Louie Gohmert Urges Christians to Pray That SCOTUS Will Throw Out the Election and Let the House Decide

The Family Research Council hosted a rally in Georgia Tuesday aimed at mobilizing conservative Christians to vote in the state’s upcoming runoff election, which will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate next term.

Among the speakers at the rally was Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, who ripped the Supreme Court for dismissing an effort by the state of Texas to overturn the results of the recent presidential election and urged the audience to pray that the court will throw out the results of that election, allowing the House of Representatives to decide who becomes president.

“Don’t you think it’s time that we had Supreme Court justices that quit worrying about intimidation and quit worrying about threats and said, ‘We are here by God’s grace, we took an oath to God and we are going to follow the oath to our Constitution and our God and this mockery of an election is not going to define this country’?” Gohmert said. “Some say we don’t have a remedy. Some say we don’t have jurisdiction. The Constitution says they do. And the remedy is you throw out the bad votes, and if you don’t know what they are, you throw out the certification, and let the House decide, just as the Constitution said. And you need to pray for that very thing.”
