The Republican platform says: "Homosexuality is a chosen behavior that is contrary to the fundamental unchanging truths that has been ordained by God in the Bible, recognized by our nations founders and shared by the majority of Texans."

Grammatically, the sentence implies that "homosexuality" is shared by the majority of Texans, not "unchanging truths."

Copy editors have also pointed out that "has" should be "have" when referring to multiple truths and "nations" needs a possessive apostrophe.
