Speaking to a group of young conservatives last week about the need to impeach Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan over marriage equality, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) proclaimed that a study trapping gays and lesbians on an island would prove that “what nature says is the preferred marriage,” reports Right Wing Watch.
Gohmert explained he believes the justices should be impeached for their lack of constitutional competency, and described how his “study” would prove that nature favors heterosexual marriage:
“We could take four heterosexual couples, married, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to sustain life. Then take four all-male couples and put them on an island with all they need to sustain life, take four couples of women, married, and put them on an island, and let’s come back in 100 to 200 years and see which one nature says is the preferred marriage.”
