Check out this sentence from the just-adopted 2016 party platform-Texas Republican Party :



Grammar police says that sentence implies: "Homosexual behavior has been ordained by God in the Bible."

The 2014 version of the platform used a plural instead of a singular (changing the meaning entirely).
Homosexuality- Homosexuality is a chosen behavior that is contrary to the fundamental unchanging truths that have been ordained by God in the Bible, recognized by our nationís founders, and shared by the majority of Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, in public policy, nor should family be redefined to include homosexual couples. We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin. Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values.

Grammar error or latent behavior?

Its common knowledge that TX is populated by steers and queers
If you live in TX and you are not a steer, well, then you are a queer
Thank you TX republican party for confirming that :-)

I wonder when the Texas GOP plans to leave the 1950s and rejoin the modern world.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

I would not expect anyone with views as hateful and bigoted as those to be able to use English properly.
In order to insult me, I must first value your opinion

All it is really saying is people should not be criminally punished because intolerant gays disagree with someone who does not support and accept their lifestyle choice.

No it doesn't
"Homosexuality is a chosen behavior"
Its not a chosen behavior.
"Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle."
Its lawful and acceptable by the majority of the country
That's intolerance on the right

So if you use the term "family of choice" you should be punished?

It is a chosen behavior. You pick who you have a relationship with. The fact that homophiles say it is not chosen shows they know something is wrong with it as a choice. As for intolerance. gay activists are the most intolerant people out there.
