The tour of right wing bigot freakouts continues with the single dumbest man in Congress, Rep. Louis Gohmert. Like his fellow theocrats, he thinks it’s somehow relevant that the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling contradicts what the Bible says. And of course, his big bad invisible buddy is totally going to beat us up now.
“Founders and leaders including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and most all of the Presidents have noted that it is God who has been the source of this nation’s unfathomable blessings,” Gohmert stated. “But if Moses, Jesus, and contributors to the Bible were correct, God’s hand of protection will be withdrawn as future actions from external and internal forces will soon make clear. I will do all I can to prevent such harm, but I am gravely fearful that the stage has now been set.”
Oh, you absolutely should do all that you can, Louis. You should turn yourself into an anti-gay superhero, with a cape and everything. Call yourself the Divine Avenger. Your superpower, naturally, would be shooting bullshit at people.
“It is a tragic and ominous day for the United States when a decision by five unelected justices of the U.S. Supreme Court blatantly violates the law in order to destroy the foundational building block for society provided by Nature and Nature’s God — that was stated as divine law by Moses and Jesus,” he said.
No, actually, it’s not a tragic day at all. It’s just another day that confirms that this country is not a theocracy, no matter how badly you want it to be. God has no vote here, nor do Moses or Jesus. Unfortunately, you still do, along with millions of other people who think their religious beliefs give them the right to oppress others. But you’re losing. The days of your hegemony are coming to an end. So sad for you, really. Totally broken up about it.
