Rep. Louie Gohmert fails to debunk homosexuality, does prove that God has a weird sense of humor

Both the saddest and scariest thing about the following comment made by Rep. Louis Gohmert R-Texas (to a group of young conservatives. Pray for them even if you're an atheist.) is not that he actually thinks it makes sense. It's that he is a practically an unbeatable elected official in a conservative territory and his party is the majority in the House. This means that if he isn't already, he could be head of a committee which the very livelihood of Americans could depend on.

When you ignore some homophobes, they don't go away. They just get elected to public office, proving that maybe God has a weird sense of humor.

Rep. Louie Gohmert R-Texas
"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""

I don't think I can add anything to that except wouldn't it be scary to contemplate that Gohmert could live 100 to 200 years?

Starting from only four couples? If there's going to be anyone left in 100 to 200 years, there's going to have to be (1) relatively large families and (2) a lot of cousins marrying each other!

How about putting the heterosexual, gay male and lesbian couples on the same island and letting them all participate in the child-rearing?
