Video: Louie Louie, oh no -- me gotta go (vomit)

by Jeremy Hooper

Last week, we let you hear U.S. Rep Louie Gohmert (Very Far R-TX) lash out against the "inappropriate" gays, with his opposition to the LGBT community's civil protections based 100% on his Southern Baptist faith. Now, Inside, Looking Out gives us this new video, wherein the Congressman again uses far more words than he needs in order to mask the fact that he really just doesn't care so much for 'mos:

Our least favorite part? All of it, in full, when the Congressman reminds us just how much abject disdain there still is for our community. This is of course nothing new coming from Congressman "pedophilia/flashing/exhibitionism/farting-on-a-Sunday is a sexual orientation" Gohmert. But it's still eye-opening (and ear-bleeding) to continually witness the pointed detestation.

Your thoughts

I doubt I have much in common with Gohmert, but he does have a point that it would go too far to hold a person making a sermon responsible for someone else doing a murder. Would the bill really do that? You might as well hold a TV company responsible for a cancer death because they showed a cigarette-smoking character.

No, Londoner, it would not do anything of the sort (unless, obviously, the preacher directly called for violence or murder -- just like anyone else).

This is a talking point that the far-right in America has been using to discredit hate crimes. Gohmert has been one of the biggest offenders.
