Tell the truth about California's radical new social policies. That's argument enough.
Keep marriage as is, one man and one woman.
It's already changed, Brian. 10 YEARS. It's not going away. You are going to have to deal with it like a big boy.

That's no excuse, Brian. You stay in school like a good little boy... and be sure to pay extra attention in government class. You have a test next week.

Same sex marriage is good for lawyers and bad for Christians targeted, invited to serve a same sex wedding and honestly declining to participate. Shame on you for suing your neighbors!

Sure, let's teach kids about an abnormal behavior that, if practiced by everyone, would completely make extinct the human race in just three generations. Homosexuals are not normal people nor are they even normal life forms for that matter.

Hard to believe that silly excuse continues to be offered as if it is possible everyone could ever magically become gay.

Yet it also ignores that the desire to be parents and include children in your family is probably at least somewhat innate, as many gay people, especially women, demonstrate. Reproduction is easy, especially for women, and the imagination demonstrates the brain is the largest human sex organ, as Dr. Ruth reminded us frequently. Over 50,000 children are being raised by same sex couples in California alone. Where there is a will, there is a way, and gay people can and do reproduce.

So even if everyone was gay, the species would continue, but with only planned and wanted children, without the large group of unwanted accidental children who are frequently resented, abused, abandoned, or even killed by their opposite sex parents.

I agree. Parents should be able to teach their kids anything they choose. Most CA Parents are so lazy and self obsorbed that they don't even prepare their kids for the basics or civilize their children to the point of being able to respect themselves or their Teachers enough to get much of anything out of what pass for Schools in "urban" areas.

The Idea of forcing Schools to Teach Gay subjects is a complete waste of precious class room time and patently offensive. Using Public Schools to Sexualize children at 5 or 6 years old is dispicable.

Excellent post! The "urban" culture is plagued by parents not being involved in the lives of their children's learning the basic concept of respect and motivating them to excel. I don't believe it is the availability of resources provided by particular districts, but the parents' "inability" to guide them in the right direction. Thier "inability" to guide them is another problematic issue that gravely needs to he addressed.

One doesn't need scientific evidence to know and believe that an anal canal is an exit and not entrance. Some things in life is a given, if you took Geometry you would know that....Peace...

And yet we don't use your belief to deny equal rights to opposite sex couples who do the same things, and in greater numbers.

Yet not all gay women and men practice what you imagine. There are other options, and sex is not a requirement of marriage.

What a mutually consenting adult couple does or does not do in private is no business of yours nor of the government. At least the government now officially understands this.

Teaching that families may include the opposite sex or the same sex, is not "sexualizing". Children are already aware on some level, of gender differences before they start school. Gender is a different issue from sexual behavior.

And they aren't "teaching gay subjects" beyond including the history of gay rights movement in the history of civil rights movements, and teaching tolerance for all of their fellow students, regardless of the makeup of the living situation of those fellow students.
