Rep. Louis Gohmert, who might well be the dumbest man ever elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, says that we have elected leaders — he means President Obama, of course — that are going to bring down the wrath of God on the United States.
Gohmert then went on to warn that God will punish America for “turning its back on Christians and Jews around the world.”
“I am very afraid since I know,” he said, “that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. It doesn’t matter how many people in America are faithful followers, we have put into place leaders who may bring down judgment on the United States if we don’t start helping the good guys.”
How ridiculous and frightening is it that the most powerful country in the world has people in positions of power that think we should make public policy on the basis of their bizarre beliefs in an interpretation of a holy book? No wonder so much of the world rolls their eyes at us.
