Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican,
explained last week that gays can't have “what nature says is the
preferred marriage,” because if placed on an island they would die
Gohmert made the statement while
speaking at the Washington, D.C. conference of the college chapter of
Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum.
“We could take four heterosexual
couples, married, and put them on an island where they have
everything they need to sustain life,” Gohmert
said. “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

Gohmert also said that Supreme Court
Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg “ought to be impeached”
for not recusing themselves from the case that struck down gay
marriage bans in all 50 states after officiating the legal weddings
of gay couples.
"I think they ought to be impeached. I
think they ought to be removed. And until Congress shows that we do
have some say in the Constitution over the courts, the abuses are
just going to get worse,” he said.
