    Well than, that's very...... special. Special? Probably too kind a word.

    While I appreciate that others are entitled to their own views, saying that the reason for misconstruing marriage in such a way due to... GMO of all things is fairly ridiculous.

    I don't support gay marriage at all, and even I think that's a dumb connection to make.

    I'm currently drafting a strong response.

    Well, check down Dan Hall as a man that's spectacularly fucking stupid in multiple ways. This guy's really not so keen on gay people or science, huh?

    What is even more perplexing, is that his district even voted against the marriage ban in MN. This dude apparently has no clue how to represent his electorate.

    he said marriage in it's current state is the institution that holds things together. without it, these things, such as genetically modified organisms, will bring about a worse future.

    He's saying that if gay marriage is legalized, GMOs are certain to destroy us. /facepalm

    This just barely rates above the senator that stupidly asked if (e.coli i think it was?) could evolve into a human

    That's embarrassing... Just one more generation. I believe this type will not be in this kind of work anymore by then.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Hall_(politician)

    A Republican, he is the CEO of Midwest Chaplains, a former director of the Minneapolis YMCA, and a former Christian school principal.[1][2]
    Oh. I see.

    In April 2011, Hall criticized social integration and desegregation, saying "I watched Minneapolis get destroyed, so I not only didn’t want my kids in the school system. I took them out of Minneapolis because they ruined our neighborhoods with integration and desegregation."[6]
    Fuck you Dan Hall. How is this prick even remotely qualified to hold any position other than his previous religious jobs?

    So... Why should we take someone seriously if they don't even have a basic grasp of grammar?

    MN is very strongly in support of gays. The ones who aren't don't voice it often unless you're out in the middle of the sticks. He campaigned on equality which makes it that much worse.

    TBH I blame the voters for re-electing a pro-segregationist. What can you expect from a brainless bigot?

    “I watched Minneapolis get destroyed, so I not only didn’t want my kids in the school system. I took them out of Minneapolis because they ruined our neighborhoods with integration and [de]segregation.”



    EDIT: got beaten to it

    Because he's a senator and what he says and does can and will impact people more than you're average person who can't use grammar.

    Which, really, is absolutely mindboggling. How the fuck do people that stupid get elected to public offices? I suppose because they're representative of their electorate.

    What if that guy and this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8gFXt5MFY8) got together?

    Did he just outright say he's a racist? How the hell is this guy allowed to hold office?
