Louie Gohmert Puts His Foot Down, Says No To Gay Space Colonies

The thought hadn't occurred to anyone but Goober.

Remember when Louie Goober Gohmert argued on the House floor that gay rights is wrong and so is same sex marriage because if there was a gay island everyone would die off? Well now he's got a new spin on that old story.

Goober upped his game a bit on Thursday when he argued on the house floor that not only would we not have gay islands, but we also wouldn't send gay couples or gay animals into space to start a new colony on a distant planet.

He said that if lawmakers had to decide “whether humanity would go forward or not” in case of an imminent asteroid collision by putting people in a “space ship that can go, as Matt Damon did in the movie, plant a colony somewhere, we can have humans survive this terrible disaster about to befall, if you could decide what 40 people you put on the spacecraft that would save humanity, how many of those would be same-sex couples? You’re wanting to save humankind for posterity, basically a modern-day Noah, you have that ability to be a modern day Noah, you can preserve life. How many same-sex couples would you take from the animal kingdom and from humans to put on a spacecraft to perpetuate humanity and the wildlife kingdom?”

But due to the attacks on “natural order” and religious freedom, Gohmert said, “we don’t have much longer to go.”

Oh, come on, Louie. A gay couple or two won't wreck the expedition. It might even make it more fun!

Does he stay awake at night imagining things like this, or does it just pop into his brain on the spur of the moment?
