Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Beautiful Defense Of DADT: It Helps Gays Control Their Hormones

When you’ve got Family Research Council chief Tony Perkins claiming, in the Washington Post, that homosexuality is a “self-destructive behavior” that “adults may engage” just like “alcohol, drugs, reckless driving, or heterosexual activity outside of marriage,” it’s no wonder that guests on his Washington Watch Weekly radio program feel welcome to make the same illogical arguments. Like Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert just did!

On Friday’s program, Gohmert told Perkins, “Some people say, ‘Where is homosexuality in violation of the Ten Commandments?’ Well it’s adultery, it’s sexual relations outside of marriage, a man and a woman ….. specifically for the military, when anyone, whether their homosexual or heterosexual, cannot control their hormones to the point that they are distraction[s] to the good order and discipline of the military, then they need to be removed from the military.”

But we should come to expect these things from Rep. Gohmert. This is the same man who takes to the House floor to defend the military’s right to belittle homos. [Wonkroom]
