http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1060184038 (Court: CA gay-marriage ban is unconstitutional)When marriage, the definition of which is "a man and a woman as husband and wife", which it was from its inception and is now all over the planet, occurs 99.9999999+ percent of the time and an aberration erroneously referred to as marriage occurs 00.0000001- percent of the time, the aberration in no way redefines the word marriage. It would be idiodic to think that it does.Marriage is and always has been in the time-honored cultural tradition a committed union "between a man and a woman as husband and wife". That's the definition of marriage, the definition of marriage, and that's a given no-brainer, not a matter for rational conjecture. Historical tiny anectdotal occurences of ignorant or brash violations do not in any way change the definition of marriage.
Erroneously referring to something as marriage does not make that aberration marriage. I mean, you can't just call a goose a duck and expect Websters to change the definition of duck! That's crazy thinking.
Those aberrations that you cite will have to use a different word than "marriage" to describe them, as they are simply not marriage.
Your way of thinking is like saying there are 99.99999999+ generally acceptable types of human behavior but murder occurs comparatively 00.0000001- percent of the time, therefore murder must be classified as acceptable human behavior. Ludicrous.
back in the late 1960s/early 1970s gay leaders began the brainwashing process of coining and inundating the media with oxymoronic phrases like "SSM", "same-sex marriage", gay-marriage, hoping that in a couple generations people who found such phrases crazy back then would today be used to them, though they remained oxymoronic. Indeed, sadly there are a number of people now who suffer from such mind-control, and scarily they are in high places.
CA's Prop 8 functioned in a way to bring people to their senses who had been brainwashed that the word "marriage" ludicrously meant in addition to a man and a woman as husband and wife.
The question now is whether enough brainwashing mind-control damage has been done to cause a huge wrong to occur, as I presented in the linked post here.
