Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican,
has reiterated his call for the impeachment of Supreme Court justices
over the court's marriage equality ruling.
In a 5-4 decision, the high court
declared that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to
Gohmert called the ruling “illegal”
during an interview with Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman.
Gohmert falsely claimed that the
Supreme Court's rulings on church-state separation mandated that “you
can't talk about God in schools and public places.”
“The Supreme Court said, 'You know,
we told you you couldn't use God, now here's the new line: We're
said of the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision. “We
are your God. Forget what God, Moses, Jesus ever said. We are your
God now, the five of us in the majority. You do as we tell you.'”
Gohmert added that Justices Ruth Bader
Ginsburg and Elena Kagan should be impeached for participating in the
case after having united several gay couples in matrimony.
“We have two of them who have done
same-sex marriages before they participated. They were disqualified,
but they illegally participated. It's an illegal decision. And it's
time to start impeaching judges and remove them from the Supreme
Court,” he said.
