Grammar Nazis have occupied the territory of a Texan GOP Policy Statement by pointing out the myriad of flaws in said Policy...


& it's hilarious.
www.rt.com...


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 [sic] founders, and shared by the majority of Texans."





In response, grammarians agreed that this would be a valid understanding of the phrase, also adding that there should be an apostrophe in “nations” and that by using "has been," the statement gives the impression that homosexuality has been ordained by God.



You heard it in Texas first...
Homosexuality has been ordained by God Himself.


All because of a comma placement, Texas has been labelled a majority Gay by the GOP themselves.

The Texas GOP refused to comment on the mistakes.
F# Tards.

Drill sergeant nasty from full metal jacket was right?!

This probably speaks more to the educational system in the Unites States and specifically Texas more than anything else. Thanks for the fun read.

I think the criticism is inaccurate.
Once "has been" is corrected to "have been", it is clear enough that the participles "ordained", "recognised" and "shared" are all attached to the word "truths".
Even better, "truths" could be amended to "truth".

Make sure that you don't accuse Texas Republicans of being bigots or theocrats.
