This Republican wants to strand gay and straight couples on an island to see who survives

Delivering the convocation at Liberty University last week, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert once again requested a congressional study that strands gay and lesbian couples on two deserted islands to prove that homosexuality is against nature.

As Right Wing Watch reports, it’s a pitch he’s made before.

Gohmert was crowing, of course, about the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision and working overtime to demonstrate that people who don’t believe in God should see that same-sex relationships are wholly unnatural:

“Let’s just take a totally secular approach to this. Congress is good about having studies; how about if we take four heterosexual couples and put them on an island where they have everything they need to live and exist and we take four couples of just men and put them on an island where they have all they need to survive and then let’s take four couples of just women and put them on an island and then lets come back in 100 years and see which one nature favors.”
