Last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) repeated his call for a government study that would banish gay couples to a remote island, that he says would once and for all prove that gay and lesbian couples can’t have “what nature says is the preferred marriage.”
Gohmert delivered his bizarre plan at Liberty University, where he complained about the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision earlier this year and attempted to make the case that even people who do not believe in God can see that same-sex relationships are not natural.
“Let’s just take a totally secular approach to this,” he said. “Congress is good about having studies; how about if we take four heterosexual couples and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist and we take four couples of just men and put them on an island where they have all they need to survive and then let’s take four couples of just women and put them on an island and then lets come back in 100 years and see which one nature favors.”
Listen to his brilliant plan below:
As NCRM points out, Gohmert has “attacked traditional marriage, has said gay people cannot control their hormones, called homosexuality adultery, and warned that ENDA will ultimately force Christians to hire “Satan-worshipers” and “cross-dressers.”
