The only arguments I have ever heard against gay marriage are "The Bible says its wrong" and "Its not natural." What are other arguments against gay marriage?

I dtiscussed this with my dad, and what he said is that Catholics aren't against gay couples, it's just that the word marriage is sacried within the religion. It's like the religious binding between a and a women and therefore can't be used for non Catholics or for anything but a man or women. He said that the issue with the word marriage is that it's meaning has changed over the years to mean the action of binding two people together instead of it's original religious meaning, which is why he says a gay marriage should be called a civil union. So, if I were to say are you for gay marriage he would say no, that is against his religion, but he is all for gay civil union.
I don't know if this helped, but when I discussed it with him --I know almost nothing about religion-- I was mad at first and it took him about an hour to explain his reasonings to me.
I don't think as many people are against the action as those against the word choice. I know that my dad said that most Catholics would say they are against gay marriage because of the meaning of the word marriage, although they would be all for the action of a gay civil untion.
