Texas GOP's Fabulous Platform

Via Tengrain, we have the hilarious grammatical error which has led the Texas GOP to declare that homosexuality is a Biblical mandate from God:


“Homosexuality is a chosen behavior that is contrary to the fundamental unchanging truths that has been ordained by God in the Bible, recognized by our nations founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.”


Uh, dumbasses, 'has' refers back to 'homosexuality', not 'truths'. It's always funny to see stupid bigots hoist on their own petard. At any rate, the Texas GOP platform seems to corroborate the premise of songwriter Ned Sublette's song Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other, most famously interpreted by Texas native son Willie Nelson:





Oh, Texas GOP, you are funny to outsiders, but you must be terrifying the locals.

Oops.

These things usually written, chopped up, and written again by committee and then passed by a room full of people all at once, so I'm sure there are other mistakes in there.

I'm moderately surprised that a majority of Texas Republican state convention delegates think a party platform is the right place to interpret scripture and bring divine judgment down on the heads of an entire demographic.

What did the Log Cabin Republicans say?

Grammar and Grimoire and Gramarye, all the same word. Syntax is just a form of EVIL BLACK MAJICK.

'Glamour' too, another corrupted version of 'grammar'.
