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!

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.
