TEXAS — Right Wing Watch reports that Rep. Louie Gohmert thinks he can prove same-sex marriage goes against nature. He just needs several gay men and women, and a deserted island.

Speaking before a group of young conservatives last week, Gohmert proposed a plan to prove that God intended marriage to be between one man and one woman.

“We could take four heterosexual couples, married, and put them on an island where they have everything they need to sustain life,” he 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 100 to 200 years and see which one nature says is the preferred marriage.”

Gohmert also had some choice words for the Supreme Court, accusing the justices of usurping God by saying “forget what Moses said God said, forget what Jesus said God said, we’re God and you go by what we say!”

He also insisted Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg “ought to be impeached” for officiating over the weddings of same-sex couples.
