Saw this from our own Dave Edwards, and this part made me chuckle.

In a Capitol Hill press conference, Gohmert referred to the Supreme Court justices who voted in favor of striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as “the five new holy quintets.”

“For them — I don’t know what kind of cloistered walls this court has been behind,” he opined. “They were not aware that the most wise man in history, Solomon, said there’s nothing new under the sun. And this isn’t new, and it’s been tried over and over. And it’s usually tried at the end of a great civilization.”

Someone who's actually read the bible instead of just waving it around at press conferences might want to tell Gohmert that Solomon isn't the best historical figure to cite when defending marriage between "one man and one woman" -- in light of the fact that he had 700 wives and 300 concubines.

Idiot.
