Get a BS, reject the same

by Jeremy Hooper

Even more reason to encourage good grades:

The education level of Florida voters, not race, best predicted support for the state's gay marriage ban, according to a new University of Florida study rebutting conventional wisdom.

The study found education was about five times as important as race in determining whether a county's residents favored the ban. The results contradict claims that newly registered black voters who cast ballots for Barack Obama were a socially conservative group that can be credited with passing the ban.

Well duh. Our organized opposition's Math department says that "Marriage = One Man + One Woman," and their English dept. defines the phrase "marriage protection" in a way that has nothing to do with treating your spouse with respect (and everything to do with discriminating against gays). It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that rocket scientists would be more likely to call Shenanigans on these kinds of teachings!

Stay in school, kids. We (and the constituion) need you!

Your thoughts

wait i must be really tired because i don't get it. are you saying the more educated the more likely they are to be for gay marriage or against it?

Mrs M: More education = less likely to vote against gays. But that's not what *we* say -- it's what the study says.

Ah, that's what I thought. I'd like to think that it's true. Thanks for answering hon!

I have always said that the right want to keep their children uneducated in order to brain wash them. Seems I was right.
