I thought this was an Onion headline, but no. Seems senility has brought him a bit of sanity. Now if we can just get him on board with gay rights...

I think his spokesperson later "clarified" that he didn't mean decriminalizing it, but rather endorsed letting people enter faith-based programs rather than go to jail.

Me, I think I'd choose jail.

It's like the spokesperson is kind of trying to backpedal or cover.

Fuuuuck

Oh well, it sounded cool. I hate when fundies and conservatives are all for something awesome like decriminalizing weed, but only if people agree to bow down to Jesus. What happened to just doing the right thing instead of making people pay with religious loyalty?
