Nobody is trying to change what your marriage is. You'll still be married to a woman. Your sons will still be free to marry women. You, being in California, should realise that. I'm assuming your marriage didn't go POOF when the first two lesbians legally married each other in that state.
[loud buzzer]

The existing marriage definition has been in place unchanged for millenniums.

Now there’s a campaign by the left wing to redefine it.

You need to articulate your arguments a little better, if you have any that is.

Yup. That's the mold.

Guys do guy stuff and girls do girl stuff.

You call it enculturation.

I call it natural.
In reality, pants are more comfortable but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy wearing dresses. Don't you think you'd enjoy wearing a low-cut dress, spikes and lacy panties just to see what it feels like ??..
Nope.

I've never had a desire to do such a strange thing.

You still didn't answer my question.

You need to avoid it?

It’s not about legal marriage as it is about getting the children.

Children are already a fragile commodity.

Suicide and criminal conduct involving juveniles is going to skyrocket out of control. Way beyond what it is now.

Hey, Teacher, leave those kids alone!

Pink Floyd’s “Last Brick on the Wall” lyrics.

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! teachers! leave the kids alone!
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! teacher! leave us kids alone!
All in all you're just a another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just a another brick in the wall.

I can think of no pathway that could lead me to believe a deity claim over natural explanations. I've got two categories of explanations that would be applicable to any perceptions I might have.

Yep, thats the ridiculous reason why Dave is a Creationist Cult Member & Troll today. He hit his head so hard, he thought god was talking to him.
When Dave tells you this story, he'll write an essay about how spiritually significant, not dying was to him and why he alone is special and nobody else is.
This is how the ignorant Creationists justify their thought patterns - lying to themselves to keep their delusion alive.
Dave makes a stop in the Atheism four every week, to remind Atheists that they too can see god, if they are involved in a similar serious accident, which compromises brain function.

You're really not making much sense, Tide.

You're saying that you don't rule out the possibility of a god but you can't fathom a way that a god could prove itself to you.

"Maybe advanced technology", or something like that.

It's like you'd accept an advanced alien technology posing as a god before you accepted that god is actually a god.

To me, that means your mind is closed in that regard.

Religious molds are only for people of religion.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
I'm no longer racist because the mold has changed.
Your mentality remains, however.

I see you couldn't define what is masculine or feminine as it pertains to women or men. It's okay. This is why you and those like you will not prevail in this matter.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Stupid Topix Atheists! and their stupid "define" questions.....
We communicate with words and sentences. If you can't communicate what you mean, you have no meaning to communicate.

Your disapproval or approval as far as how people should act mean little if you can't supply a definition for what you mean.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
I neither approve or disapprove, I'm mery commenting on it.
Good, then you'll understand when the current issue of basic human rights is resolved. You don't have to approve of it.

Just accept it.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Maybe you have disdain for people like me...
Here you go:

Verb: disdain
1. Look down on with disdain
2. Refuse with contempt

Noun: disdain
1. Lack of respect accompanied by a feeling of intense dislike
2. A communication that indicates lack of respect by patronizing the recipient
WordWeb Pro 7.02

The second definitions in both instances apply.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Nope. I've changed the mold, remember?
So you say. What is masculine for a woman and feminine for a man, again?
RiversideRedneck wrote:
It's now acceptable and you have to accept it.
Saying so, doesn't make it so - for everyone else - unless it actually is the same treatment for everyone else.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
You're comparing legal rights to gender qualities.
It was said women couldn't make the right decisions when it came to voting, too.

A gender quality was assigned to a legal right by people who preferred the old way. The "mold", they preferred, assigned a gender to a legal right.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Maybe I can marry my car some day. Maybe.
Sure. I won't stand in your way, and unlike a living human being, you can tell it to do just exactly what to do. You won't infringe upon the rights of the car at all.

Since it isn't a human with legal rights.

It should be directed at those opposing SSM using the argument that RR seems to be making. It's hard to tell with him sometimes because he's inarticulate.
