Get a BS, reject the same
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!
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.
