce long term relationships.

In my opinion, opposing same-sex marriage is one step away from endorsing promiscuity (not that there's anything wrong with prmiscuity if its your choice -- I just don't thing the gov't should encourage it).
