Gohmert Misleads on ENDA, Criticizes Faith Groups that Affirm Gays and Lesbians 'Despite the Plumbing that God Created'
As Kyle pointed out, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) while speaking on Today’s Issues suggested that he doesn’t believe reports that Commerce Secretary John Bryson suffered a seizure before crashing his car. Host Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council later asked Gohmert about his concerns regarding the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), a bill which today received a Senate committee hearing.
The Texas congressman said the anti-discrimination legislation is “part of this administration’s ongoing war on religion, on particularly Judeo-Christian values,” and asserted that Muslims would also oppose the bill as well. However, Gohmert lamented the growth of Christian and Jewish denominations and organizations that affirm gays and lesbians and defend their rights, saying that they do so “despite the plumbing that God created.”
He went on to deceitfully twist the marriage equality ruling of the Iowa Supreme Court and even said that if ENDA passes “Christian schools will be forced” to employ people “of the persuasion of being homosexual,” even though religious schools are specifically exempt under ENDA.
Perkins: Today, in the Senate they are having a hearing on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act…. What this would do is give special employment benefits and protections based upon their sexual behavior and orientation. What do you see as the outcome of this? I mean, are you concerned increasingly that this is a way to essentially punish religious freedom in the business environment, in the business sector?
Gohmert: It continues to be part of this administration’s ongoing war on religion, on particularly Judeo-Christian values. But of course this is one that even is extremely contrary to the Muslim religion as well. I mean, Islam, Judaism, although there are plenty of people in Judaism and Christianity who think despite the plumbing that God created, that as the Iowa Supreme Court said, there is no biological evidence of a preference for a man and a woman being married as opposed to a man and a man.
Gohmert: It also means that Christian schools will be forced to hire openly homosexual individuals, and it’s kind of tough to teach biblical principles in Romans 1 in a school if you are of the persuasion of being homosexual.
