Cross-dressing, sheep-loving, gun-toting church people

Tea-Party-Unity-Logo-sizedThe Tea Party is going through a rebirth.

Earlier this year, a group called Vision America launched a new organization called Tea Party Unity.

The group says it wants to become a “unique clearinghouse and town hall forum where various existing Tea Party leaders can communicate and exchange ideas to help all Tea Parties become more effective.”

Lofty goals.

Let’s dig a little deeper: the group’s founder is notoriously anti-gay – the sort of person who insists on referring to gay people as “sodomites” and proclaiming that AIDS is God’s punishment.

Louie-Gohmert-02-sizedSo, one of the first people to participate in a conference call promoting the new group was none of than our old friend Texas Republican Representative Louie Gohmert.

During the course of the call, Gohmert was asked about his opposition to any gun control legislation.

Up for the challenge, he explained by bizarrely linking the topic to gay marriage and bestiality:

“In fact, I had this discussion with some wonderful, caring Democrats earlier this week on the issue of, well, they said ‘surely you could agree to limit the number of rounds in a magazine, couldn’t you? How would that be problematic?’

Gohmert went on, “And I pointed out, well, once you make it ten, then why would you draw the line at ten? What’s wrong with nine? Or eleven? And the problem is once you draw that limit ; it’s kind of like marriage when you say it’s not a man and a woman any more, then why not have three men and one woman, or four women and one man, or why not somebody has a love for an animal?”

This guy is a jewel.

One more for your delight:

Earlier in the discussion, Gohmert called on Christians to take a more active role in politics because otherwise their churches are going to be forced to hire cross-dressing Satan-worshipers

“You need to educate yourselves on the issues. You need to understand that when there is a law being pushed, as it has for several years, that says that religious institutions should not be exempt from discrimination laws, that it is going to devastate the church, the synagogue, the places of worship that hire people because ultimately they’re saying you have to hire whatever Satan-worshiper, whatever cross-dresser you think might be immoral, that’s against your religious belief.  You are going to be forced to abandon your religious beliefs, and we’ve been seeing that with some of the requirements under Obamacare.”

What’s a bit scary about this is there’s a fair number of people who think like him.
