Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert has stated that gay marriage is contributing to the undoing of America.

Gohmert, a Republican, reacted to the more than 100 Republicans who have signed on to an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8, California's 2008 voter-approved amendment which defines marriage as a heterosexual union.

“I don't know where they're going,” Gohmert told The Huffington Post Gay Voices Editor Michelangelo Signorile at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) taking place in National Harbor, Maryland.

“The great thing about this country is, I have no problem with 100 people telling the Supreme Court, filing an amicus brief, whatever they did, saying this is what we believe. But when you look historically, you see the nuclear family home – mother, father, children – break down, you see society break down, and you see a society, and a civilization in decline. All under the guise, under the name of advancement but it's normally on the road to the dust bin of history.”

“How is gay marriage contributing to that?” Signorile asked.

“You're breaking up the nuclear family – a man, a woman and children. It's hard to argue with the fact that biologically that's what nature intended or we would never have had a second generation on his Earth.”
