Rep. Louie Gohmert from Texas says he can prove same-sex marriage goes against nature. All he needs are eight gay men, a deserted island, and a couple of centuries.
While speaking before a group of impressionable young conservatives last week, Gohmert proposed a plan to prove, once and for all, that God intended marriage to be between one man and one woman by conducting a “science” experiment, an odd gambit for Gohmert, who flatly rejects sexual orientation science.
“We could take four heterosexual couples, married, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to sustain life,” he said. “Then take four all-male couples and put them on an island with all they need to sustain life, take four couples of women, married, and put them on an island, and let’s come back in 100 to 200 years and see which one nature says is the preferred marriage.”
There’s just one teeny tiny flaw in Gohmert’s experiment: The average life expectancy of a human being is approximately 80 years. So how does he plan on returning to check on things when the 100 to 200 years are up?
However, we do like the idea of living on a tropical island with a bunch of gay guys at the government’s expense. Now that would be an interesting experiment.
Gohmert also had some choice words for the Supreme Court, accusing the justices of usurping God by saying “forget what Moses said God said, forget what Jesus said God said, we’re God and you go by what we say!” No mention of the that little document known as the Constitution.
He also insisted Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg “ought to be impeached” for officiating over the weddings of same-sex couples.
Oh, and that Obama. Impeach him, too. You know, just because.
