    What, they’d have to go back to being Roman Catholic? :-D

  2. I’d say he’s an arsehole but words fail me

    1. I think your chosen words succeed succinctly. No failure there.

  3. Is this guy for real?

    Sorry to be personal, but that looks like the face of an IMBECILE! And what comes out of its mouth seems to confirm that looks are NOT deceiving!

    April Fool’s was two days ago Mr Gohmert.

  6. What a total loon. Thank you for making a few more people leave the church with your ramblings.

  7. Churches already hire cross dressers don’t they? Sorry, I think that they are called priests, they wear lovely frocks don’t they!

    What a complete and utter tool the man is!

  8. Is he blind as well as stupid? There are already cross dressers in he churches. Has he not noticed the pope and his men in dresses, hats and bling to the heavens.

  9. I think this man may actually be insane.

    He compares the mutual love of two people with the one-sided love of a human and an animal yet he criticises gun control and universal healthcare.

    I mean, come on! He’s obviously insane or evil. Surely that’s obviously to anyone listening to him?!

    That’s a photo-shopped face if ever I saw one.

    Either that or he’s smothered in make-up.

    This is what passes for conservatism in America. C4M will have a field day with this one.

  12. This sort of off-the-scale looniness is just what we need. Thanks, Gohmert!

  13. A camel’s-nose fallacy is not a valid argument, it’s a sign that you don’t have a valid argument and are just grasping at straws because you know you’ve already lost.

    Also, what he’s asking for isn’t religious freedom, it’s religious freedom for his religion and his religion only. Someone doesn’t grasp the scope of the world around him…

  14. Opposes gun control and healthcare, and of course is opposed to SSM. Well at least he is consistently malevolent.

    OMGaga!! How boring that they come out with the same completely idiotic comments….

    Force churches to hire ‘cross-dressers’? er hello they already where frocks!!!

    As for Satan worshippers…. have they looked in a mirror… there they’ll see pure evil!

    Talk about spewing a load of crap but then these people seem to have a lot of problems with verbal diarrhoea!!

    Laughable.

    I think all these nutters are doing a great job to push the majority to accept equal marriage ever faster.
    Thank you, crazy weird evil man. I couldn’t come up with a caricature as ridiculous as you.

    He’d have a breakdown if anyone told him about the Pink Pistols.

  18. Garry Cassell 3 Apr 2013, 4:23pm

    Just when you think you have heard all the weirdest and stupidest comments from these moron GOP’s…guess what there’s always more…Where do these very stupid people come from and even more stranger is why in the hell do any sane voter vote for these stupid morons…?

  19. As Bobby Jindal said to Republicans recently – stop being the party of stupids! I think he was speaking of imbeciles like Gohmert and the many many unthinking GOPs in politics.

  20. Citizens of the world, you should know that Louie Gohmert is a joke in America. Only his backwoods, in-bred, home-schooled constituents think otherwise.

  21. “Equal marriage will force churches to hire ‘cross dressers and Satan worshippers”

    So no change at all then?

  22. As we all know, Canada and other countries that have had equal marriage for a while are hotbeds of satanism and bestiality…

    …NOT! Idiot.

  23. There is clearly no END to the imagined doom that homophobes can dream up regarding allowing us the right to exist as totally equal citizens.

  24. This ret@rd is the -spitting image- of Mr Burns from The Simpsons!!

    1. Liam the God 3 Apr 2013, 10:15pm

      “Smithers, release the hounds!”

  25. What is funny is the Texas’ radio campaign in California trying to pouch business. They honestly don’t see that this sort of governance will not attract modern industry or any corporation concerned with talent above ideology.

  26. Liam the God 3 Apr 2013, 11:03pm

    Actually, looking at that face again I have decided it’s Golum from Lord of the Rings! “Yesssss, MY marriagessiss! They wantsss to takes it away from us, my Preciousss, yess, but Smeagle won’t LETS them! Marriagesss is all MINESES!”

    And if you try to tell him about the Slippery Slope being an actual rhetorical FALLACY, well, he’ll probably just accuse you of European intellectualism. He knows that smart people avoid college because that’s where SATAN lives!
