I thought conservatives love our Constitution. But, when it’s not convenient, they say that Jesus’ law should supercede it.

Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert went on a rambling tangent Thursday in Congress that started with his disagreement with the Trans-Pacific Partnership and spiraled into what was almost a sermon denouncing gay marriage.

Gohmert believes the United States was founded as and meant to be a Christian nation and that the laws of Moses and Jesus trump the Supreme Court. The Court is set to issue a ruling on gay marriage later this month.

It is a matter of a constitutional crisis when the Highest Court in the land not merely strikes down and says that their opinion is more important than Moses’, depicted up there in the center point of this room, more important than Moses’, depicted in the marble wall over the Supreme Court, holding the Ten Commandments,” the congressman said on the House floor.

“The Supreme Court says theirs is more important than the opinions established and stated by Jesus Christ when he said–and he was quoting Moses–that a man shall leave his mother and father, a woman leave her home, and the two will come together and be one flesh, and what God has joined together, let no man put asunder.”

He expressed paranoia that non-Christians were going to “take over the country.”

“The great thing is that, if a nation is established on Judeo-Christian beliefs, it allows anybody to live here and to function here and to do so without impediment to one’s beliefs because one can be an atheist, an agnostic, a Buddhist, a Muslim, Gohmert said, according to a transcript of his speech. “You can be any of those things, as long as you are not trying to take over the country like some would like to do.”

    Louie…you may think you’re a Christian, but you’re not. Christ NEVER preached the hate you do.

    says that their opinion is more important than Moses’, depicted up there in the center point of this room, more important than Moses’, depicted in the marble wall over the Supreme Court, holding the Ten Commandments,”

    OK. I’ll bite. Which of the Ten Commandments says anything about same sex marriage? I know there is stuff in there about swearing, adultry, being jealous of your neighbors new lawnmower & such though. Seems like he would be more ‘biblical’ if he were railing against his fellow lawmakers for not outlawing working on the Sabbath or something else that is actually covered by the biblical law he referred to.

    It’s almost like he is full of baloney or something…

      Hey, it’s Tejas… the Blue Laws there weren’t that long ago… when each Sunday you were prohibited from buying the spatula (although apparently Gawd said it’s OK to buy the pan!) (say what?) … W & Ricky’s sandbox!

      • Dwendt44 June 20th, 2015 at 1:16 pm

        I lived in Texas while those Blue Laws were in effect. Sunday shopping was crazy. Areas were roped off with items you couldn’t buy on Sunday. One store tried a way around that by ‘selling’ everything to another company that was ONLY open on Sunday. Worked for a while until some ‘do gooder’ took them to court and the court put a stop to that.
        IIRC, you could buy rubbing alcohol but not cotton balls.

      No false witness.
      A biological living process, misrepresenting from what is real, is breaking every law in the book.
      For example: how many Christians break the law and go against jesus, most ever day? (Matt 16:20, john 14:30, mark 10:17-19)
      The USA is no Christian nation nor ever was intended to be.

    <-+++ ??? After being fired from my old job 6 months ago, i've had luck to learn about this great company online that was a lifesaver for me… They offer online home-based work. My last month payment after working with them for 4 months was 10000 bucks… Great thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…If you think this could be for you then find out more here

    This is a SECULAR country under a SECULAR Constitution. The law of the land says explicitly that this country was NOT founded on the christian religion.
    Louis apparently slept through that part of history class.

    • Suzanne McFly June 20th, 2015 at 8:44 am

      Texas uses different history books than the rest of the country.

    “You can be any of those things, as long as you are not trying to take over the country like some would like to do.”

    Oh… like you?

    I wonder what the House janitors says about Louie when his rants echo in an empty chamber?

    Maybe they mutter, “Louis, dammit, will you please go home? Tonight’s Halo Night and the old lady is gonna be fit to be tied if I’m late again!’

    • arc99 June 20th, 2015 at 1:16 am

      I grew up in DC and still have friends and family there.

      My hunch is that as long as Louie-Louie is not keeping the custodial staff from catching the Redskins on Monday or Thursday Night football, they don’t mind the time and a half pay for overtime.

    When did Congressman Gohmert hire Dylann Roof as his new speech-writer?

    Who…in their right mind would want to live anywhere near to Gohmert

  14. William June 20th, 2015 at 10:00 am

    Screwy Louie seems to be completely unaware that the notion of this being a Christian nation is in no way supported anywhere in the Constitution.
    It is important to remember that Gohmert is the product of a Texas education.

    I was always taught that we are a nation; Of the people, By the people, and For the people. I always believed that this meant ALL of the people. This Nematode Brain seems to believe it is a nation, OF the Christian Right Wing, By the Christian Right Wing, and For the Christian Right Wing. I got news for him. “Hell is waiting for you.”

    • Bishadi June 20th, 2015 at 11:34 am

      The fool believing that US is a Christian nation, is their hell; living a lie.

      • The Original Just Me June 20th, 2015 at 12:32 pm

        No, our Hell is living with them among us and they breed at night. Or any other time they get a chance.

        • Bishadi June 20th, 2015 at 12:48 pm

          Sex is a good thing.
          The hell is within the obtuse mind, living a lie.

  16. Brian Geary June 20th, 2015 at 11:23 am

    Notice he doesn’t have the balls to include Jews in with his “buddhists, atheists, Muslims, etc.”
    Which is ironic, b/c if you look at the people at the top of most “atheist” organizations today, which go after Christianity, they are Jewish.

    • Dwendt44 June 20th, 2015 at 1:09 pm

      One guy is “MOST”?

  17. Bishadi June 20th, 2015 at 11:35 am

    With politicians like that, no wonder so many don’t like US.

  18. Ronald Woolever June 20th, 2015 at 11:49 am

    Well Louie Americans have been ignoring that bible passage about ‘what god has brought together let no man put asunder.’ The divorce rate in this country is around 50%. Also real law always trump religious fakery. There is no god, Jesus and Mohammed, where just hucksters.

  19. labman57 June 20th, 2015 at 12:47 pm

    Disturbing, but hardly surprising.
    And unfortunately, the official House Howler Monkey is not the only member of Congress that has embraced this politically perverse point of view.

    Gotta give him points for consistency – all idiot, all the time!
