In this week’s episode of “The Louie ‘Terror Babies’ Gohmert Files,” the East Texas congressman expresses his rejection of both marriage equality and evolution.
As our friends at Right Wing Watch report, Gohmert — speaking on a right-wing program — went on a rambling diatribe about the Supreme Court’s ruling against the Defense of Marriage Act. At one point he explained that King Solomon would have remained “the wisest man in the history of mankind” if he had just stuck to one wife. And then he dragged evolution into the discussion:
“From a philosophical standpoint, you know, we got intellectuals on the court who are believed to support the idea that evolution is how mankind got here and there is an ongoing evolution occurring. And I can’t just help but wonder, as these brilliant intellectuals have gotten to this point, how marriage between two men fits into the evolving of producing higher offspring that make the species higher and better.”
