Ben Carson: I Have No Idea How Gravity Works, But Climate Change Is A Hoax

From October 2, 2015

From the article:

Listening to presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson talk is often slightly less pleasant than listening to someone drag a nail across a chalk board. Listening to him talk about science, ironically, is much, much worse. For instance, in a conversation with a voter at a town hall event at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, Carson (a retired neurosurgeon), forever killed the phrase, “What are you — a brain surgeon?” when referencing smart people.

Florida House Republicans Pass Bill Allowing Adoption Agencies To Ban Gay Parents

From, April 10, 2015

From the article:

Florida is pushing its very own “license to discriminate” law, and it’s not just pizza parlors and bakeries that will be affected. The state’s Republican-dominated House of Representatives has voted to give state-funded private adoption agencies the right to refuse to let gay couples adopt children.

Recently, the state (finally) did the right thing and repealed its flagrantly unconstitutional ban on allowing gay people from adopting children. Despite a court ruling in 2005 that noted its noxiously discriminatory nature, the law symbolically remained in the state constitution before being symbolically removed from it in March 2015. Not willing to let a good deed go unpunished, House Republicans puffed up their chests and decided to strike back. If gay people were legally allowed to adopt, then they would simply make it really hard for them to do so, by giving the agencies in charge of adoption the “freedom” to not help them.
