GOP Decree Implies Most Texans Are Gay

A statement issued by the Texas Republican Party this week appears to inadvertently proclaim that most Texans are gay. Due to questionable grammar, it also implies that homosexuality was “ordained by God in the Bible.” “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,” the party’s newly minted official statement on homosexuality reads. A local LGBT advocacy group pointed out Wednesday on Twitter that the flawed grammar sends a confusing message from the notoriously homophobic Texas Republicans. Grammar fanatics quickly concluded that a misplaced comma and the use of “has been” rather than “have been” conveys that all Texans are gay and homosexuality is ordained by God. The party has not yet commented on the situation.
