:::You're right. I'm sure he embraced two of the most ridiculous notions we've ever come across based on logic and reason. Strokes can affect the way you think. Your political views are an important aspect of a person's thinking; maybe even the most important. Why would they be exempt from such changes? [[User:AngusT|AngusT]] 19:58, 17 June 2013 (EDT)
::::Exactly what I was about to write. If stroke impairs one's judgement then surely there's a very likely chance that a stroke victims will make bad political decisions. - [[User:Markman|Markman]] 19:59, 17 June 2013 (EDT)
:::::The articles you cited states that strokes can impair cognition, and/or spark personality issues. It does not say anything about politics. Political views are created from a variety of factors, and a stroke seems like a very imprecise factor in changing a person's political views, especially on something as specific as gay marriage.
