Nice Knowing Y'all, Louie Gohmert Says God's Gonna Smite Us Now
Well, America, it's been a nice run, but it's all done now, you realize, because the Supreme Court did Gay 9/11 all over us today. And who knows that better than Texas Congress-ballbearing Louie Gohmert, who had dire warnings for the once-great United States of America. Get ready, America: It's Smitin' Time.
Gohmert's statement on the Supreme Court's marriage equality decision reminded us -- like every other wingnut does -- that the Constitution of the United States is a terrible thing, since it provides that Supreme Court justices are appointed, not elected. And they decide Bad Things!
It is a tragic and ominous day for the United States when a decision by five unelected justices of the U.S. Supreme Court blatantly violates the law in order to destroy the foundational building block for society provided by Nature and Nature's God – that was stated as divine law by Moses and Jesus.
Constitution? What Constitution? It's all about Jebus and Moses, really:
Our nation has been blessed with liberty, opportunity, power, and individual prosperity beyond any other nation in history. Both Moses and Jesus stated that it was God's law that ‘a man will leave his father and mother and a woman will leave her home and the two will come together as one.' That defined marriage. Jesus even added that the defined marriage that God brought together should not be divided by anyone. The Supreme Court ruling is heartbreaking for the turmoil it will mean for our nation's future.
Clearly, the Supreme Court didn't take Leviticus, the real law of the land, into account at all. The Court's decision was also totally illegal, because the two obvious bulldaggers on the Court didn't recuse themselves:
It is clear beyond any doubt that Justices Kagan and Ginsberg [sic] have held exceedingly strong opinions that same-sex marriages were constitutional by virtue of their having performed them. When Justices of the highest court in the country believe they do not have to comply with essential laws governing courts themselves, then there is no overriding legitimate law of the land, which action standing alone is enough to substantiate tyranny.
Strangely, Gohmert had no complaints about the bias of the Justices who have performed marriages of straight people, which proves just as clearly that they can't possibly be impartial in the case. Not that it matters, since the whole crowd is unelected. But now that they've gone and ruled -- illegally -- it's time to take shelter, or maybe to immigrate someplace with no gays, since God is going to be One Pissed-Off Deity:
[It] is God who has been the source of this nation's unfathomable blessings. But if Moses, Jesus, and contributors to the Bible were correct, God's hand of protection will be withdrawn as future actions from external and internal forces will soon make clear. I will do all I can to prevent such harm, but I am gravely fearful that the stage has now been set.
Gohmert even quoted the great theologian Thomas Jefferson to prove that we've set the stage for our own destruction:
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever: that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation, is among possible events: that it may become probable by supernatural interference!
Never mind that Jefferson was talking about slavery -- it applies just as certainly to allowing buttsex-based marriage.
Still, Gohmert holds out some hope: since Ginsburg and Kagan clearly should not have been voting, maybe we can all just decide that this decision didn't count:
A major question now looming is whether a nation has to comply with law that was promulgated by a Supreme Court majority that included two justices who were legally barred from participating in the new court-legislated, civilization-changing decision that destroys our nation's heritage of Biblical marriage. May God forgive our Supreme Court majority for its arrogance and its self-apotheosis.
The skies above the United States are remarkably free of brimstone, nonetheless. Even so, if Rep. Gohmert wishes to lock himself in a bunker for a couple of decades until a Republican President and Court undoes this decision, he's certainly welcome to it.
