Texas Rep On His Standard Anti Same Sex Marriage Rant




I'm pretty sure the Supreme Court has settled the issue, but let the man have his say. CSPAN always needs filler.

But you have to love his argument which comes up around the 2:00 mark. If an asteroid were to be headed towards earth and you had to load 40 people into a space craft to launch them in order to "save humanity", how many would be same sex couples?  Whoa. Good argument. But I'd trump him with a counter-proposal of putting one polygamist male with 39 fertile females on the rocket. Heck, make it one polygamist male, one female fertility doctor, and 38 other fertile females. (My Bridgeport math skills are finally paying off.)

Credit for his reference to a 1998 Matt Damon movie. Points subtracted for not doing a mic drop and walking away.

He is a Baylor graduate. Maybe he can take Ken Starr's place.

One male with 39 fertile females to save humanity? I thought you believed in Darwin, counselor.

Actually, they would be better off sending all females and the frozen sperm of many men to prevent inbreeding.

We don't need a Wise county starter kit on a new planet.

Pretty sure The Martian came out last year, not 1998. Unless I missed a reference to Saving Private Ryan or Rounders in his speech. If so, apologies.

Dumb. Watching people try to use biblical logic is as advanced as 3 year olds play soccer.

Get away from religion. Life is much better.

11:53 is completely right. But I also still don't understand why men like Gohmert think that gay/lesbian = infertile. Or that penis in vagina sex is still the best surefire way to propagate the species. Basic science and the truth in the importance of infinite diversity in infinite combinations really hang these trogs up. Texas never ceases to be an embarrassment.

So, the US Supreme Court has settled the issue, eh? I think the God of Abraham beat 'em to it by a couple of thousand years. Furthermore, the US Supreme Court cannot change the Word of God. Oh, they can try, but it's not gonna work.

Barry, do you like the idea of passive, gender-confused individuals being in the military? Why? Do you like the idea of your 7th grade stepdaughter sharing a rest room with a man who claims he is a woman? Why?

Is it okay (in your mind) if people want to further expand the definition of marriage? Polygamy? Bestiality? Why?

Hey Wordkyle, when someone makes a joke, a funny or interesting person will play along.

Bores like you do just what you did.

To really drive the congressman crazy, make sure all 40 of the women are lesbian. That way, with the frozen semen, you have the best of all worlds.
