Congressman Wants Gays Banished To Deserted Island For “100 To 200 Years”

Gohmert.jpc_-350x245Rep. 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.

  • Jeff Scott

    Since we gays come from heterosexual couples, when will he decide that a new baby is gay and needs to be shipped out???

  • Ronald Galena

    The straight people will keep making gay people. He just doesn’t get it!

  • Sebastian Holiday

    A deserted island big enough for many millions of people? Where?

  • Edwin Wood

    After seeing his photo i don’t think he has anything to fear from the gay world. OPa

  • Pamela Daly

    Let’s just send Louie to said island and forget him

  • Darryl Moir

    Perhaps we should kill every parent who has a gay child acording to this logic.

  • Lainie Escovedo

    mmm… yes, I have list of women that need to come there with me, oooh thanks haters:)-

  • Randy Bowling

    And he is a elected official, and wonder why our country

  • Maurice Padilla

    Going to have to be a big island… Australia here we come!!!

  • jwtraveler

    We get our own island? Great!! I vote for Hawaii, Tahiti or Ibiza.

  • Harold Phelps

    Of course he is from Texas.

  • Xzamilio

    Oh, my god… this shit again? How many times do we have to keep saying to these ignoramuses (and he is looking more and more reptilian by the day)? The fact that we cannot reproduce has no bearing on our ability to care for children, nor is it a prerequisite to marry… or will all couples have to prove their fertility before getting a marriage license? And what does homosexuality say about us? Nothing. If you put all straight men on an island, or all straight women, or all barren heterosexual couples, or heterosexual couples that only had one gender from that point on, you’d have the same problem. That’s the beauty of “What ifs”… you can keep going and going and going.

    Enough of this bumbling buffoon trying to force his fundamentalist fire and brimstone Christianity and the BAHHH-BULL on the rest of America.

  • Ron Berry

    Another one opens his mouth and stupidity flow’s out WHO vote’s these assholes in to office

  • Pedro Bonetti

    didn’t they try that experiment? I think the answer is Australia. Look what became of it…So that would be a fabulous idea. A gay country..with all the lawyers, doctors, engineers, etc. We would be the controlling interest after a few years…

  • Hector Pagan

    Wtf how bout we banish his ass!!??

  • Xzamilio

    And why do the couples on the island need to be married? That is such an arbitrary characteristic… like your sperm and eggs won’t work unless there’s a ring on the finger.

    It’s also funny how GOP individuals like him will decry SCOTUS’s decision to implement nationwide marriage equality, but have NO problem with the Hobby Lobby ruling… or is it that SCOTUS members only need to be impeached when they go the other way? I do agree though that the justices should have terms.

  • Harold Phelps

    Will Shakespeare was right.

  • Ray Ivey

    A majority of people voted for him. Really?

  • Craig Shapiro

    Lets bring our mental health treatment into focus, this man is suffering.

  • Maxie Grant

    My parents were straight, Stupid Louie. PLUS, Stupid Louie, I have TWO kids. Moran!

  • Maxie Grant

    But aside from that Louie, I mean Stupid Louie, what the HELL gives you the right to take away my citizenship and banish me to a deserted island? Did you forget to fucking read the Constitution, Stupid Louie?

  • Ed Toribio

    Is he a blow up doll

  • Mark Stanley Bridges-Music

    How about Honalulu? I could stand to go there. There is already an island for the lesbians……LOL

  • Christopher Leiva

    This guy should just fucking kill himself. He offers nothing beneficial to society, and is in fact stealing oxygen with his bullshit rhetoric. Just kill yourself.

  • Justin Burgess

    That’s called Fire Island. And yeah, we’d all rather be there.

  • Alex Davidson

    Hell Yeah. Vacation. Parties. No more religious bigots to deal with. I’m down. And Daryl Moir, I like you’re logic but we need to straight people alive to create more homosexual human beings. :)

  • Ladbrook

    And if we had put Rush Limbaugh on a desert island with ALL of his wives, we could come back in 100 yrs and find absolutely nothing. NOTHING. The man is a serial husband and has no children to show for it.

    And as for Gomert, I’d rather be born to a crackhead streetwalker than have to grow up as his kid. If so, I’d at least have a chance of being adopted by a nice straight, gay, or lesbian couple that didn’t raise me to be an idiot asswipe.

    And for the record, Gomert has a bad case of I-suck-dick-in-bookstores in his voice when you listen to him on telly. Just sayin’.

  • Michela Steele

    It is amazing how many ignorant, backward, prejudiced relics remain in office. Just have to vote them out as soon as possible.

  • Sam Chavez

    Woo hoo! Party island!

  • George McSwain Jr

    Hilter treated the Jewish people the same way. The US did the same to the Indians. My country is made up of people of many backgrounds and religions. WE the PEOPLE are all created equal. This loon has no place in government.

  • Jayme Dohrn

    His loins would just sire a whole new generation, gay people aren’t hatched, they usually come from hetero parents. Duh!!!

  • Henry Collazo Canchola

    The island would be populated for life… Every time a straight person has a gay child, they would be forced to send them to the island. So it would be a never ending fabulous community… People are too stupid to realize this haha!

  • Robert Walsh

    Louie, Louie, Louie…the Republican gift that keeps giving. He is the intelligentia of their party. Woo Hoo! Yahoo!

  • Chris J Korbel

    I’ll take a 200 year vacation on Gay Island

  • Avery Alvarez

    I wonder if this is the same Gomert I saw on a Young Turks youtube clip a few years ago, around the last election, on film making a complete fool of himself.
    He was addressing some gathering of people, his voice was very high and it sounded like he was in distress. He was saying something like, “I have been a republican in times good, and I have been a republican in times bad..”
    The whole thing was a spectacle. Gomert looked like he was on crack or some kind of upper, face flushed and rushing around the stage. The Young turks crew had a good laugh and so did the commentators.

  • Jim DelRae

    That actually sounds fun, sign me up..

  • Ani Di Monaco

    Louie looks gay-ish….come on Louie….come to the dark side….we got cookies and stucf

  • Avery Alvarez

    I also want to mention that the heterosexual island would eventually have gay people on it , as the the heteros continue to reproduce. After all, homos come from heteros, so either way, we win. We’ll always be around. That’s nature, btich.

  • Tony Richard

    sounds like a party to me. Gay survivor

  • Jose Irwin

    I really get entertained with this kind of assholes, but disappointed for the people that vote for them.

  • Kent Thompson

    Don’t they know there’s already an island inhabited by the gays?? It’s called Manhattan

  • Maximo Ramos

    Would that be fire island. .?

  • John Hancock

    How about banishing congressmen to that island!!

  • Mark Angstman

    Hey dude, if you’re afraid of gays why don’t YOU banish yourself to an island. Molokai is nice this time of year.

  • Tracey Bly

    sign me up!!!

  • 1EqualityUSA

    All the Hets, looking at our sparkling island, wishing they could escape their roles for a day or two or for years and years.

  • Kevin J Desmond

    How about sending all those bald headed republicans like him to North Korea.

  • Nickolas Page

    maby he should be dropped off in the middle of a desert…. maby he can prove that gods plan doesnt include bigots surviveing on nothing but stupid.

  • Carlos Zuniga

    Is he sending the millions of gay kids too? What about future gays kids and babies? What Island?

  • hyhybt

    Do the same with straight men, you get the same results. So what?

  • Frances Ann Bell

    Some people really need to get their brains in gear before driving their mouths then talk as their arses guides them and this one is top of the list.

  • K Patrick McCarthy

    That island sounds great to me! Where do I sign up?

  • Matthew Katz

    This is an elected official who is supposed to represent his whole district including gay members. He’s a disgrace and a disgusting person.

  • Tommy Ogletree

    I would like for Republicans and Christians to be on an island for 100-200 years as well……..say Antarctica for example.

  • Steve N Liz Cheeseman

    Is he awaiting brain surgery or does he have a death wish time he woke up to the 21st century

  • Ralph Vendegna

    We are going to banish you from Congress you fucking idiot.

  • Kris Swenson

    Ignorance and how these people get themselves dressed in the morning are both without explanation.

  • Brian JC Kneeland

    I have proof this guy is an idiot – so can he be sent to an island as well – right off of Alaska!

  • Patrick Richardson

    love love love ! the Island is manhatten , bite me bitch

  • Lou Mac

    He’s a pathetic moron. Ignore him.

  • Kevin Elsasser

    If a congressman talking nonsense is banished to a deserted island, can anyone hear him? Ship him off.

  • Opine2

    Yep! The Heti Island will be a waste land of over population, crime and an enviromental disaster I cite Easter Island as my proof.

    Our island will of course be a beutiful paradise and we will have to start a immigration selection process for all the hetro guys trying to move in from the straight island.

  • Scott Farmer

    If the government, on all levels, hadn’t decided to try to make a buck off of marriage in the first place or pick winners and losers in the income tax and dependent benefits game, this would be a non issue. Its none of their frickin’ business. And furthermore, real followers of Christ, the church, should know better than to judge, lest they be judged. I am a follower of Christ, not some religious nutjob!

  • Charles Morgan

    Oh once again the intelligence of TEXAS comes out in the form of a bald idiot!

  • Elon L Bugyi

    Make it a condition of employment that he see a therapist on a regular basis. The man doesn’t recognize reality.

  • Donald DeCarlo

    Please send us we would have everything we need

  • Glücklich

    Who elects these dumb fucks? Honestly!

  • Michael Haynes

    How about we send all Republicans and The Christian Right on a Generational Ship, and Banish them to Kepler-452b,

  • Linda Hopp-Hill

    To the gentleman that wants Christians on an island, WHY ? If there was a poll taken, and they all left, where would you pick-up your unemployment check ?

  • Bill Mountrey

    Texas? No wonder he is such a clueless a-hole!

  • Joshua Grubb

    Unfortunately for him he won’t be able to explain why there are then gay children and grandchildren of the heterosexual couples on the “straight ” island

  • Robert Becker

    Gohmert, as usual, completely misses the point. Marriage is a contract entered into by 2 people who pledge to love and care for eachother. The marriage license is issued by the State. Churches are welcome to claim that “To Them” marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman, (shhh… Don’t tell King David with his 1000 wives and concubines) but even the Religious must get a license from the state.

  • David Painter

    I wanna go, kinda like our own Gaystralia. We could send conservatives to their own island called Stuck in the Pastland.

  • Jonathan Isaac Valentine

    I want that face banished to a deserted island for 100 to 200 years. Creepy mofo.

  • Brian J Curtis

    Did someone say free trip to caribbean island?

  • Brian Cartwright

    yeahh . . . forced social experiments like that don??t sound NAZI at all.

  • Philip Ramirez

    Fucking. We will have flying cars, no pollution, and everyone would be healthy and in shape

  • Patrick Fasano

    And what island is for the asshole sheep congressmen?

  • Walt Andersen

    Is there a gas leak, or is someone drugging the water in Congress? One rep wants to basically destroy what is left of the planet, and this ass wants the land masses divided between gays and straights and races. I think the Republicans all need to be kicked out and along with their billionaire overlords locked up and the keys thrown away. Where is Robin Hood or Zorro when you need ’em.

  • Cherry Selene

    Sounds like a party! That island would be beautiful architecture, gardens, fashion… our own gay country…. Not a bad idea Louie Gohmert werk!

  • John Smith

    What old perv, he wants eight gay men on an island? I wonder what he’s going to do with them???

  • Phranc Azzhee

    and yet s’more words from tx, even their mouths are big and irritating.

  • kevininbuffalo

    I knew before I clicked on this that it would be a Christian Republican from the old Confederacy. How did I know this? I must be psychic! :-)

  • Jessie Diaz

    didn’t they say that like 25 years ago? well this time i’m not packing until they send me the ticket. last time i was packed for months. not falling for that again.

  • Alistair Corvin

    Banished to an island? When did we lose Waterloo?

  • Dave Warren

    My stupid Muslim hating parents are goddamned friends with this bastard. NOTHING I present to them can change their insane minds either. It is very hard to love them.

  • Spike

    Wouldn’t be long before the str8s showing up on rafts and ruining the gays only island party.

  • NoCagada

    @Glücklich: TEXAS!

  • NoCagada

    @Dave Warren: Sorry. I bet they call themselves christians…as in “Christ like”…

  • NoCagada

    @Spike: You got that right…hell, we can’t keep the married men from taking over our dating and hookup sites!

  • enfilmigult

    Oh my GOD, I am so tired of hearing this one. You’re not going to prove a frigging thing about the whole of humanity by plucking out a few individuals and isolating them like that. I could use the same logic, make a bee colony of nothing but queens and drones, watch them die out in a season and say “see, proves that queens and drones are useless when it comes to keeping the bee population alive.” Moron.

  • Joel O'Brien

    Please. I would love to be banished to an island. I live in Minnesota.

  • Colin Craig McKee

    Me and 1,000s of men on an island? Where do I sign up?

  • Mark Coassolo

    He is so weak minded that he thinks that he can count and find all the Gays to banish. He doesn’t get it that they are being born right now as he might read this post. They are being born all the time, right now there is a little gay boy and a little lesbian being born in his own state of Texas and many, many more all over the country and the world. It is a losing idea Goober, you can’t banish a truth of life. Homosexuality is just like air and water, it might be uncomfortable to some, but it is truth and cannot be changed.

  • Giancarlo85

    So where all the drum beating gay republicans? NO FUCKING WHERE TO BE FOUND ONCE AGAIN. They all run and hide when they hear republicans talk like this. Louie Gohmert is the heart of the republican party. Some of the gay republican backstabbers would love Gohmert though as he called for an impeachment of Obama.

    You can’t make this shit up. Sad the mentally unstable can seek office.

  • jason smeds

    What Gohmert forgets is that sexual activity between men – from mutual masturbation to grinding to actual penetration – is about fun. Fun, fun, fun. It’s not meant to replace heterosexuality in terms of its significance for the future of the human race.

    A note about heterosexual interactions: they are generally more fun for the man than they are for the woman as the latter’s sex drive is markedly lower than the former’s.

    She basically puts out to please him and keep his happiness meter ticking.

  • Peter Finnamore

    They would likely develope inter-island transportation and have swinger parties, effectively knocking up most all of the females.

  • Gary Yurchak

    Id go if I could live for 200 years LOL!

  • Giancarlo85

    @jason smeds: You show how stupid you are. What do you mean not meant to replace “heterosexuality”? You’re about as dumb as Gohmert.

  • seasailor

    Yay, we finally get our own country!

  • jason smeds

    Even a desperate gay guy would not pick up someone with a face like Gohmert.

  • Donald Zeger

    Really? The only deserted island in this country is a place called Texas. A fate worse than death.

  • martinbakman

    @Giancarlo85: I live in a Repub stronghold , Orange County. The gay Repubs here are mostly sad relics that can’t change. They accept Gohmert and Palin as the best options. Sad!

  • TheBigOne

    If the government is willing to send me to a tropical island with 7 other gay guys (of my choosing, of course LOL) and they provide everything needed for the next 50 or so years, where do I sign up?

    Anything to get me away from these demented christians.

  • Bauhaus

    I wonder if Gohmert removes his dentures before blowing guys at truck stops…

  • tsginamarieva

    Louis Gohmert is widely acknowledged on both sides of the aisle in the House of Representatives as one of the dumbest, most imbecilic members of Congress. If there is a ludicris notion that wanders past a security screener into a House office building, Gohmert wil be certain to find it, embrace it as genius and then champion it like he was fighting for all of the vowels in the magna carta. It’s difficult to fathom how he gets reelected, even from Texas (He just reinforces my belief that we should wall Texas off from the other states and saltpeter its water supply.)

  • corey

    Closet cases are always the worse to their kind, this includes any self-hating minority who is a: Republican, Tea Party member, conservative Christian, (etc.) who is a minority; black, LGBT, immigrant, Muslim, Woman, (etc)

    This politician is a major ass.

  • GG

    Well of course the heteros would procreate. Why the hell does he think we keep them around?

  • Dakotahgeo

    And this Shit For Brains wonders why the South is losing the political and religious wars of today?! Very likely these a$$holes won’t be in power long enough in the future to even sway anyone’s opinions in anything! Low IQ turds!

  • Giancarlo85

    @martinbakman: They accept them because they view the interests of the republican party over their own interests. They think the republican party has some “great plan” for the economy, infrastructure and other issues.

    One can only look at the past 4 republican Presidencies (not counting Gerald Ford as he didn’t do much anyways). Watergate, Iran-Contra, Vomit in the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister and a lie that launched a war that resulted in thousands of dead Americans and over 400,000 dead civilians.

    Some record. I suppose throwing up in the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister was the best Presidency of those four failures. And he only lasted one term and gave us that asshole son of his.

  • GTT

    Gohmert thinks that gays are recruited into being gay — or “choose a gay lifestyle” – he does not understand that people are BORN gay. Dumb.

  • Transiteer

    And this fool got elected – in Texas. Tells you everything.

  • Desert Boy

    I thought Texas was going to secede? What happened? Go ahead on, leave the Union and leave us alone.

    ” What Gohmert forgets is that sexual activity between men – from mutual masturbation to grinding to actual penetration – is about fun. Fun, fun, fun. It’s not meant to replace heterosexuality in terms of its significance for the future of the human race. ”

    A sensible comment.

  • Daggerman

    …actually could we banish HIM to a deserted island? He is an old cretin and very ugly but how does idiots like this get to spout such deranged rubbish in the first place!!

  • Homura Akemi

    My friend is 11 (Don’t worry I’m only 13 and sorry if that’s too young to register for Queerty, I read the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Privacy Statement and I didn’t see any of them say how old you have to be to register for Queerty) and he deserves to be banished to a deserted island for 100-200 years?
