Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Says ENDA is 'War on Religion', Rips Those Who Ignore 'Plumbing God Created': VIDEO

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) had a chat with Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins today, and Perkins asked Gohmert about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which had a hearing today in the Senate, Right Wing Watch reports.

GohmertAsked Perkins:

"What this would do is give special employment benefits and protections based upon their sexual behavior and orientation. What do you see as the outcome of this? I mean, are you concerned increasingly that this is a way to essentially punish religious freedom in the business environment, in the business sector?"

Replied Gohmert:

"It continues to be part of this administration’s ongoing war on religion, on particularly Judeo-Christian values. But of course this is one that even is extremely contrary to the Muslim religion as well. I mean, Islam, Judaism, although there are plenty of people in Judaism and Christianity who think despite the plumbing that God created, that as the Iowa Supreme Court said, there is no biological evidence of a preference for a man and a woman being married as opposed to a man and a man...It also means that Christian schools will be forced to hire openly homosexual individuals, and it’s kind of tough to teach biblical principles in Romans 1 in a school if you are of the persuasion of being homosexual."

  1. This is news how? Should we expect anything different from these 2 people?

  2. "protections based upon their sexual behavior and orientation" - y'mean like straight people get??? Someone needs to point out to them that the "sexual behavior" we get up do differs only slightly from what the majority of heterosexuals get up to. Duh.

    There may be a *hint* of progress, since they acknowledged there are other religions besides Christianity. Although, of course, it was the shared condemnation of us that they referenced, so there goes progress. [/sarcasm]

  3. You don't know how much I want to set that man down and explain to him how perfectly well my plumbing and my partner's plumbing fit together. I'd say that's "intelligent design" of the first order. Praise the Lord, amen.

  4. It appalls me that bigotry is now referred to as "religious freedom", like it is somehow an inalienable right, and on the same level as Mom and Apple Pie. Someone needs to challenge these fascists and let them know that religious freedom does not allow you to take away rights from others. Who is going to reframe this debate and expose these lies?

  5. Hopefully Rep. Louie Gohmert will go peacefully in his sleep. Tonight.

  6. Christians: "Well we're the victims here because we didn't get exactly what we wanted!"

    Christians are disgusting in how they always portray themselves as the victims of those they openly demonize and persecute.

  7. Oh Gohmert, you old school bigot. Nice to hear you bleat your ignorance and incoherence for all of us to hear.

    They act as though ENDA would give GLB(T, if they are included) people magic powers, and they can never be fired, unlike all other working Americans.

    Guess what? If you're gay and are crappy at your job, you can be fired. If you harass fellow employees, you can be fired. And on down the line. The one thing you can't be fired for? Simply for being gay and nothing else. Just like you can't be fired just for being Christian, and nothing else.

    These people really should be shamed for their victim stance.

  11. Those who scream the loudest, Louie and Tony, looking at you, are often in the deepest of the trenches. And fully lubricated for any and all intruders.

    Enjoy the ride boys.

  13. I was hoping this would be the year that Texas (my home state) could lean toward toward the left. We had a great guy running for Senate, Sean Hubbard, but he didn't win the primary. I still have hope that all the people who moved here from Blue states will get out and vote and change the face of Texas politics.

  14. Gohmert was a homophobic A-hole before he was elected. He is a homophobic A-hole now that he has been elected. He will be a homophobic A-hole when he dies. Gay people in Texas have no representation in the Senate of the United States and I can not name one member of the house delegation which would admit to supporting anything remotely gay friendly.

  15. My religion is against crazy, religious fundies.
    The fact that I can't fire them is against my religion!
    My religious freedom is being entrenched upon!

  16. This rethugnican troll is the persuasion of Moron.

    Hey mister rethugnican;

    Your religious 'right' DOES NOT TRUMPH my primary right to Life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Oh no, sir...

    YOUR 'religious freedom' is just an AMENDMENT.

    Meaning, Mister rethugnican:

  17. LGBT people are winning when ever the anti-gay Christian crazies come out of the loony closet to spew their hate like this. Keep pushing for equal and Civil Rights LGBT brothers and sisters and we will win our freedom that all of the rest of America already has today.

  18. Gohmert is without a doubt the most stupid man in Congress. He can hardly form a sentence, much less a logical thought.

  19. OK... WHAT. THE. F**K????
    it is RIDICULOUS that a western first world nation, in the 21st century does not offer basic human rights protections to all of it's citizens. In most countries it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, culture, health status, SEXUALITY, GENDER, GENDER IDENTITY. I live in a country that is basically a dot in the south Pacific, and the idea that an employer could discriminate against gay employees or prospective employees here is beyod belief! They'd be sued into oblivion, after being publicy shamed on the national news.
    What is wrong with America?????????

  20. "Judge not, lest ye be judged" - is at the heart of anti-discrimination law.

    So of course fake-christianists like Louie here is firmly against it.

  22. His language is ignorant, his terminology is ignorant.... but it's the language and terminology that connects with the most extreme, bigoted population. And there's still enough of them to maintain a big chunk of ignorance in congress.

    While I appreciate having both of my senior parents alive, modern medicine extending lifespans also means the civil rights movement will continue moving at a snail's pace as it trudges through the mire of a voting bloc that includes people who are literally afraid of speaking, let alone acting, against ignorance they believe is supported by the bible.

  23. "...and it’s kind of tough to teach biblical principles in Romans 1 in a school if you are of the persuasion of being homosexual."

    Wow, there's just so many things wrong (theologically, socially, ethically, grammatically) in that sentence I don't know where to begin.

    Hey, Louie, you creten, public schools are not supposed to be teaching religious dogma.

    Posted by: johnny | Jun 13, 2012 5:35:12 AM

  24. You gays are SO confused. Don't you understand that special rights such as the right to discriminate against sexual minorities, and the right to decide about the birth control used by women, and the right to determine what books are pornographic in public libraries, and what sex ed is appropriate in the schools, and who should be able to adopt children--ALL of these special rights accrue to religion. If you aren't a right wing religious crackpot, you are out of luck!

  25. I have no respect for grown men who refer to sexual organs as "plumbing."
